From the album Six Strings and Me

Lyrics

She works all day trying to please her mother
Filling up the shoes of her older brother
And her man walked out cuz he just don’t love her no more

So we run a few tests and come up with a label
Tell her she’s depressed and her mind’s not stable
Take it twice a day and it just might make you well

But the chemicals just don’t satisfy
So she cuts her hands and her veins run dry
Leaves us all wondering why she left

And her note reads oh, oh, oh
I’m sorry i must go oh oh
I just can’t take no more oh oh
So I'm going to a place with no more pain
And I won’t be back again

He’s a million dollar man with a house in town
And he works all day until the sun goes down
But his wife’s long gone and his kids don’t know his name

So we run a few tests and come up with a label
Tell him he’s depressed and his mind’s not stable
Take it twice a day and it just might make you well

But the chemicals can’t fill up the hole
That he’s always had inside his soul
So he bites the bullet and puts one through his head

And his note reads oh, oh, oh
I’m sorry i must go oh oh
I just can’t fight no more oh oh
So I'm going to a place with no more pain
And I won’t be back again

Though death promises peace
It only brings pain
To the ones who are left behind
We stay up crying all night
Wondering why
You left them before it was time

And we're screamin' out oh oh oh
Why’d you have to go oh oh
And leave me here alone oh oh
In this world so full of pain
So full of pain, and suffering
So full of pain, and suffering

And we're screamin' out oh oh oh
Why'd you have to go oh oh
And leave me here alone oh oh
In this world so full of pain
