Lie back now and close your eyes
This little pill has a big surprise
It will pick you up if youíre feeling down
It will make you smile when you want to frown
Feeling sad? No, that wonít do
Take another, yes, take two
Feeling angry, frustrated, depressed?
Take this one, it eliminates stress
If itís feelings that you want to numb
Well this one here will make you dumb
Ever feel like youíre going crazy?
Hereís a pill, might make you a bit hazy
Canít concentrate? Mindís a mess?
Hereís one to make it a little less
Is anxiety ruining your mood?
Make sure to take this one with food
Having trouble getting to sleep?
This one will have you counting sheep
You just want to dull your senses?
ďLittle white houses with picket fencesĒ
I notice your child is a little hyper
Even though heís still in diapers
This pill will help to calm him down
Little prince with a pill-bottle crown
You can overachieve and do it all
This little pill wonít let you fall
Itís like a friend, itíll help you out
Youíll have no need for worry or doubt
Donít let those feelings creep up on you
Hey, maybe you should take a few
Itíll do no harm, no side effects
Be sure to sign your name on all the checks
Now where is my prescription pad?
People steal them, itís really sad
They say theyíll die, they think they will
If they donít get this little pill
Donít know why they feel that way
I write a hundred of these a day
No one ever comes in to complain
They say the pills relieve the pain
Youíre not the only one, you see
They all line up to pay my fee
My next patient is already here
Your fifteen minutes is up, my dear

Author's Notes: First I'd like to state that I AM NOT ON TOM CRUISE'S TEAM! (heehee) I believe there are people who benefit from psychiatric medicines, and who am I to tell someone what works for them? This is just my take on the state of our country where drugs are concerned, especially anti-depressants. I know from experience how these work to completely numb you to any emotional connections. I have a big problem with people being treated for "mental disorders" when it really is a matter of emotional issues that medications don't treat, only relieve symptoms. People under-estimate the power of our minds to make ourselves sick, and to heal ourselves. We all want a "magic little pill" to "fix" us...when really we all have the ability to do it ourselves.
