Valium (Basement Version)

from A Perfect Oasis of Dread: The Best of Brent by Brent Gorton



Recorded during band rehearsal in my basement. Appeared on "Call the Local Cops" which featured other live tracks from our band rehearsal. Some people might think this is a song about drugs, but it's really about dealing with a terrible world that's indifferent to your existence. Some people happen to deal with it by way of drugs, prescribed or otherwise.

Does it even matter how many I take? Things are getting better if I can stay awake. I don't need a cure for darkness. I only wanted to be happy...some of the time.
