    All my life I have taken the bitter pill

    My father died, I was five, I took the bitter pill.

    Realizing as a child life was going to be hard

    I took the bitter pill.

     

    Growing up alone, I was in my head.

    Living, with the bitter pill.

    I was dreaming or even dead

    Taking those bitter pills.

     

    I was locked up against my will

    I took the bitter pill.

    The doctors said I had to

    So I took those bitter pills.

     

    Things that were said

    Others always dishing the bitter pill.

    Pain comes from all sides now,

    So I take the bitter pills.

     

    Dreams came by and off they went

    I took the bitter pill.

    Burning out before I am dead

    Taking these bitter pills.

     

    Then things went wrong in my head

    I took more bitter pills.

    Forward on my loved ones went

    I took the bitter pill.

     

    Couldn’t be here, couldn’t be there

    So I took the bitter pill.

    Fortunes were made then left

    I took the bitter pill.

     

    Seasons came by and went

    I took the bitter pill.

    What if love isn’t Heaven sent?

    I took that bitter pill.

     

    Now I am older and will not relent

    I’ve taken the bitter pill.

    The view here is treacherous……

    No more, the bitter pill.
