lyrics

He drinks tears from the eyes of the true believers
They cling hard to the side of the one who threw ‘em their last line
Divine light of his ego warms their numb minds
Where is my
Anodyne, anodyne
Desperation wine
Anodyne, anodyne

Are you sick with a lack of imagination?
The gatekeepers get paid selling you what you already own
Dive, willingly blind, into the best lie
You can buy

Anodyne anodyne
Desperation wine
Anodyne anodyne
To liberate you from your mind
Anodyne anodyne
Free-est enterprise
Anodyne anodyne

First comes the crisis
to blow your doors wide
Your savior’s a salesman
who steps right inside
Quoting you prices
To keep hope alive
He leads to you a ledge
And leaves you with no goodbye

Anodyne anodyne
Desperation wine
Anodyne anodyne
To liberate me from my mind
Anodyne anodyne
Free-est enterprise
Anodyne anodyne
