Hello rosebuds! Here's the acoustic version of Six Pills. Thank you guys so much for listening to this song, it really means so much to me. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

Here's an excerpt about the song:

This song was inspired by a very dark time in my life. Most days, I woke up feeling dead inside. During some of the worst days, I fantasized about self-medicating and wondered if drugs would help ease my emotional pain.

One night, I had a nightmare where I was tempted into taking a pill. In the dream, I ended up paralyzed in a hospital. I woke up in a panic, afraid that I was going to die.


I think I had this dream because it was my subconscious telling me that drugs would probably make my life much worse, not better. More importantly, it was telling me that I still had the will to live. After all, how could I be scared of death if I was truly dead inside?

I wrote this song shortly afterwards, to remind myself of these revelations.

Rosendale - Six Pills (Acoustic Version)


Written, recorded and produced by Brian Wang

Lyrics:


In the woods I met a man

Old as oak and staff in hand

Sunken eyes but gentle smile

We sat down and talked awhile


And he said I can see it in your eyes

You’ve been hurt a couple times

I’ve got the perfect antidote

To cure a heart of stone

Tiny red pills in a big blue bottle

He put them right in my hands

Said this stuff can do wonders take you to nirvana

Make you a better man


I should’ve known something was amiss

When I saw his smile turn to a grin

But

Then as he left me

There so perplexed

He turned and said

One to numb the hurt

Two to ease the pain

Three to clear your mind

Forget all the hate

Take as I advised

Not more than prescribed

Several weeks ahead

You’ll be fine again

One to numb the hurt

Two to ease the pain

Three to clear your mind

Forget all the hate

Take as I advised

Not more than prescribed

Several weeks ahead

You’ll be fine again


So I went home

My heart confused

Didn’t know just what to do

I popped the cap

And took a dose

After all what could I lose


And then I touched the clouds and bathed in sky

A magic broom a carpet ride

Before I fell and woke in bed

Tried to repeat the words he said

One to numb the hurt

Two to ease the pain

Three to clear my mind

Forget all my hate

What did he say next

I forget the rest

But several weeks ahead

I’ll be fine again


One to numb the hurt

Two to ease the pain

Three to clear my mind

Forget all my hate

Five could never hurt

Just to calm my nerves

Several weeks ahead

I’ll be fine again

Tiny red pills in a big blue bottle

Wish I had the strength back then

Need to get a refill chase away the evil

All the whispers in my head

But I can’t find the man I knocked on his door

His neighbors say no one lived there before

So now all my days

Just blur in a haze

They go like this

One to stop the chills

Two to ease the pain

Three to wash my guilt

Forget all my shame

Five could never hurt

Six couldn’t be worse

Seven days it’s been

Here we go again


One to stop the chills

Two to ease the pain

Three to wash my guilt

Forget all my shame

Five could never hurt

Six couldn’t be worse

Seven days it’s been

Here we go again

Here we go again

Here we go again

Oh


To stop the pain

Forget my shame

Ah

One

Two

Three

Four

Five

Six
