Lyrics Alanis Morissette – Rest

All these relief-givers
The needle sure revs in the red
Chemicals like hugs from inside
They feel like my best friend

You think me a coward but I am a warrior
With many voices in my head
When I looked around and I reached out
I saw no alternative

And God rest, God rest our souls
And this substance is the only comfort I know
He's been hurting for a while
Can we cut this man some slack
Let him lie down, let him lie down

We are a country
Desperate for the embryonic
I'm cold and I'm hungry
And I yearn for a hand on my forehead

You think it's a walk in the park and it's easy
She's got it as good as it gets
This misunderstanding's a line between living
Or being the walking dead

And God rest, please rest our souls
And the more I take, the less comfort I know
She's been pushing for a while
Can we cut this woman slack
Let her lie down, let her lie down

The more that you hurl at me
The more I will curl up in my bed
And where's the humanity?
Aren't we all hovering around the same end?

Door number 1, 2 and 3 have been promises
That aren't enough to be kept
You wish me a speedy recovery
But when you turn I plumb the depths

And God rest, God please rest our souls
This is the surest exit I have known
We've been hurting for a while
Can we cut ourselves some slack
Let us lie down, let us lie down
Let us lie down, let me lie down
