Meaning of the lyrics?

Postby slaine » Sun Apr 10, 2011 12:45 pm

I was hoping to include the song Anti-D by The Wombats in my english essay, but I'm not quite sure if I have interpreted the lyrics correctly. What is the meaning of this song?

Lyrics:
Please allow me to be your anti-depressant
I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

We kick back and let the pills do the talking
People hear a distinct rattle when we're walking
Then there's the extra two stone that's our only guarantee

Our vivid dreams are just like big production movies
They get entangled well within our daily routines
So please re-think or use my trademark strategy

And please allow me to be your anti-depressant
I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

It's hard to smile when you're as flattened as a pancake
The only tears come from our heads when we concentrate
Perhaps I'm being unjust or perhaps you agree

Still I've thrown away my citalopram
I needed more than what was in those 40 milligrams
So cast away with the doctor's plans

And please allow me to be your anti-depressant
I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

Still I've thrown away my citalopram
Although I felt as grim as the reaper man
So cast away with the doctor's plans
Like me

God is the answer.
It's saying that you should rely on something greater than anti-depressant, something that is free.
The outside world is taking control of you and that pills are the answer to solve everything.
But now there's another solution to solve that problem.
You're an actor without a director (God) and you're being controlled by the media, the world.
You need to let go and allow God inside of you.
You need to let go and let God.
