Chemical Brothers, The - The Pills Won't Help You Now Lyrics




Thought we were going
And go up the field a ways
And join all the other living souls
But you never came

Robbed of your fortune
You get disappointments in life
You're probably poisoning your body
I hope you're alright

In a moment of fear
You dig in your heels
The pills won't help you now
Once you're crying

Thought you were going
Go up the field a ways
Join all the other living souls
But you never came

Robbed of your fortune
You get disappointments in life
You're probably poisoning your body
I hope you're alright

In a moment of fear
You dig in your heels
The pills won't help you now
Once you cry

Robbed of your fortune
You get disappointments in life
You're probably poisoning your body
I hope you're alright

In a moment of fear
You dig in your heels
The pills won't help you now
Once you cry

In a moment of fear
You dig in your heels
The pills won't help you now
Once you cry.

    You dig in your heels
    The pills won't help you now
    Once you cry

  14. John Snow

    This is one of those songs that sound like something you remember from tripping when your young the way the music bounces downward like the geometry folding onto itself then rotate, slide down, shift hue then rotate onto itself again

  15. anthony fubelli

    What a blowout song.

  16. jesse bongo

    Love it !!!.

  17. Luke Chapman

  22. Andy C

    Midlake

  23. Derpin Bird

    Fuck that hurts, beautiful but shit ow

  24. Pauline Apilado

    Thank you SO much for sharing this with all of us. This resonates deeply with me too, with my experience of recurring depression and wanting to escape from life with all our "legal pills": food, TV, relationships, overwork, travel, etc. which can be just as dangerous as the illegal, chemically intoxicating ones when taken in large doses...

    Taylor Macdonald

    hey hope everything is ah-oh-kay on your end, this song is truly great isn't it

  25. Leandro L.V.

    At 2:15 . . .

  26. GoodMomo

    I'm upset that the description makes no mention of MIDLAKE, which is the band that sings in this song and made the collab with The Chemical Brothers.

    BitsInBits

    Well it's not the whole band, it's just their former singer-songwriter Tim Smith. I do think it's important to mention though.

  27. I won't read your reply

    I love all kinds of music, but I gotta say this is one of my fave songs of all time (for personal reasons)

  28. Dead Pool

    i cried idk why, song is so touching

  29. Jonathan Wright

    11 years sober here. This song hits me like a sack of bricks.

    Iro Pslam

    pretty sure the chem bro's said it'#s about old people in old folk homes taking medication

    Bogdan Buda

    hang in there.

    hixxy220Muse

    I think there's a few ways you can take this song... Its up to you how to perceive it, beautiful song nonetheless

  30. jesse bongo

    Im 67......this makes me feel like a teenager again .....fucking marvellous !!!.

  31. jesse bongo

    Hypnotic !!!

  32. Brandon Gidai

    This was my sisters favorite song and she died almost a year ago now😩 still cant hear it without crying

  33. Matej Hr

    31 year old,havin Schizophrenia,i hope u all get well g/lads, enjoy your life

    Василий Чернобай

    I hope you'll get well too. Please, don't lost your hope.

  34. Some Guy

    The irony of course, is that this song sounds amazing on painkillers.

    A moment in time I'll never forget. The end of Our care-free youth.

  36. mvvagner

    so heavy, dark, and light at the same time. Waves of emotions unlocked that were lying dormant

  37. Henry Appiah

    Vintage... However, it's a classic.

  38. Adam Long

    omg, this is it, possibly my my fave cb song of all time

  39. OscarDaGenius1

    One great thing my step dad did was introduce me to the Chemical Brothers when he gave me this album

  40. Anaïs Amy Belin

    thanks Skins, now let me cry

  41. spikinsilver

    Esa es mi hija! Zary te quero más que la trucha al trucho! :)***************

  42. Dan Quinn

    was going write something about the previous song then video jumped and I realized I could say the same thing about this song: s'ait.

  43. luridthingsCO

    Chemičtí bratři

  44. Someone

    No, I am not alright

    Al J

    you're not alone ;)

  45. rastaleprecahun

    Had no idea the chemical brothers had this kind of thing in them. Anyone got any tracks similar to this?

    jesse bongo

    Sorry...this is a one-off

    evlntnt1121

    Noisia - Tommy's theme
    Mt Eden - Sierra Leone

    sERen arp

    “Another world”

    Fracmental

    Hold Tight London, Close Your Eyes, Alive Alone, Wide Open, Where do I begin, Asleep from Day, The State We're In, Hanna's Theme (Vocal Version), Radiate.

    Andy Harris

    You can try the Chemical Brothers' remix of Spiritualized's "I Think I'm In Love". "One Too Many Mornings" from the Chems' "Exit Planet Dust", Not the Chems but Orbital's Belfast works well with this.

  46. Cjaraburn

    amazing tune

  47. Sean Reddan

    Chemical Brothers are LEGENDS ! Maybe when they are dead 50 years THE WORLD will realise !

    Halie Symmons

    People are so paranoid of pcp but some of the best music ever was made by a group named after it.

  48. Manuel Blanco

    Love is in the air, this music is remembering to me that.

  49. Brian Cho

    I lost a good friend recently. Long story. Reminds me of my pain of letting go of her. I really hope she is all right. I still pray for her everyday.

    Aidan Spreadbury

    Brian Cho I lost best friend in 2013, we used listen to this song all the time and wonder what is about. Now 3 years later i listen to this song everynight and i get it now. Stay strong.

    Starry Wizdom

    My only child hung himself 4 months ago. We loved listening to ChemiBros. Peace to all the other living souls.

    captain caveman

    hope your alright x

  52. Armando Lopez

    "En un momento de miedo
    buscaste en tus talones
    las píldoras no te ayudaran ahora
    una vez que estés llorando

    Despojado de tu suerte
    conseguiste decepciones en la vida
    probablemente estés envenenando tu cuerpo
    espero que estés bien"

  53. Armando Lopez

    Definitivamente esta gente es increíble........... linda canción

  54. Víctor Manuel Moreno

    Esta canción esta de puta madre!

  55. PeepsILoveEllie

    as someone who only knew The Chemical Brothers from their song Galvanize, I was very, very confused. but in the most positive way :)

    Rich Wade

    They have SO MANY great songs/albums. And believe it or not, Galvanize is sub par for them.

    PeepsILoveEllie

    @MrDrawingattention ok good to know :) thanks.

  56. Valeria Calvi

    that melody make me feel so peaceful.... I crying so sensitive song! Thank you Chemical Brothers

    Dario Haida

    Deep...Deep Song

  57. planetinspiration

    nice and smooth sounds

  58. homerbloodysimpson

    We Are The Night and Further are two of my fave albums ever. I've come back to this because I got frustrated with the stupid black and white CD I'm staring at right now.
    I bought Born In The Echoes because of tracks 1 and 2. The rest of the CD drives my wife and kids crazy. A work colleague thought I was on drugs (little does he know) when I put it on at lunchtime...

    Apart from the whole song (notwithstanding the dirge at the start that makes friends go "wtf?"), the arpeggios make this amazing - and the lyrics of course...

    I'll persist with BITE, but right now I'm off to listen to Daft Punk and old Muse, Underworld and Björk.

    klippklar314

    It isnt that bad. Wide open, go and born in the echoes and eml ritual are great songs. I think its a good thing the chemical brothers always try new things, even if some things are weird.

  59. Finley Lincoln

    What a great song to come down to

  60. Earlyturtle

    3.40ish is the mission.

    brunella russo

  61. Jablička

  62. MIKE Balderree

    missing good friends, and remembering the good acid.

  65. Helawolf

    Nothing wrong with being Scottish my man. I have Scottish heritage myself

    Billy Rigney

    @AviationAddict ola!

  68. Uraanium

    I like CB from the beginning and if they need to make this song, then its a big problem in its frends... I can't speak english..

    Neil Pritchard

    you say you can't speak english in perfect english??   ;)

  69. Abel Salazar

    Great way with the subtitled lyrics, friend, not to mention how good the song is and the uploaded sound quality, have a nice day.
