Switchfoot - Mess Of Me Lyrics



I am my own affliction
I am my own disease
There ain't no drug that they could sell
Ah, there ain't no drug to make me well
There ain't no drug

There ain't no drug
There ain't no drug
It's not enough
There ain't no drug
The sickness is myself

I've made a mess of me
I wanna get back the rest of me
I've made a mess of me
I wanna spend the rest of my life alive

I've made a mess of me
I wanna get back the rest of me
I've made a mess of me
I wanna spend the rest of my life alive
The rest of my life alive

They lock our souls in cages
We hide inside our shells
It's hard to free the ones you love
Oh, when you can't forgive yourself
Yeah, forgive yourself

There ain't no drug
There ain't no drug
There ain't no drug
The sickness is myself

I've made a mess of me
I wanna get back the rest of me
I've made a mess of me
I wanna spend the rest of my life alive

I've made a mess of me
I wanna reverse this tragedy
I've made a mess of me
I wanna spend the rest of my life alive
The rest of my life alive

Ahhhhooo

There ain't no drug
There ain't no drug
There ain't no drug
No drug to make me well

There ain't no drug
It's not enough
I'm breaking up
The sickness is myself
The sickness is myself

I've made a mess of me
I wanna get back the rest of me
I've made a mess of me
I wanna spend the rest of my life alive

I've made a mess of me
I wanna reverse this tragedy
I've made a mess of me
I wanna spend the rest of my life alive
The rest of my life alive

    I made a mess of me
    I wanna get back the rest of me
    I've made a mess of me
    I wanna spend the rest of my live alive
    The rest of my life alive!

    We lock our souls in cages
    We hide inside our shells
    It's hard to free to the ones you love
    Oh when you can't forgive yourself
    Yeah forgive yourself!

    There ain't no drug
    There ain't no drug

    The sickness is myself

    I made a mess of me
    I wanna get back the rest of me
    I've made a mess of me
    I wanna spend the rest of my life alive
    I've made a mess of me
    I wanna reverse this tragedy
    I've made a mess of me
    I wanna spend the rest of my live alive

  32. james williams

    ..great song.. under rated band

    Brew Bear Brewer

    +james williams exactly. i think the main reason for switchfoot's under rated-ness is because many of their songs deliver hard, solid truth, and this world can't accept/handle it.

    james williams

    ..to save a life movie! ..

  33. wolfko3

    "there ain't no drug that thy could sell".... I always sang it as there ain't no drug or vaccine

  34. Shittum Wood

  35. Shittum Wood

    I'm here to testify that the Mormon church ruined my life. LORD have mercy on all those who helped it along.

    Dear Switchfoot,
    My name is Jonathan Shafe and I am fifteen years old. I discovered your music just recently and fell in love with it. For the first time I heard interesting original melodies and honest lyrics from a Christian perspective--something I had been searching for, for a long time. For awhile now I have been interested in the music industry but have been unable to find any helpful information concerning it. My parents are missionaries in West Africa and I can appreciate so much what you sing about, from my own experiences and life. Music has an effect on people in way that I will never be able to completely understand. I know this is a lot to ask, but could you answer the following questions?

    1. How long has your occupation been that of a musical artist?
    2. What other occupations have you worked in previously?
    3.Do you primarily work with people, things, or ideas?
    4. What do you like most about your job?
    5. How did you get started as a musical artist?
    6. What personal qualities do you feel are needed to succeed as an artist?
    7. What type of training is needed for this occupation today?
    8. What changes in your job (music-industry-wise) have you seen occur?
    9. What are the most frequently recurring problems on your job?
    10. Do you have any long-term career goals?
    11. Does your job require primarily independent activity or is there a lot of teamwork?
    12. Who evaluates your performance and how does that actually take place?
    13. Can experience be substituted for formal education credentials?
    14. What would you say are the rewards of your position?
    15. What hours do you usually work as an artist? Do you find you have free time or is there always a deadline and no flexibility?
    16. What types of opportunities for growth and advancement are there as an artist?
    17. What would you say is your least favorite thing about being a musical artist?
    18. What advise would you give to a person who feels like a career as an artist is what God made them to do, but doesn't know how they should pursue it?

    I appreciate you taking the time to answer this questions very much and just know that it means a lot to me. Keep seeking God and don't ever give up! Know that it's worth the pain and the struggle you touch more lives than you could ever imagine.
    Sincerely,
    Jonathan

    Eric Drudge

    +JJ.e Efahs No Problem. I'm glad i could help.

    walk short

    Let go of the Christian part of your search, youd find way better stuff than switchfoot. But if you cant try underoath, way better Christian band
