Wombats, The - Anti-D 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

Wombats, The Anti-D Comments
  1. Patrick Böhnert

    The story behind this is heartbreaking

  2. Silvious Brabo

    do half these people have kidney failure the look yellow or is that the antii depressant

  3. Rose Mortem

    I came in here thinking this be a song about being Rh negative!

  4. Darbo Boyle

    this is what i see happening everywhere i go

  5. csyddyj40

    It seems to be that depression is a bad word

  6. Roll it Films

    2019 anyone

  7. CHROMIUM HERO

    dumb lyrics

  8. ☁️

    I remember listening to this when I was 16. Now I’m 23 and starting to take Citalopram. This song came to mind, I finally understand it. It’s so well written

  9. Jamie Grace Wauford

    This song is good but then he sings about throwing out his medication and mentions it was 40 milligrams?!!?? Never ever go cold turkey on any medication without a doctor especially when not when your taking 40 milligrams!!! That is so dangerous

  10. Manas Nerurkar

    Pankhkhkcake lmaooo
    Beautiful song though!

  11. kelsey

    No offense to any of the actors in this they did a great roll at portraying characters but you can tell that they were told by the director “ don’t look at the camera be in the moment” or something like that and during the crowd scene you can see people realizing they looked at the camera by accident ( but they still did a great job and this is an amazing song )

  12. Kemit's Toes

    Who is here because of kovu?

  13. Keshana Davidson

  14. amna

    this song is making me feel things that i’ve never felt before

  15. Kizzy Duffeleer

    Such an underrated beautiful song. I completely understand about the depression people are feeling while there are so many good things going around. It is so much harder than that.

  16. Ellie

    I’m crying, it brought me years back 😭 nostalgic af

  20. frozenchillis

    I first only noticed tord looking at matthew getting beat up
    but then I noticed dan resting on a black car and wearing black clothing
    So that's why I didn't see him
    I hate myself

    RebekahTheBanana

  25. why me

  26. Lisa Mayo

    How I enjoyed working this video! And the song is amazing !

  27. Great Googly Moogly

    I wish I would have known of this song when I "threw away my citalopram" and "cast away with the doctors plans". This describes me so well that I just cry everytime I hear it. Beautiful.

  28. Riley Herbert

  37. Molly G

  45. Ethan John

    Why is he singing with a British accent?

    Anneleen Roesems

    Ethan John Because he is British. He's from Liverpool.

  47. VC Drummer12

    A beautiful piece of great music, made by outstanding musicians.

  48. Terrance Branch

    its hard to smile when your as flat as a c-c-cake. ( my favorite part of this entire beautful,emotional,and extremely relatable song.)

  49. John Galt

    What's the white object at 2:14?

    Dane Luke Wagner

    it's a pen light that doctors carry. (usually used for pupil dilation tests)

  50. Jordan Miller

    what's sad about this song is that it actually shows you what depression is like, everybody is happy around you and having a great time and the your just there feeling emptier and emptier because all you feel is sadness

    skankhunt

    stupid comment

  51. Robbie Mills

    Been listening to this for 6 hours on loop whilst lying on my floor.

    Robbie Mills

    @Pissflaps Magee If it is shit to you then the answer is yes

    Kat Ze

    This could totally be me. Everytime I'm depressed I lie on the floor in my kitchen or I take every pillow and blanket I can find and build a den where I spend the whole day and hiss at everyone who wants to talk to me, build me up or just looks at me. And songs like this make me feel a little bit mor confident in those situations.

    Liana Jaden

    Nothing describes me more than this comment.

    TJG

    It's a great song!

    ulfragnarsson

    You okay bud?

  52. Lucy Womack

    Doctors hate him!

  53. José Marques

    "It's hard to smile when you're as flattened as a pancake

  58. Haku

    So much feels

  59. Ryan Haines

    Very cool how this was all done in one shot!

  60. Alberto Villalobos

    What a good video! I just discovered this band today! Sounds really good also

    joanna a.

    ive been listening to them for almost three years. they are awesome. im glad you're enjoying their music

  61. Lindz J

    cheers me up <3

  62. Vince Adams

    been on Sertraline (Zoloft) for over a year. it's helped tremendously. don't be afraid to get help if you need it. there is no shame in taking care of your mental health..

    Tori Martinez

    Vince Adams I'm starting zoloft today, it took about eight years to seek the help I need

  63. Quinn Daly

    recommend speeding it up to 1.25, sounds so good!

  64. Lydia

    I think the part of the video that got to me most was when Dan and Tord helped Murph into the chair. It felt to me like that was symbolising the help of friends in a time of depression, but maybe it was simply just Dan and Tord wanting to be in the video.

  65. Shamar Lunda

    I like how the doctors were like "no... this is our job".

  66. hinowisaybye

    Am I the only one who thinks he looks like Steven Fry?

    Ceazarius

    Davey's Room

    Every day.

  70. Nynke

  71. Online Radio School

    So "The Cure" influenced...but ..I love this song anyhooo! Wombats and a Red Stripe...What a great way to end an evening! Nighty!

  79. SarcasticInnocence

    2:20 when his band mates helped him up. my heart just melted omg. i love this song so much <3

    James Brittles

    SarcasticInnocence that was the best bit of the song

  80. Emma Fordham

    Also, Citalopram is rubbish and should only really be used for very mild depression anyway...

  81. Emma Fordham

    'Our vivid dreams are just like big production movies' PERFECT lyrics.

  82. Lill Mayers

    Just covered this on my channel, such an amazing song I love this

  83. Chyntia AR

  84. K o p e

    I've just come off mine for the same reasons!

  85. HardCandi

    Thank you.

  86. Rockity Roll

    So addicted right now

  87. CaseFace5

    Something I never thought about when they make these slow motion videos is that the singers lips match the track played over it... do they have to sing in slow motion when filming the video? lol

    Paul Gerald

    Ive always wondered this to but i thought that the video was recorded normal but the song was played faster so when they slowed the whole thing down the video would be slow Mo and the song would then be played at its normal speed.

    if you find out the answer let me know.

    tery

    they actually have to sing faster , so when they put it in slow motion the lip movements will match the lyrics. 
    if you know troye sivan - he once did a 'behind the scenes' of filming a music video and there he said it :D and i guess every musician does it the same way in music videos ^^

    Paul Gerald

    @fionaWhatever Ahhh cool. Cheers!

    Csmithy2100

    watch on 1.75x speed

  88. surfcowboy2

    This video is so fucking genius if you really watch and think about it

  90. Dean Carter

    MrDiache

    I'm in your situation lol

    I Need To BELIEVE

    Hope that your anti-I became a self anti-D with time :)

  91. Molten_

    Oh my god this video is scary, it sounds and looks exactly like how I feel when on antidepressants.

  92. devilsrfun

    This is filmed in the same place as Rella - Hodgy, Domo Genesis And Tyler, The Creator

    Mason Talbot

    Gavin Cain Hurt

    Mason Talbot go look at rella

  93. Wendy Cann

  94. Jonas Lapp

    ich hasse euch alle!!!! <3 

  95. MyMusickitty

    You can be surrounded by as much happiness as their is in the world but it won't stop you feeling as bad as you do inside

    Patrick Böhnert

    This 100% describes depression.

  96. Tracey

    <--- Anti Depressant right here.

  97. Deanish Campbell

    When you can relate to a song that up until now you had no idea what it was on about. kinda cool but not for a good reason :/

  98. Tom Hydra-XavieR

    I was on 50ml of Citalopram, No Good that was, im now on Zoloft :/ its stronger but the diazepam works best, Depression Sucks :(

    Millie Warner

    Tansell Ziggy-Zig I'm on fluoxetine and they refuse to let me change it because they think it's working just fine.

    Tom Hydra-XavieR

    thats not right :( only you alone knows what works and what doesnt, i would suggest seeking a second opinion.

    now for my situation 3 years later: Still depressed and anxious :(

    Millie Warner

    Tansell Ziggy-Zig I'm going to, I desperately need something else.

    Tom Hydra-XavieR

    Im Now on Fluoxetine too 20mg

  99. punctuationgamer636

    I take citalopram like mention in the videoa dn it makes me feel like shit is just happening and now my doctor wants to put me on 40ml :/ but nope nope nope :D I think I got it from here

    Mamma miA

    God save you guys - antidepressants is it such shit and always have side effects!((((((((

    Remember When

    I've had citalopram and sertraline now, but neither can calm the dark abyss that swells within me.
