Truth Drug

From The Elvis Costello Wiki

I've been taking the truth drug
I've been telling a friend
It's all right
I've been up all night

I've been taking the lid off
I've been telling a friend
Like it is
In the mood to fizz

Rushing here and there
Talking everywhere
I'll see everything
'Cause I don't care
Hands are getting wet
Drugs are feeling warm
I'm a modern boy
In the whole light of dawn
On the truth drug
On the truth drug baby

I've been taking the truth drug
I've been telling a friend
It's wonderful
Like an animal

I've been taking the truth drug
I've been telling a friend
It's all right
I've been up all night
