Just Like a Pill


Just Like a Pill ( German "Like a Pill ") is a Rock-/Popsong from 2001 by the American singer Pink wrote with Dallas Austin. The song won a gold record in Austria.


The lyrics describe from the first-person view of the consequences of overdose: ("I think I took too much" - I think I 've taken too much). The song text is considered to be autobiographical, because the singer reported in interviews of their drug abuse. On Thanksgiving 1995, before the start of her career, there was an overdose.

"That's part of who I am but I'm not as self -destructive as I used to be. I've done it so I'm not curious about it. "

"That's a part of me, but I 'm not as self-destructive as ever. I've done it, so I 'm not curious about it. "

Said the lyrics analgesic ("I can not stay on your morphine, cuz its making me itch " - I can not stay with your morphine, because it gives me itch) is also used as a metaphor for false expectations in a relationship, if the singer turns directly to a person ( " And I swear you're just like a pill / Instead of makin ' me better, you keep makin ' me ill" - And I swear, you 're just like a pill / Instead it I feel better, you make me ill just continue ).


Produced by Dallas Austin song was coupled out on 10 June 2002 as a single. The later film director Francis Lawrence realized a music video for the song. This is according to Get the Party Started and Do not Let Me Get Me is the third single from her album Missundaztood. The song is 3:57 minutes long.
