lyrics

I don’t take it in big numbers
I could get used to this kind of hunger
Everyone deserves a lonesome slumber
So I don’t take it in big numbers

Small doses, little tastes are all I need
Small doses are all it takes to feel the release
And like wilted roses get replaced I’ll wipe my slate clean
Until these small doses get a hold of me

I won’t tell you that I like it
I could get used to this kind of quiet
Maybe I’ll even start to buy it
And I’ll forget how much I like it

Small doses, little tastes are all I need
Small doses are all it takes to feel the release
And like wilted roses get replaced I’ll wipe my slate clean
Until these small doses get a hold

When I get bored like I know I will
I’ll trade this in for a different pill
And you can watch me try to bend, watch me try to break
When my arms get tired of holding these poses
I’ll be the one who exposes that
Small doses might be all that I can take

Small doses, little tastes are all I need
Small doses are all it takes to feel the release
And like wilted roses are replaced I won’t try to get clean
Until these small doses –
I hope they get, I hope they get, I hope they get

These small doses, little tastes are all I need
Small doses are all it takes to feel the release
And like wilted roses get replaced I’ll wipe my slate clean
Until these small doses get a hold of me
