The pills that I've been taking confuse me

Do you know someone diagnosed with ADD or ADHD? Do you know of a child that struggles in school, under the guise of having this "disorder"? Are you and adult, like me, that struggles with these symptoms... resulting only in confusion and unhappiness? Read on...

"The use of antipsychotic medication in children has increased fivefold between 1995 and 2002. More than 2.5 million children are now taking these medications, and many children are taking multiple drugs at one time.

The symptoms of ADHD are strikingly similar to indications that a child is gifted, and bored in an unchallenging classroom."

From Dr. Ron Paul's 1 october issue of "Texas Straight Talk" (see more Ron Paul: www.pauljensen.net/ronpaul)

Porcupine Tree's latest album, "Fear Of A Blank Planet" addresses this same concern... check out the music video and lyrics below:




Sunlight coming through the haze
Don't try engaging me
The vaguest of shrugs
The prescription drugs
You'll never find a person inside

How can I be sure I'm here?
The pills that I've been taking confuse me
I need to know that someone sees that
There's nothing left, I simply am not here

In school I don't concentrate
And sex is kinda fun, but just another one
Of all the empty ways of using up the day

How can I be sure I'm here?
The pills that I've been taking confuse me
I need to know that someone sees that
There's nothing left, I simply am not here

Bipolar disorder
Can't deal with this boredom
Bipolar disorder
Can't deal with this boredom

You don't try to be liked
You don't mind
You feel no sun
You steal a gun
To kill time
