    This is a cover of the song Doctor Blind originally written by Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton (Canadian indie rock singer-songwriter known for her involvement in Metric and Broken Social Scene). It is performed by myself and my partner Em. This haunting coronach is a reflection on chemical oblivion as an institutionalised response to social disquiet and existential angst .

    Lyrics

    The lack of light
    Hollow sea
    Poison beaches
    Limousines
    Toothless dentists
    Cops that kill

    My baby’s got the lonesome lows
    Don’t quite go away overnight
    Doctor blind just prescribe
    The blue ones

    If the dizzying highs
    Don’t subside overnight
    Doctor blind just prescribe
    The red ones

    Hard to hold
    Cold to touch
    Fall to pieces
    Treat the rush in hindsight
    With prime time talk

    All your pain
    Will end here
    Let the doctor
    Soothe your brain, dear

    My baby’s got the lonesome lows
    Don’t quite go away overnight
    Doctor blind just prescribe
    The blue ones

    If the dizzying highs
    Don’t subside overnight
    Doctor blind just prescribe
    The red ones
