Lithium is an anti-depressant drug and the verses of the song represent the stages a person goes through while on the drug. "I'm so happy... Cause today I found my friends, they're in my head. I'm so ugly, that's okay cause so are you." And then the end of the song becomes angry, uncontrollable, and blazing with confusion and rage. "I like it I'm not gonna crack. I miss you I'm not gonna crack. I love you I'm not gonna crack! I'd KILL you I'm not gonna crack! "
