"Medication" as written by and Gnecco....
Wake me up wise by morning
I want to breathe the day
This is my final warning
Keep all the clouds away

We've taken medication
So we can run away from
Another day

I'm feeling like I'm falling
We danced until the morning closed our eyes
I would love to stay here and never have to go
And no one in the world would ever know

We've taken medication
So we can run away from
Another day

We will never know
I feel the dream is real and watch it go
I blink and then another day is gone
I feel the dream that we've been hiding from

We've taken medication
So we can run away from
The things that pain us
The pain

    General CommentI agree with Miseryhead but I wouldn't really place a finger on what kind of drugs because I always kind of took it as medication as in like anti-depressants and such. I think for some people it really can be illegal things but for me its not.

    General Commentno i disagree. you're all wrong. the medication is obviously not supposed to be taken litterally! its a symbol of how patterns of life (eat, sleep, love, education, duties, ect...) repeat every day and make us feel real-"I feel alive...", but we're all just the same, following the illusion of life, and jimmy gneco feels separated from the rest of the world because of he wants us not to feel dependant on this "medication" of life, because he sees it as just an illusion of falsehoods. we chose this illusion to not go insane from the suffering of life-"we've taken medication, so we can run away from, the things that pain us...". now i maybe looking too deep into this song, but i know one thing, i've read commentary on some of his works before, and i know its more deep than you're guys' theories.

    General Commenti think this song is meant to be an aspect of life, love, saying good-bye to the things you love.

    General CommentI think that this song is about control. the medication controls a person and the person is trying to get away from the control.
