"All Medicated Geniuses" as written by and Nicholas Dewitt Jason Clark....
There's the kid with the golden arm
He admits to the forest fire
That he started up from a lack of
Something better going on
Tell your friends it's a four alarm
Just a smoke screen, we're all liars
Better to stew in discontent
That to admit we're wrong

All motivations out to see
Our ideas die so quickly

This town has good hearts
Bad blood, emotional scars
Never getting to say
What you really want to say

We all lie so well

If misery loves company
And you seem to sleep
So much more soundly
To the song of other people's

Doctor, do you have a remedy?
This is not alright by me
Do you think that you have the trick?
For a city that's so spent and sick?

We all lie so well

    General CommentI think this is another song about drug use, and how it destroys people.

    Like she says how he is doing drugs (frank sinatra reference) because he has nothing better to do, and how the whole city just is messed up because of the background the people come from.
    Yet no one wants to get involved when they see it because they either dont want to get involved or they love to gossip about it.
    And she just wants to know how to fix it, but she knows she is just going to ignore it like everyone else because she says "we all lie so well" as in she will lie and not get involved too and in a sence she is also gossiping about it because she made a song about it. But she gives the feeling like she feels guilty about it...

    General Commentmisshopestar, i think you're right about the meaning of the song.. it's something like this city can't be fixed and the boy, with the drug problem(or so we conclude), in the beginning set a fire because tehre was nothing better going on.. yeah.
