"Pillmatic" as written by Matthew Mcginley and Travis Mccoy....
(chorus)
Pillmatic breezing these down I'm poundin honey grounds
I'm pillmatic the oxycontin got my stomach rottin
Pillmatic I swear to God I'm not an addict
But I'm still at it, dang nabbit I'm pillmatic

Thinking back on when it all started
I found pink hearts in mommy's little pocket book
And took em
Poppin when she wasn't looking
I guess it runs in the family
I'm liable to eat any pill you randomly hand me
Save the greenery
I'm looking for them labels reading
may cause drowsiness be careful when operating machinery
beautiful pharmaceuticals
residue in my cuticles
sniffin them with a suitable
wishin they made em chewable

catch me in the source with five pills next to my name
like fuck five mics I want five vic fame
if killing pain is the name of the game
then I'm your number one draft pick
dash quick to the closest medicine cabinet
kill the whole bottle
never played the role model position
I'm just livin
so take 2 of these and call me in the morning
ima take 4 and finish this 40 'cause lifes boring
(chorus)

Keep the hydro unless its got codone behind it
Never have to roam far from home to find it
Writin fake scripts like my doctor signed it
Till I spelled his last name wrong
This ain't a song for the kids like the last album
Put em to bed go ahead and turn the valuum up
A couple meds to ease the pain of the papercuts
The doctor says slow down maybe later buts
40 milligrams, a 40 and I'm faded
This world is crazy so I stay medicated
Percocet, ativan, and colonapin
When my social lights are out
They turn them on again
I need em till I'm bored again
Oxycontin on juice on gin
Equals projectile wild style burner on a porcelain

(chorus)

    ..I believe those are the correct lyrics.

    One of my favorite songs, I had abused pills for so long before I heard this song.

    "I'ma take 4 and finish this 40 cause life's boring."-exactly why I started taking them in the first place.

    But don't let them fool you, like they would ever pass up weed. Or so that's what Ive heard from friends. I've had the pleasure of meeting them a few times, even got to smoke with then once, which made my life.

    It wasn't until this album though that I realized how grand their music was.

    General CommentHaha do love gym class heroes

    Random fact tho when I was a lil "pill head" the ones we got where pink hearts.

    Really clever song, specially the scienctific information he gives about the affects it has on your stomache.

    General Commentactually i'm with sushipaper, that rly doesnt make to much sense...but yeah...pills and weed are two different things anyways, it's not like they are saying they are sxe in this song or anything, trav is just talking about his old addiction. so i wouldn't say they are trying to fool us much. but, srsly this song means alot to me. i use to be addicted pills too until i passed out and went into a seizure about three weeks ago cause i took to much adderal and it fucked with my brain. These are probably my favorite lines from the song, hell if i don't relate =/

    "Ima take 4 and finish this 40 cuz life's boring"

    "40 milligrams, a 40 and I'm faded
    This world is crazy so I stay medicated"

    "I swear to God I'm not an addict,
    But I'm still at it, dag nabbit I'm pillmatic."

    I never really realized I was addicted either until then
