"Medication" as written by and Jones....
Who am I trying to fool
As the night falls upon me
Who am I trying to be
When this leads to nothing

I need some medication
I need your medication
These choices I've been making
They make me hate myself

Are you there?
How I long to be with you
Are you there?
Listening to my despair

Standing right at the shore
Knowing life is so much more
I said what she wanted to hear
Pretending that my mind was clear
It's a lie

How you wept, how you tried
But I never make the time
Here I go once again
Will this ever end?

I need some medication
I need your medication
These choices I've been making
They make me hate myself

Are you there?
How I long to be with you
Are you there?
Listening to my despair

Standing right at the shore
Knowing life is so much more
Said what she wanted to hear
Pretending that my mind was clear

Don't make the call
Into the room
It's where I fall

Standing right at the shore
Knowing life is so much more
I said what she wanted to hear
Pretending that my mind was clear
Lying, trying to stop this time
I'll stop this time
One step backward chasing after
A voice inside, A voice inside
That knows

    General CommentWow..this band deserves so much more credit than they receive...I would love to fly out to Cali and see them sometime...heck their even Tower Record's band of the month or somethin like that. Anyway, I think this song is about reaching out for something or someone (the "medication") because the narrator is not happy with the person he is becoming. Maybe he is reaching out to God, or a friend to help him. "How you wept, how you tried." That line makes me think that his friend has tried desperately to help him overcome this problem he is facing, and now, he realizes that he never made time to help himself and he knows he needs that friend.
