"Pills, Demons, Etc." as written by Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, David G Kushner, Scott Richard Weiland and Mathew William Sorum....
You, you got skills, you got the pills, you're getting older
You got the weight of all that's left you on your shoulder
But the world still waits for you
Throw yourself right through me

You got your demons and your wasted life
You could pull the trigger and
You'd end the strife

Yeah, I got the news, you had the blues, you bought the ticket
To the one place that I won't be going to visit
What the fuck were you thinking of?
Now I stare right through you

You got your demons and your wasted life
You could pull the trigger and
You'd end the strife
You got your demons and your fancy wine
It would go down easy if you'd
Spend the night

You got your demons and your wasted life
You could pull the trigger and
You'd end the strife
You got your demons and your fancy wine
It would go down easy if you'd
Spend the night
Spend the night

    General CommentI think Scott wrote this song about himself. He went through a hard time with his drug addiction and his divorce.

    General CommentThis song, as well as "For A Brother" are about Scott and Matt's brothers, who both died of drug overdoses during the making of the album.
    Also, it's "Spend the night," not "Spread the line."

    General Comment...and while we're at it, is it "Throw yourself right through it" or "Though you sail right through it"? And I thought it was "You've got your demons and your ways of life"...but now I hear it both ways. Dammit.

    General CommentSurely a call-out song to drug abusers. Something that Scott and the others know about all too well.

    General CommentAnybody knows the name of the groovy 70's guitar technique played by Slash?
