"Prescription" as written by and James Euringer....
[Jimmy, L:]
Doctor

[Jimmy, R:]
Patient

I'm the doctor, I'm the patient
Don't forget that, it's important
If ya love me, like I love me
Everybody will be sorry

[Bridge]
Well I don't need nothin' before the show
I don't need nothin', well that's not so
I need something before the show
Just a little something to make me Go!

[Chorus]
Wow Woah oh
Ya know what I want?
Wow Woah oh
Ya know what I want?
Make it stop [Repeat x2]
Pretty please, a prescription
Make it stop [Repeat x2]
Pretty please, a prescription

I don't need no one screwin' up my fun
Over the counter, fill that prescription
I don't need no one screwin' up my fun
Over the counter, fill that prescription

I'm the doctor, I'm the patient
Don't forget that, it's important
If ya love me, like I love me
Everybody will be sorry

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

I don't need no one screwin' up my fun
Over the counter, fill that prescription
I don't need no one screwin' up my fun
Turn down the bass and fill that prescription

I don't need nothin' before the show
I don't need nothin', no that's not so
I don't need nothin' before the show
I don't need nothin', no that's not so
I don't need nothin' before the show
I don't need nothin' but that's not so
I need something before the show
Just a little something to make me Go!

[Chorus]

    General CommentPerhaps,...
    So many people want what should be an unnecessary boost. Here it seems a relationship has developed between the entertainer and his crowd.
    Doctor prescribing treatment----music
    patient receiving his treatment from the audience.

    This album is amazing.

    General CommentThis song criticizes the blatant abuse of drugs in the entertainment industry and how the artist end up demanding that they have and it destroys them and their careers.

    General CommentI think it's about the obvious drugs in the music industry, but I wouldn't say it's a criticism. It's just he seems to take drugs himself, and I don't think he's aiming at being hypocritical here; it's just commenting on the issue.

    General CommentEither drug prescription abuse or abuse of the crowd growing more and more hungry for "the bass." Kinda experience that with music I learn easily. One day it's all I can think about during AP exams, lunch, etc., and the next day I'm habituated to it and need more. MSI is my anti-drug.

    General Comment"Well I don't need nothin' before the show
    I don't need nothin', well that's not so
    I need something before the show
    Just a little something to make me GOOOOO"

    This seems like the progression of drug use - where the user starts out saying, "I don't need anything," progessing along, until eventually, he's dependent on the drug.

    General CommentIts not about drugs, or the 'rush from the crowd'. Its about masturbation. The first three lines make it pretty clear.

    "I'm the doctor, I'm the patient"
    He's giving himself the 'prescription'

    "Don't forget that, it's important"
    Literally.

    "If ya love me, like I love me"
    Like he loves himself.

    General CommentLOL

    as funny as that is, it still fits crowd rush

    he gives the music to the crowd and by doing so receives a rush, doctor/patient

    its important, well it being litterally important doesnt mean its litterally important to YOUR point....

    If the crowd loves his music as much as he loves his music, then the drug cycle begins. he gets to play the doctor and patient and everyone will be sorry

    (i still think its just about straight up drugs)
