"Drug Of Choice" as written by and Jesse/vodinh Hasek....
Sex always sells.
Death is a thrill.
Imitate my lack of patience.
How much we pay to be Taylor made.
Fashions fade the trends will change.

Now what is your drug of choice.
Pick your poison and enjoy.
Now what is your drug of choice.
Pick your poison and enjoy.

Disasterpation the thrill of a nation.
Temptation is for sale.
Disasterpation the death of a nation.
Money collect yourself.

Reality scripted TV.
Chasing fifteen minutes of fame.
Fight over fuel.
Violence in school.
The youth our eye's confused as I am.

Now what is your drug of choice.
Pick your poison and enjoy.
Now what is your drug of choice.
Pick your poison and enjoy.

Disasterpation the thrill of a nation.
Temptation is for sale.
Disasterpation the death of a nation.
Money collect yourself.

We're so.
Weak for.
Blaming persuasion.
Now the.
Life's based.
On imitation.
On imitation.
On imitation.

So what is your drug of choice.
Pick your poison and enjoy.

Disasterpation the thrill of a nation.
Temptation is for sale.
Disasterpation the death of a nation.
Money collect yourself.

Disasterpation the thrill of a nation.
Temptation is for sale.
Disasterpation the death of a nation.
Money collect yourself.

    General CommentHahaha.

    "How much we play" should be "how much we pay". "Disasterpation" should be "disasterbation", a play on "masturbation". "Fire over fuel" is "fight over fuel", "violence is cool" is "violence in school", and "you's" isn't even a word. It's "The youth are as confused as I am". "Never life" should be "live a life".

    General CommentMaking the correct version look like this:

    Sex always sells
    Death is a thrill
    Entertain my lack of patience
    How much we pay
    To be tailor made
    Fashion slaves
    The trends will change now

    What is your drug of choice
    Pick your poison and enjoy
    What is your drug of choice
    Pick your poison and enjoy

    Disasterbation the thrill of a nation
    Temptation is for sale
    Disasterbation the death of a nation
    Manipulate Yourself

    Reality, Scripted TV
    Chasing 15 minutes of fame
    Fight over fuel
    Violence in school
    The youth are as confused as I am

    What is your drug of choice
    Pick your poison and enjoy
    What is your drug of choice
    Pick your poison and enjoy

    Disasterbation the thrill of a nation
    Temptation is for sale
    Disasterbation the death of a nation
    Manipulate Yourself

    We're so weak for
    Blaming persuassion
    Live a life based on imitation
    On imitation
    On imitation
    So

    What is your drug of choice
    Pick your poison and enjoy

    Disasterbation the thrill of a nation
    Temptation is for sale
    Disasterbation the death of a nation
    Manipulate Yourself

    Temptation is for sale

    Manipulate Yourself

    Good effort though. :)

    General CommentIt's about our slavery for a substance or addiction to a thing like tv, magazines and etc. It says that everyone is the slave of something and no one does a thing about the real problems of our society because we're slaves !

    Btw disasterbation means:

    Idly fantasizing about possible catastrophes (ecological collapse, full-blown totalitarianism) without considering their likelihood or considering their possible solutions and preventions.

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song, it hit me that it was about different drugs. Upon listening to more of the songs in the Division album, I was certain this actually had to do with different "drugs". Mind me, that I only listened to this song once, hence my early interpretation.
    Anyways, I'm sure of it now, that this song has to deal with the fact that the youth today, along with most adults find a natural high in all the wrong things. Such as the media. Different TV shows, and so forth. Anything that the media has brought in to seduce the youth into watching, or commending the un-natural acts portrayed in the media.

    Fashion slaves;
    The trends with change;

    Easily said. Now, I can't say that I have never followed a trend, and it's easier said that you have. Jesse, has strong words within these lyrics.

    How much we pay;
    To be taylor made;

    Using money to buy happiness, or instant gratification.

    Society today has honestly grown into some selfish bastards. Hopefully in the future things will change. If they do, I feel sorry for our kids who'll look back and see what dumbasses we are, and how we managed to fuck up our generation.

    General Comment"Sex always sells
    Death is a thrill

    Sex is used to sell everything and anything nowadays, it has no limits to what it can be used for or with...Even Disney will go there. We are also infatuated with death as a society, when a celebrity dies or people in general....It's always the headline of news. We are seemingly bored quick and easy like some kind of massive ADD sweeping the nation, everything needs to be faster and harder as we progress. What's "in" now, won't be or even matter soon enough but people just keep chasing the trends.

    "What is your drug of choice
    Pick your poison and enjoy
    What is your drug of choice
    Pick your poison and enjoy"

    Everything that is [resented to us in society is like the form of a drug, we think we need it but we really don't. And everything is like that, so pick one of these bad aspects of society and enjoy it I guess. Like drugs it's a quick fix, and in the end unfulfillable.

    "Reality, Scripted TV
    Chasing 15 minutes of fame
    Fight over fuel
    Violence in school
    The youth are as confused as I am"

    It means pretty much what it say's.

    "Disasterbation the thrill of a nation
    Temptation is for sale
    Disasterbation the death of a nation
    Manipulate Yourself"

    I think Disasterbation means how we feed into it all and indulge ourselves my our own will, we are sold it and we buy into it. Materialism is killing the growth of people, and most of all you're not lloking out for yourself.

    "We're so weak for
    Blaming persuasion
    Live a life based on imitation"

    We should be able to make choice for ourselves, and not let some designed image of what you're supposed to be affect what you want to me. In the end it's your choice, although media plays a huge role in influencing people.

    So all in all I think this song is talking about materialism, and not being yourself while striving to be something your not but are basically told to be by the media.
