"My Medicine" as written by Kato Khandwala, Ben Phillips and Taylor Momsen....
Somebody mixed my medicine
Somebody mixed my medicine

Well you hurt where you sleep and you sleep where you lie
Now you're in deep and now you're gonna cry
Got a woman to your left
And a boy to your right
You start to sweat so
Hold me tight 'cause

Somebody mixed my medicine
I don't know what I'm on
Somebody mixed my medicine
Now baby its all gone
Somebody mixed my medicine
And somebody's in my head again
And somebody mixed my medicine again, again

Well I drink what you leak and I smoke what you sigh
See you cross the room with that look in your eye
Got a man to his left and a girl to his right
You start to sweat so
Hold me tight 'cause

Somebody mixed my medicine
I don't know what I'm on
Somebody mixed my medicine
Now baby its all gone
Somebody mixed my medicine
Somebody's in my head again
And somebody mixed my medicine again, again

There's a tiger in the room and a baby in the closet
Pour another drink mom I don't even want it
Then I turn around and think I see someone that looks like you

Well you hurt where you sleep and you sleep where you lie
Now you're in deep and now you're gonna cry
Got a woman to your left
And a boy to your right
You start to sweat so
Hold me tight 'cause

Somebody mixed my medicine
I don't know what I'm on
Somebody mixed my medicine
Now baby its all gone
Somebody mixed my medicine
Somebody's in my head again again
And somebody mixed my medicine
Again, again, again
Again, again, again
Again, again, again
Somebody mixed my medicine
Somebody mixed my medicine
Somebody mixed my medicine

    General CommentI love this song. It kind of reminds me of The Hangover. Stupid, I know, but some of the lyrics are similiar to the plot of that movie. As for what it means, I don't know, but it's my favorite song of theirs thus far.

    My InterpretationFavorite Pretty Reckless song. Love it. I honestly don't know what the writers vision was (who im guessing is Momsen) because we're not in their head, so all i can do is interpret it..

    "There a tiger in the room and a baby in a closet
    Pour another drink mom i don't even want it"

    I think it could be about an abusive family. The tiger being the father - wild, dangerous etc.
    Baby in the closet is the child, hiding
    Mom's an alcoholic.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a drug, maybe roofies, something leaving you confused and wondering what happened. The drug probably led to sex-"I'll drink what you leak"-and the next mornin she's somehwere she doesn't want to be and realizes that all of last night was a mistake.

    General CommentIt might be drugs, but i'm leaning more towards alchohol. Somebody mixed something in her drink when she wasn't paying attention and she is very confused and starts to see things. That's were the tiger and the baby come in.

    General CommentI would definitely agree with EpicNight13 with it being about alcohol - I just saw The Pretty Reckless live two days ago on the 1st (that's where I first heard their music - I'm definitely a fan now) and she had spoke before this song came on... Saying, "So, who in the audience is drinking tonight? Well, this song goes out to all of you!" and then they played this.

    My InterpretationI think it is about her sexuality maybe? About how shes all mixed up and how she is confused about if she likes girls or not, making her feel unsure. Like when she says ' got a man to his left and a girl to his right' I think it's about how she doesn't know which one to choose...does anybody else see it?

    General CommentI think this song is about alcohol and drug addiction and also about taylor's drink getting spiked and her also taking dangerous drugs! It hints that taylor was probably addicted to drugs at some point in her life so far but I know taylor doesn't anyway! Anyway love the pretty reckless, love taylor momsen and love this awesome song!

    General Commentif you think about this song.. you listen closely and you've ever been addicted to Heroin you pick up the triggers the medicine is the boy the hurting where you lay is waking up sick half the time in the trap house if you pass out you'll be between any one ... the sleeping where you can part is the fact you sleep while you can so your not chasing but yeah i mean you can take lyric's how ever you want for any song . this song actually makes me sad having been there at least on the heroin addiction and seeing the way the world's becoming a heroin epidemic.
