"Medication" as written by Neil Boshart, Shane Told, Paul Koehler, Josh Bradford and William Hamilton....
We'll keep calm and carry on
With good intentions
They'll prescribe the rights and wrongs
Until we're perfect
So maybe one day we'll be safe
In control and full of grace
Never making a mistake
So flawless

Cut us deeper to the core
We won't feel a thing
Imperfections weighing more
Repressing difference

I wish this wasn't all so hard
To be yourself and not on guard
To stop the racing in your heart
We'll fight it

Put me under
Now I'm powerless
Take it all
Take it all
Take it
I can't breathe without you

You won't trust me
I won't trust you too
Bring me back and
Bring me back and
Bring it
Medicate me

Hide me deeper in my shed
Until I'm all alone
I'm hearing voices in this sound
Hallucinating
I could have sworn I heard it too
A sudden, beautiful adieu
It's telling me what I should do
I follow

Put me under
Now I'm powerless
Take it all
Take it all
Take it
I can't breathe without you

You won't trust me
I won't trust you too
Bring me back and
Bring me back and
Bring it
Medicate me now

As I'm turning into dis-reflection
You can't slow me
My body and my mind
My emotions and my pride

The simplest things became the hardest part now
The easiest parts have taken all my dreams
I'm afraid
I'll never be okay
I'm afraid
I'm scared I can't be happy
I'm afraid

This silence you feel is not a way to be sincere (I'm afraid)
And it's a way to cope
A way to heal (I'm scared I can't be happy)
But not for me when I can't feel (I'm afraid)
The subtleties that make me want to (I'll never be okay)
Be alive and not a statue (I'm afraid)
Breathe the air
Be here to talk to (I'm scared I can't be happy)
I'm afraid (I'll never be the same)

    General CommentSometimes inspiration can come from anywhere. I was sitting around my girlfriend's house while she was at work, trying to come up with some ideas for a song. I've never really suffered from any kind of writer's block, but on this day, I felt I was getting close. After staring around the room for a while, I noticed a poster on her wall that said, “Keep Calm and Carry On.” That got me thinking about depression, mental illness and how deeply people can become affected by it. Some people take drugs to cope, and it helps; other people are worse off. The song is about that.

    General CommentWe'll keep calm and carry on with good intentions.
    They'll prescribe the rights and wrongs until we're perfect.
    So maybe one day we'll be safe, in control and full of grace,
    Never making a mistake, so flawless

    Cut us deeper to the core, we won't feel a thing.
    Imperfections we ignore, embrace indifference
    I wish this wasn't all so hard, to be yourself and not on guard,
    To stop the racing in your heart, we'll fight it.

    Put me under now I'm powerless
    I'll take it all, I'll take it all, I'll take it.
    I can't breathe without you.
    You won't trust me, I won't trust you too.
    You bring me back, you bring me back, you bring me,
    Medicate me

    Hide me deeper in my shell until I'm all alone.
    I'm hearing voices in this cell, hallucinating.
    I could have sworn I heard it too, a sad and beautiful adieu.
    It's telling me what I should do, I follow.

    Put me under now I'm powerless
    I'll take it all, I'll take it all, I'll take it.
    I can't breathe without you.
    You won't trust me, I won't trust you too.
    You bring me back, you bring me back, you bring me,
    Medicate me now.

    As I'm turning into this reflection you control me,
    My body and my mind, my emotions and my pride.

    The simplest things became the hardest part now.
    The easiest parts have taken all my dreams.
    I'm afraid I'll never be okay. I'm scared I can't be happy.

    This silence of fear, is not a way to be sincere,
    And it's a way to cope, a way to deal, but not for me when I can't feel,
    The subtleties that make me want to, be alive and not a statue,
    Breathe the air, be here to talk to, I'm afraid I'll never be the same.
