"Medicine" as written by and Brian Joseph Burton James Russell Mercer....
This ordinary room is turning
Into something of a prison, oh
And the only thing we know for certain
Is that don't nobody know

You think all of this is real
That's why you never try
To get it down or will it up
It's a shame

Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
Hoo, haha, hoo, haha

Not another lonely evening
When you stay you're not counting omens
When the morning isn't so disturbing actually
Just won't let it go

You think cutting gives you license (license)
To do anything at all (anything)
But you got to take your medicine (medicine)
To allow your hands to lose that grip and let it fall

Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
Hoo, haha, hoo, haha

It's a wonder anyone can breathe you
With a smoke too thick to cough
So we fallin' as we run for cover
From the bombs we're setting off

You think cutting gives you license (license)
To do anything at all (anything)
But you got to take your medicine (medicine)
To allow your hands to lose that grip and let it fall

Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
Hoo, haha, hoo, haha (allow your hands to lose that grip and let it fall)

So we watch another good day fading
How we gonna leave the hangman hanging
Girl, one day you know it all melts in your breath

Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
Hoo, haha, hoo, haha

Hoo, haha, hoo, haha

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who's severely depressed (she cuts herself). She's being told to take the antidepressants she's been refusing.
