"Welcome To The Fold" as written by and Richard Michael Patrick....
You take my money
You take your drink
You think it's funny
And I hit your face

You got your Jesus
And I got my space
You got your reasons
And I got my case

Just got to sit your self down
To contemplate
Get yourself a nice cold beer
And drink yourself away
Celebrate nothing
You feel a-okay
You celebrate nothing
To feel a-okay

You think you're precious
I think you're shit
I kill father
Destroy his seed
I'm nothing rolled over
Destroy your dream

Just got to sit your self down
To contemplate
Get yourself a nice cold beer
And drink yourself away
You celebrate nothing
You feel a-okay
You celebrate nothing
To feel a-okay

Now when you break yourself down
Go this place
You give yourself no reason
To get off your case
And when you break it down again
Seen through this shit
You give yourself no reason
To live, through this

Mama give, me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine
The one that makes me feel taller
Mama give me my medicine
Mama give me my medicine,
The one that makes me feel so tall, tall
Like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That make me feel like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That make me feel like a tall tree
Mama give me my medicine
That make me feel like a tall tree

You celebrate nothing
You feel a-okay
You celebrate nothing
And you, feel a-okay

    General CommentThe first verses of this song seem to be lashing out at somebody, just hating them, and encouraging them to become an alcoholic. The line "You got your Jesus and I got my space, you got your reasons and I got my case" is similar to some of the lyrics from Dose. The lyrics then seem to detail the person having a mental breakdown, and becoming addicted to a drug of some kind.

    General Commentthe second line is supposed to be 'And think you're great". It does have similarities to Dose, and I think it's Richard attacking religion, and saying it offers as much comfort (and side effects) as alcoholism.

    General CommentIt sounds like he is making fun of religion, but I will not argue the "chick hit by bottle" comments.

    General Comment"You've got your Jesus
    And I've got my space"

    to me this seems like a contrast between religion and science
    I think this whole song is about not thinking for yourself,people that go along with societies rules without ever asking why? Religious people are a perfect example of believing in something without knowing why, science is the quest for knowlege.

    "You get yourself
    A nice cold beer
    And drink yourself away
    You're celebrating nothing"

    an example of typical mindless behavior

    General CommentBasically, this song is about hating your own self.

    "I was a wandering sheep,
    I did not love the fold;
    I did not love my Shepherd's voice,
    I would not be controlled.
    I was a wayward child,
    I did not love my Home;
    I did not love my Father's voice..."

    General CommentI think there's a very sarcastic tone governing the chorus. He's not really propogating drinkiking, he's saying that it's a waste to be drinking to try and ignore inner problems.

    Then he relates this to the way we just take a pill to bury ourselves of our problems, instead of dealing with them (give me my medecine)!

    Ultimately, I think he is talking to himself, arguing with another part of himself.
