"Medicine" as written by Ryan Miller, Adam S. Gardner and Brian A. Rosenworcel....
Into the maze
Enter the medicine handed down.
Within these veins
Bleeding with apathy till it drowns.

Am I your charity
For you to look so kind?
But your aim is not quite clear,
It's better if you leave in quiet.

Is this mood frightening?
And who are you sometimes?
Don't try and rescue me,
Go save someone else,
I'm far too gone.

Into the maze
Enter the medicine handed down.
Within these veins
Bleeding with apathy till it drowns.

No more to gain
Needing the ugliness that surrounds
Return again
Caught in the medicine handed down

Gasping, calling
I saw
I'm all alone
Grasping, crawling,
Is this not what you had planned?

Oh
I'm all alone.
Go on hero.
You're faking no one, not today

Stop this you're scaring me
Don't even know you now
Trying to rescue me
Go save someone else
I'm way past gone.

Into the maze
Enter the medicine handed down
Within these veins
Bleeding with apathy till it drowns

No more to gain
Needing the ugliness that surrounds
Return again
Caught in the medicine handed down

Into the maze
Enter the medicine handed down
Within these veins
Bleeding with apathy till it drowns

Oh
I'm all alone.
Go on hero.
You're faking no one, not today

    General Commenti have a feeling this song probably IS about drugs. this entire album seems drug-infused. however, i like to think this song is about euthanasia. don't laugh at me. someone who wants to die because they're too sick to carry on with life or care about it. what do you think?

    General Commentcould very well be - though i think euthanasia is getting, perhaps, too specific. the words describe a very close friend of mine perfectly - he refuses to talk to me anymore, refuses anyone's help, dismisses concern... claims "he doesn't matter," etc. he's not physically sick... or killing himself... but this song describes him. it seems to be depression and drugs. some combination... i don't know.

    General CommentI think this song is referring to a friend who puts on an act and needs attention and tries to get it by acting suicidal. I agree that its about drugs, and this is what started the friend into depression. "Stop this your scaring me, dont even know you now"

    General CommentI think it's really creative to take "gasping, calling" and add the r sound for "grasping, crawling".

    General Commentgreat song, im confused about it thought, what point of view is the song from? the person thats on drugs(medicine) or a friend, he says go gave someone else im far too gone, but then in another part he says stop this your scaring me and who are you sometimes as if a friend is takin the drugs
    or is he just talkin to himself?

    General Commentyeah, good call on the attention-needing. "you're faking no one."

    i believe this song falls into the category of hard-to-figure-out-because-there-is-more-than-one-speaker.

    General CommentHow about something like...

    Speaker 1:
    Into the maze/Enter the medicine handed down
    Speaker 2:Within these veins /Bleeding with apathy till it drowns /No more to gain /Needing the ugliness that surrounds /Return again
    Speaker 1: Caught in the medicine handed down
    Speaker 2:Am I your charity? / For you to look so kind? / But your aim is not quite clear / It’s better if you leave in quiet / Is this mood frightening? / And who are you sometimes? / Don’t try and rescue me / Go save someone else / I’m far past done
    Speaker 1 (knowingly): Gasping, calling
    Speaker 2: I saw I’m all alone
    Speaker 1 (more sure): Grasping, crawling / Is this not what you had planned?
    Speaker 2: Oh I’m all alone / Go on hero
    Speaker 1 (upset): You’re faking no one, not today /Stop this you’re scaring me /Don’t even know you now
    Speaker 2: Trying to rescue me / Go save someone else / I’m way past gone / Into the maze

    I agree with what's been said... and my breakdown may seem corny but it makes sense.

    General Commenti think this song is about someone whose been hurt or is depressed and they don't want to trust anyone.
    (from the point of view of the person who can't trust anyone.)
