"Paranoia" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
Chew the pill that tastes like hell, but gives you strength
Embrace the drug that makes you mad, cause still it turns you into something else
Feel the need for love grow stronger
Swap your mind for a mirror-search, and shake until the break of day

One day you'll realize that you were wrong
And you'll regret that all this happened
Did it happen?
Some day you'll realize that you were wrong
Left with paranoia as your only friend

Your mind is full of enemies, the room is full of energies
That want to take control
They're all around you, and you're all alone
Your mind is full of enemies, the room is full of energies
Haunting your soul
They're all around you, and you're on your own

One day you'll realize that you were wrong
You'll regret that all this happened
Some day you'll realize that you were wrong
To be left with paranoia

    General CommentI think you're being too literal. I think that Paranoia itself is "the pill that tastes like hell, but gives you strength." I should know, everyone tells me I'm paranoid. ;-)

    General CommentI always thought it was a warning against the adverse affects of extasy. Being a techno artist, Stephan is no doubt exposed to use of Extasy on a regular basis. The real hint here is "Feel the need for love grow stronger." That's one of the key affects of X. The point of the song is that if you keep using X, it'll use up all your serotonin and rob you of your ability to be happy. Then you're left with only paranioa.

    General CommentI agree with Syrinx. X is often sold in the form of a pill. Also, "Someday you'll realize that you were wrong, you'll be left with paranoia as your only friend" is a big hint on the seratonin dependancy that is associated with prolonged ecstacy use.

    General Commentthe song from the beginning to the end is VERY open and it's 100% about ecstasy.
    Every line indicates somethin about it.
    No need to look for any hints.
    The only word missing there is ecstasy after all.
    There is no need to think or make any more comments about it.

    General Commentno it might be about adulterated ecstacy pills but I think in actuality the song has to do with amphetamines, meth, ritalin, or any form of strong CNS stimulation without psychedelic or too pronounced empathogenic effect.
    I bet a lot would disagree but it really can cause a huge increase in the feeling of control over ones life and overall confidence. I think these drugs only give positive effects like this to some and they are also a hard drug to get into, as in respect fully. many are only anxious when they take it and some don't even feel it. but to some people, particularly very emotional people(as in they have a wide range and aren't that *in control* of them)-not emo fans lol, these people are usually bipolar or depressed and see it as an escape and a way to normalize one's feelings, and these types of people often make music as well.
    plus, amphetamines and paranoia are linked with a steel chain.
    but then again so are e-pills with speed in them ;P
