"Promoter (of Earthbound Causes)" as written by and Neil Fallon Richard Timothy Sult....
Warmed up my motor, swindled the promoter
Took a lunatic for a ride
And a little voice said inside my head
Rosemary baby, I got the thyme

Suffering madness and the Pharoah's plague
I, Akhenaten tell you some other day
No thank you, that's enough for me
A little bit of Ritalin goes a long way

Ready to rock if you want to roll
Please step away from the vehicle
Ragnarock and revolutionize
Gimme just a minute while I clarify

Cooled down my temper, tried to remember
What it was I wasn't to lose
And I probably could were it not for
The beer and the broads and the broads and the booze.

Hooked on stupid, and the whole shebang
I never have ever felt the same
No thank you, that's enough for me
That's prozacly not what I need

Ready to rock if you want to roll
Please step away from the vehicle
Ragnarock and revolutionize
Gimme just a minute while I clarify

    General CommentThere's plenty of fun little plays on words here that are quite groovy.

    The song seems to be about medicating your troubles away. The reffrences to Ritalin and Prozac are the main things that brought me to this idea. This line:

    "Cooled down my temper, tried to remember
    What it was I wasn’t to lose
    And I probably could were it not for
    The beer and the broads and the broads and the booze."

    Seems to suggest that he's still trying to hold onto what he is, but has drank that bit away too.

    So it's not just medicating your problems away the way that is pushed on people via mental disorder correcting persciptions, but also the way that people try to drink and fuck their problems out of their heads.

    General CommentI agree with SlightlyShinobi, but think that the song is also about how we use drugs to both cause and cure insanity.

    Funny creatures, us humans.
