  • Wake up to a cloudy day
    Dark rolls in and it starts to rain
    Staring out to the cage-like walls
    Time goes by and the shadows crawl
    Crushin' candy crushin' pills
    Got no job, mom pays my bills
    Textin' ex's get my fill
    Sweatin' bullets, Netflix-chills
    World's out there singin' the blues
    Twenty more dead on the evening news
    Think to myself "really, what's the use?"
    I'm just like you, I was born to lose

    Why oh why can't you just fix me?
    When all I want's to feel numb
    But the medication's all done
    Why oh why does God hate me?
    When all I want's to get high
    And forget this so-called life

    I am so frickin' bored
    Nothin' to do today
    I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)
    I am so frickin' bored
    Nothing to do today
    I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)

    Can't wait to feel better than I ever will
    Attack that shit like a kid on Benadryl
    Chase it down with a hopeful smile
    Hate myself, if I can go for miles
    They say family's all you need
    Someone to trust can help you breathe
    Inhale that drug, but you start to choke
    You follow the outs of an inside joke

    Why oh why can't you just fix me?
    When all I want's to feel numb
    But the medication's all done
    Why oh why does God hate me?
    Cause I've seen enough of it, heard enough of it, felt enough of it
    Had enough of it!

    I am so frickin' bored
    Nothing to do today
    I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)
    I am so frickin' bored
    Nothing to do today
    I guess I'll sit around and medicate

    Medicate
    Medicate
    Medicate
    Medicate

    Superman is a hero
    But only when his mind is clear though
    He needs that fix like the rest of us
    So he's got no fear when he saves that bus
    All the stars in the Hollywood Hills
    Snapchat live while they pop them pills
    All those flavors of the rainbow
    Too bad that shit don't work though

    Your friends are high right now
    Your parents are high right now
    That hot chick's high right now
    That cop is high right now
    The president's high right now
    Your priest is high right now
    Everyone's high as fuck right now
    And no one's ever coming down

    I am so frickin' bored
    Nothing to do today
    I guess I'll sit around and medicate (medicate)
    I am so frickin' bored
    Nothing to do today
    I guess I'll sit around and medicate

    Medicate
    Medicate
    Medicate
    Medicate

  • Billy Dwayne from Bakersfield CaliforniaI just have to say this song helped me motivate to save my life YES!!! I SAID IT!! THIS SONG SAVED MY LIFE!!! I I was on pain prescription medication for 10 years I have been clean for 3 years. Every time I hear the song I still break out in tears. Thank you.
  • Wes from Wadsworth OhioThis song baught me yo see what I had become and helped me put prescription drugs in my past indefinitely I do not take any prescription drug whatsoever I do not take any prescriptions whatsoever
  • Monnie from KsI want the band to recognize and realize some prescription pain meds are not only beneficial but in many cases, life saving. Millions have died by their own hands because they have been abandoned because they were on pain medication for serious pain conditions. Please, show that you know this.
