  • (We're prescribing you a medication, fuck)

    Doctor says that I'm so lonely
    A mistake on the painting of my family
    But that big smudge is what i love
    Give me a Grenade and I'll tape to my face

    Gettin' drunk at quarter to one
    'Cause my dad is a geezer and he keys up my mum
    You put it in my mouth, I'm gonna bite down
    If that ain't normal then the pope is a right clown

    Lost in the White light, white heat
    Fire shots in our arms on your street
    Lost in the White light, white heat
    I'm blank why you shouting at me

    I just wanna take my
    I just wanna take my
    My medication
    I just wanna find my
    I just wanna find my
    My motivation
    I just wanna take my
    I just wanna take my
    My medication
    'Cause I just wanna find my
    I just wanna find my
    My motivation

    Woo
    Doctor says, "Don't fight that feeling"
    But my head is stuck to the ceiling
    I can't get it off
    You superglued it on
    It's like I'm a bad scene stuck in a wet dream

    My heart is a bomb, it just ticks along
    With a bang, bang, bang on a beat up tin drum
    I'm an experiment of young irrelevance
    I'm insecure so I got tattoo of an elephant

    Lost in the White light, white heat
    Fire shots in our arms on your street
    Lost in the White light, white heat
    I'm blank why you shouting at me

    I just wanna take my
    I just wanna take my
    My medication
    I just wanna find my
    I just wanna find my
    My motivation
    I just wanna take my
    I just wanna take my
    My medication
    'Cause I just wanna find my
    I just wanna find my
    My motivation

    You cannot pretend there's no dirt on your shirt
    'Cause that's not how it works, no, that's not how it works
    You try to perceive that you're so squeaky clean
    But that's not how it works, that's not that's not how it works
    You cannot pretend there's no dirt on your shirt
    'Cause that's not how it works, no, that's not how it works
    You try to perceive that you're so squeaky clean
    But that's not how it works, that's not that's not how it works

    I just wanna take my
    I just wanna take my
    My medication
    I just wanna find my
    I just wanna find my
    My motivation
    I just wanna take my
    I just wanna take my
    My medication
    'Cause I just wanna find my
    I just wanna find my
    My motivation Writer/s: David Anthony Katz, Dominic Harrison, Patrick Nissley

  • Wheely Sad from Heaven love yungblud :)
  • Chloe Yuh from HellsTiLl confuses but love yungblud xx
  • Hassa from SwedenWhere did he say this? I am doing a project and I could use the source for it.

    "If something terrible happens, I can just pick up my phone right away to numb the pain," Yungblud said. "But then because of that we end up resorting to drugs to try to feel something, or to escape the craziness of everything going on in the world. 'Medication' is a comment on how confusing all that is, especially for young people."
