Song Released: 2017
Rx (Medicate) Lyrics
anonymous Dec 16th 2020 report
As with any art, there are two versions of meaning, first what was the artists feeling and motivation. Second, is how that art makes the person feel or respond. It's ironic how all interpretations focus on the drugs and no one addressed or thought about "Superman is a hero...but needs that fix like the rest of us", what's his addiction? LOVE is what he and all of us need, the absence of LOVE is what sends the troubled further into the abyss. LOVE is what we should give to even those that only hate. I'm a PTSD disabled veteran, so the "20 dead on the evening news" is what hit me the most, but all of it is good because it means so much to so many. Thank you Theory of a Deadman!

I am 58 years old. I heard this song for the first time yesterday. I just listened to it and read the words. This has been in my world for as long as I remember. Addiction. This song hit me in the soul. Thank you RX for this beautiful piece of music

Very descriptive of life w chronic pain. It strikes me this way bc I live in physical pain hourly.
As a Mom of an addict who died I feel that he's doing his part to share a part of a story. Stopping the stigma of addiction and the shame! Theory I commend you for your actions and using your art to express your hearts and opening up on such a controversial issue but that's the point of this whole thing...start the conversation! You helped do just that! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I see this song as explaining that everyone has their own drug, their own addiction. For instance; that cop is high right now or your priest is high right now. It’s not just about actual drugs, but things that you addict to like a drug. Something that you attach to for self satisfaction.
Just like the others this song is literally addressing the issues with drugs and how they are just the 1st thing everyone goes too. "All those flavors of the rainbow
Too bad that shit DON'T WORK THOUGH" just because most of a song is setting the story all it takes is one verse... Or half a verse to explain the reason behind the song
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

As a struggling drug addict this song hit home hard...

This song is showing the problem with prescription drugs being used as the first method of treatment for any minor grievance. The song was inspired by a therapist telling someone after a divorce that he needs anti-depressants. It is not to capitalize off of people with drug addictions, but rather to show awareness as to how these issues can start.

This song doesn't promote drug use, it shows how drugs have taken over our lives. It raises the problem that whenever there is a problem we turn towards drugs to fix them. This song opens our eyes to realize that we need to stop letting drugs control our lives.

Society is collapsing due to a lack of morals and chronic drug use but WTF, we might as well make a profit off of it with this clever song.
