The Lyrics

Exploiting our pain for their profits
Insulting our minds with their ads
Killing us slowly with their drugs
Killing us legally with their scrips
Ruining our whole lives with their meds
Killing us slowly with their pills

I heard it was a good pill
with small effects on the side
And so I came to take it
and tried it for a while
but then it gave me hemorrhoids
and blurriness in my eyes

I felt all flushed with needles
and dryness in my mouth
It also bound my bowels
and worsened my gout
I prayed that it would finish
But it just kept right on

My ears rang really badly
In all my dark despair
And then i got real spacey
As if I wasn't there
but still there was this stinging
stinging on my tongue

I love those ads for remedies for relatively minor ailments that come with warnings like "may cause fever, shortness of breath, fetal abnormalities, permanent nerve damage, liver failure, etc.". About half the time the side effects listed are the same symptoms you took the drug for in the first place. Of course, if you have these problems, just tune in to daytime TV where every other commercial starts "If you or a loved one died from taking xxx pills, give us a call at Ambulance, Chaser, and Crook. We may be able to get money for you".
