Appearances

Overview

Originally titled "Do You Wanna Get High?" (though unrelated the later song of the same name), "Medicine" was co-written by Cuomo with musicians Daniel Brummel and Ryen Slegr (of the band Ozma) and demoed at some point between 2012 and 2014. Demos of the song were initially included on the compilation album Alone XII: The White Year, before being removed shortly thereafter (due to the inclusion of songwriters other than Cuomo). Cuomo later released the demos as part of the digital compilation Weezma: Daniel, Ryen & Rivers on December 11, 2020.

Lyrics

Do You Wanna Get High? (ver. 2)

This is kinda weird
We've been sitting here
In our street clothes
Scared of ???
Before we make a move
I have to ask you

Girl, do you wanna get
Wanna get, wanna get
Girl, do you wanna get
Wanna get high?

We won't need to think
Or fuss around with
Credit card statements
Ugliness melts away
I normally abstain but
You've got something

Girl, do you wanna get
Wanna get, wanna get
Girl, do you wanna get
Wanna get high?

Girl, do you wanna get
Wanna get, wanna get
Girl, do you wanna get
Wanna get high?

Medicine (ver. 8)

Malicious aliens
Struck me in the neck with their poison
Writing code in my brain
Making me go blind, deaf, and dumb

Give me some medicine, medicine, medicine
Give me some medicine, so I can get well

It's difficult to take
A flavor like a lemon in ???
But take it, mom, take it, dad
Life isn't just about eating donuts

Give me some medicine, medicine, medicine
Give me some medicine, so I can get well
Drink up the medicine, medicine, medicine
I'll be as bright-eyed and bushy-tailed
???
