Could you please tell us what “The Pill” actually is? A psychiatric drug, anticonception pill or maybe something else?
EA: In ‘Take The Pill’, the actual pill is anything you want it to be. As we all know, the world of western medicine is filled with doctors who over-prescribe drugs to their patients. Often, the patient does not need the drug, and often, the doctor is being paid by the drug company to prescribe it to people, even though it may be unsafe, untested, or unnecessary. In some extreme cases, we are forced to take these drugs, when incarcerated within a mental hospital for example. I’ve been put into a line with other mental patients and given drugs with names I didn’t even know while the nurses watched to make sure I didn’t spit them out or hide them underneath my tongue. We were being experimented on, and we were told we would be just fine, but most of us weren’t. Some of these drugs have altered my mind and changed the way I think forever. I will never be the same. The medical community denies that this happens. The drug companies deny that these side effects could even possible exist. We are all called liars. But the worst thing is when you actually do need a drug, and it has horrible, life-ruining side effects, but you have to take it anyway, every day, simply in order to stay alive. You need the drug, but you hate the drug. It keeps you alive but it makes your life miserable. These are the drugs I am on now, and this is why the song is so angry.
