The Cult Bad Medicine Waltz

It’s funny how people stare

When your back’s against the wall

It’s funny how people stare

When your back’s against the wall

I reach my hand

I reach my hand

For that bad medicine

The crowds are full of heroes

Propping up the mark with their empty goals

It’s starting and it’s raining

And the porno burns my eyes

Wipe away the tear

With the skin from my hide

Don’t you give into that bad medicine

Keep on smiling

It’s funny how people stare

When your back’s against the wall

Oh, it’s funny how people stare

When your back’s against the wall

I’ve heard about this new world you’re building

But will there be room for me?

It’s starting and it’s raining

And the porno burns my eyes

Wipe away the tear

With the skin from my hide

Reach out for that bad medicine

Ooh, feel your skin burn

Feel your soul turn

Don’t you give into

Don’t you give into that bad medicine

Bad medicine

Smile, it may take a while

But it’s better than being nailed to the floor

Spit in their face if they stare while you’re down

Don’t reach out for that bad medicine

Don’t reach out for that bad medicine

Try smiling or smile or smile

Bad medicine get hold of

Bad medicine get hold of you

Wipe away the tears

With the skin from my hide

Wipe away the tears

With the skin from my hide

It’s funny how people stare

When your back’s against the wall

It’s funny how people stare

When your back’s against the wall

I reach out my hand

I reach out my hand for that bad medicine

Don’t you give into

Don’t you give into that bad medicine

That bad medicine
