Skills in Pills is the first song on the album Skills in Pills by Lindemann.

Background

  • Till has said the following about this song: "It’s about hypocrisy in modern society. The use of drugs is still being rejected in broad sections of the population. While the same people are often addicted to all kinds of pills prescribed by doctors. The use of booze, how excessive it may be, is widely accepted"[1]

Lyrics

Album version

If you want to die
Or if you want to chill
Even if you want to get high
Whatever happens, take a pill

The first I take against depression
The second is pure energy
A green one for my self-aggression
Then a red one - Ecstasy, Ecstasy (-sy, -sy ,-sy)

All the left is right
All the black is white
All the fast was slow
All the loose is tight
All the heat is snow
All the high was low
All the grief is fun
All the, all the rain is sun
Skills in pills

If the jag gets really strong
A pink one goes with booze and blow
So I keep fucking all night long
The orange is for, I don't know

The grey one for my perfect sleep
Yellow for my needful cure
A blue one keeps my boner steep
I take two, just to be sure

All the left is right
All the black is white
All the fast was slow
All the loose is tight
All the heat is snow
All the high was low
All the grief is fun
All the, all the the rain is sun

Skills in pills
Skills in pills
Skills in pills
Skills in pills

All the left is right
All the black is white
All the fast was slow
All the loose is tight
All the heat is snow
All the high was low
All the grief is fun
All the, all the rain is sun

A white one for my whatever pain
In the end I start to cry
So I take the first again
I have a last one and I hope to die
