This song deals with the placebo effect, meaning that if you think you are taking medicine, you will feel better, even if the medicine contains no active ingredients. In the song, the girl's misery is in her head, and she has the power to feel better. This is Meg White's least favorite song of the band's because she finds the meaning behind the song problematic. She even made Jack White remove some lyrics before agreeing to record the song. In response to this, Jack would tease Meg by changing the lyrics to "Meg, you have no faith in medicine..." when performing this live. : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtchPKoDMkc

They open my eyes to so much music that I would likely have not heard anywhere else in my life, and that brings me so much joy.” You can donate to KEXP's Fall Drive now: https://www.kexp.org/donate/
