"Procardia" is a fan made remix of the song "May Cause Discoloration of the Urine or Feces" from the 1995 release Smells Like Children. It is often featured on bootlegged copies of the uncut promotional version of Smells Like Children.

Like the real version, Procardia is a sample from a phone conversation between Barbara Warner (Marilyn Manson's mother) and her mother, Blanche Wyer, regarding Wyer's underconsumption of her Procardia pills.

Lyrics[edit]

    (Blanche Wyer):
    ...6:30 this morning.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    I can't hear ya.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I woke at 6:30 this morning with a headache.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Oh...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I wonder to take 'em or not...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    I wouldn't take 'em.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I don't know, the headache is heavier than anything else.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    It's the first time that you took 'em?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Second.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Yeah...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I had a little bit of a headache this morning.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    I wouldn't take 'em, mom.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I won't take 'em now, 'cause I have a toothache that hurts too a little bit. I've taken
    everything I got, been thinkin'
    
    (Barb Warner):
    All that blood pressure medicine you take and stuff too. You shouldn't take those things. You're
    better off not to sleep then to take the...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    ?
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Oh, my god! No wonder you got a headache! Your pressure's probably sky high! Why don't...You
    gotta take that every day!
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I try though...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Are you crazy?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    It's been 3 days...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    That's probably why you have a headache now...Did you take it today?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I did this morning, yeah.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    That's probably why you have a headache, 'cause your pressure's up.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah.
    
    (Barb Warner): I don't know how you can forget to take it. And when that's the only pill you
    take...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I'm sorry, I have so many pills you'd be surprised.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, the blood pressure pill is the most important one.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah, I know...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    There ain't no other one as important as that one.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I got one more and then I gotta get to the store. I got two refills on it.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    You only got one pill!?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I only take one a day...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, yeah, but you shouldn't let 'em get that low...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I guess not, but I can take one in the morning and then go get some more...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    They're expensive! If you have to pay for 'em... Procardia?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    No, the other one.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Which ones?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I gotta pay for procardia.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Were you taking that every day?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, that's the blood pressure pill... The heart pill, the procardia. And what's the other one?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Ah, H-Y-D-R-O-T-O-N.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Oh, that's something to do with water and... And... Water and, uh, blood pressure.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    This one tag does say it's for blood pressure...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Yeah, I think it works like a water pill type pressure, but the procardia's the important one.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    You have to take that every day.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    You should take that the first thing when you get up...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah...I know.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, how come you ain't got taken it?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I took it yesterday, the procardia.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, how come you didn't take it today?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I had the headache today...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    That's why you have a headache! You gotta take the procardia... Take it now! That's what it's
    for, your headache! It's to make your blood pressure come down.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    If you don't you're gonna ha... You'll have a stroke if you don't take it. If you got a
    pretty... Headache that bad you're gonna have a stroke...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I got a headache that bad this morning.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, you better go take the procardia right now.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I will, I'll take it when I hang up.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    You didn't take that other blood... blood pressure pill either?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah, I did this morning...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, you should take the procardia right now.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I'll take the procardia in after nine. Got a horrible morning...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, you...
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I'm glad you can't see it.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, how long has it been since you took the procardia?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Three days.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    How many?
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Three...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, see, that's ridiculous... You better go take it right now.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I will.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Then you'll find out your headache will go away.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    Yeah. I've taken it now, the procardia, just yet.
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Any other medicine you're taking ain't that important. You ain't got nothing but nerve pills.
    They ain't important.
    
    (Blanche Wyer):
    I take those every day...
    
    (Barb Warner):
    Well, the nerve pills ain't that important. The blood pressure medicine's important.
