The Wildhearts – Sick of Drugs

“Waking up with an 8.2
When it seemed like the easiest thing to do
When someone said ‘Here’s one for you!’
Mouth’s so dried and I just spit ash
In a hole in my pocket full of wasted cash
But it’s alright, it was just bad stash

‘Jump inside’ he said, I tried
‘I never met a junkie that I didn’t like’ said he
And who am I to disagree?

Oh, how can you stay when you’re 60 million miles away?
How can you fly when your home free?
And how can you feel when your mind’s made up like a will of steel?
How can you deal in your tree?
Sick of ecstacy

Kicked in bad and you got too low
To be down in a company you didn’t know
Said ‘Come on in, got a right good blow’
Yeah, talking, talking, the whole world’s clear
Until a guy with a goatee got a touch of fear
Which went round the room like diarrhoea

Bored with this
I’m bored with that
I’m stuck in bed alone with a you-know-what
No rest
With a heart beating out of your chest

Oh, how can you stay when you’re 60 million miles away?
How can you fly when your home free?
And how can you feel when your mind’s made up like a will of steel?
How can you deal in your tree?
Sick of LSD

Oh, how can you stay when you’re 60 million miles away?
How can you fly when your home free?
And how can you feel when your mind’s made up like a will of steel?
How can you deal in your tree?
Oh, how can you stay when you’re 60 million miles away?
How can you fly when your home free?
And how can you feel when your mind’s made up like a will of steel?
How can you deal in your tree?
Sick of drugs are we”

Backyard Babies – I Love to Roll

Backyard Babiesillä meni 2001 lujaa. Dregenin elämänkerrasta napattua:

“Making Enemies Is Good -levyn äänityssopimukseen oli kirjattu kokaiinibudjetti, kevyesti naamioidussa muodossa toki. Se tunnettiin yleisesti nimellä “Keksipurkki”. Sen olemassaoloon viittasi levyn avausraita, sattuvasti nimetty I Love to Roll, joka päättyy kollektiiviseen snorttaukseen. kaikki bändin jäsenet sekä studion vieraat kantoivat kortensa kekoon.”

“I love to roll with the 1, 2, 3,4!

Cannibal Ox – Painkillers

Elämä on tekee kipeää ja kipua voi lievittää jos jollakin.

“You know we rap drugs and pain kill
Cause life’s ill

Yo, some nights we got so drunk
Its like we miss the feeling
Of a never ending headache
And a spinning ceiling
The sob story of an alcoholic
On his hands and knees
Praying to that porcelain toilet
Whether behind bars or in front of scars
We use medicine to numb the rap bar
I might tell you something that’ll change your death
Pain kills the life
Pleasure loves the breath
Ox a-cappell
I’ll spit this in hell
With L’s hanging off my body
And no ice cooler
Every rhyme I write
Is civilize my future wife
Breaking her water
In a time without order
Yo, chaos is born
A seance is spawned
And I resurrect light beams
That resemble the red dawn
I guess that’s why I was born
To recognize the beauty of a rose’s thorn
And learn from the strife of a soul that’s torn
To be forewarned
Just to be forearmed
So let that thought settle
As we backpeddle
Through the seven seas of info
That’ll crush your ego
Some of us pop pills and snort coke
To pain kill
Some of us rap drugs and bear witness
Cause life’s ill
Y0, but true happiness comes from within
You can’t rely on a substance
Look at addiction for instance
And in an instance
You’ll wake up out of that
Requiem for a Dream
But you still caught it in the rectum

Right here trapped in the box
Thinkin’
Rap’s all I got
Smoke too much pot
Bones with ?chromes? twisted in knots
Cold vein with thoughts
Bubbling hot
Stoned in the bedroom
Writin’ this poem
Off the phone
Caught a head rush
Smoke clouded my dome
At the end of my ropes
Writing these notes
Hopin’ to float
Above this bullshit
Pull spliffs blowin’ the ghosts
The sky’s the limit
Stay high with vision
Visualize the body righteous
Lost cipher
The mind’s wisdom
Helped me through life’s transitions
I’m in a tight position
Hungry-ass shit flippin’
With no sex or wretch
This stress got my chest a mess
Breathless
I’m vexed
Trying to escape out of the depths
Of hell’s nest
So I rest inhale
The trauma blessed
And let the stress exhale
Through clouds of cess
My mind foggy
And body wet
Poppin’ shotties
Shot straight through the nostril
Cloudy with thoughts of ill type menageries
When pops used to tell me
“it wasn’t like this
With drugs and sex
Up in my day”
But poppy
Shit really changed
Yo niggas is losing their minds
And I can’t really blame them
I’m losing my brain
In these times
And I’m angered with hangovers
Ready to ride off a cliff with a Range Rover
Like I was fuckin’ Thelma & Louise
And if I had a trigger I would squeeze
But ?leave?
Blow my whole head off and bleed
Trying to get that same feeling
Every day pain killing”

The Psycho Realm – Confessions of a Drug Addict

The Psycho Realmin esikoislätys biisi alkaa osuvasti samplella The Doors elokuvasta.

“Intro [Jim Morrison The Doors Movie]
Hey Man.. I feel the universe functioning perfectly but i’m still perfectly locked inside myself..
Instead of oneness i feel isolation..

Chorus [Big Duke] What type of drugs do you do?
And, what do you do to get your hands on your, shit mothafucka,
Huh! What kind of dirty tricks you do to get yourself fixed,
You’re all sick; is it lack of love? Or lack of your withdrawal.
Drugs!! I need femine venoms in the system,
In order to function, with the rhythm.

[Big Duke] You get hooked to the look of wild women,
And wanna live in, the land of the unforgiven,
Habits, that turn, bad ones individuals,
make ’em, poison rituals,
Gotta have it a have it, a habit,
Welcome, your traces of an addict.

[B Real] God forgive me for my bad habits,
Drug addict, needle up in my vein, I got to have it,
To kill the pain, you silly rabbit,
dig a hole under the sun to hide from the static.
Automatic, pressure, got to kill it,
Give me some act..rite juice, so I can feel it,
Aahhh…everything is all right,
The eye of the needle cries out to the dark side.
Looking inside through the outdoor knocking,
But society won’t let me in, so I grab my stockin,
Put over my head, and get the dough,
Cause the needle is my God, and smack is my soul,
Paraphernalia in my domain, brings conclusion,
That I’m using, but the question is am I abusing,
Infested in the residence of pico union,
Drug intrusion, color fusion,
Invasion, of your senses, maintain relapse, Dilate eye lenses.
my dependence on the chemical, artifical dreams,
Is what, makes my, habit obscene.

Chorus [Big Duke]
What type of drugs do you do?
And, what do you do to get your hands on your, shit mothafucka,
Huh! …What kind of dirty tricks you do to get yourself fixed,
You’re all sick; is it lack of love? Or lack of your withdrawal.
Drugs!! I need femine venoms in the system,
In order to function, with the rhythm.

[Sick Jacken] Tinted like the darkest shadows, my mind is cloudy,
Subliminal commands will penetrate, then I get rowdy,
Conditions drowsy, the sedative brings negative energy,
I slump down and stare ahead of me.
Powerful like meth amphetamines, my state is altered,
This here’s no lie, hydroponic, chronic,
Got you feeling all erotic, aphrodisiac who’s got it,
Alvarado maniacs, risk prison time buyin…
…Dimes, When you got a fix, you get in the mix, there’s no denyin,
Drug be the only factor, got me in the rapture,
Make an addict out of you, And proceed to capture, your mind.

[Big Duke] You’re, mine, choke hold to your whole, skull, substance uncontrolled,
Who holds, straight keys to locks, and unlocks, key holes.
The structure of my trip is unstoppable,
I’m 50 hits to the dot, all powerful.
We go, deranged and remain living the last days in the haze of purple micro.

[B Real] I remember when I was a high school star,
Had prom queens, scholarship, brand new car,
It’s funny, you never know who your friends are,
Till you lose all your sensibilities to the jar,
From The act..rite, But I’m all wrong,
No wonder my family,
Don’t wanna have nothing to do with me,
Humiliation, neglect, no respect,
The concept of rehabilitation has been swept,
I wish I was clean, a far fetched dream,
But what other way, am I gonna blow of my steam,

[All Together]Heaven’s all in this bottle of juice

[B Real]Making me feel high

[Sick Jacken]Making me feel loose

[Big Duke]Got nowhere to turn to, no one trust me, I don’t even trust myself”

Madonna – Devil Pray

Take my sins and wash them away
Teach me how to pray
I’ve been stranded here in the dark
Take these walls away

I’ve been swimming in the ocean
Till I’m almost drowned
Give me something I can believe in
Teach me how to pray

And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whiskey

Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned

And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid

Forever been lost with no way home

Yeah we can run
And we can hide
But we won’t find the answers
If you’ll go down and you’ll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul,
Then we should travel all together
And make the devil pray

Mother Mary, can’t you help me?
Cuz I’m gone astray
All the angels that were around me
Have all flown away

The ground beneath my feet’s getting warmer
Lucifer is near
Holding on, but I’m getting weaker
Watch me disappear

And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whiskey

Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned

And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid

Forever been lost with no way home

Yeah we can run
And we can hide
But we won’t find the answers
If you’ll go down and you’ll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul,
Then we could travel all together
And make the devil pray

Ooh ooh ooh sing hallelujah
Ooh ooh ooh save my soul
Ooh ooh ooh the devil was here to fool ya
Until my story’s told

James Brown – Public Enemy No. 1, Pt. 1

Vuonna 1972 James Brown ensin julkaisi singlenä King Heroin -kappaleen ja muutaman kuukauden kuluttua jatkoi aiheesta tällä kaksiosaisessa Public Enemy -biisillä.

“You know, this is James Brown

I’m such a lover of people
because people did so much for me
I’m a lover of humanity, all of mankind
and I feel that He who has been successful
should look out for his fellow brother,
I feel that is my role, that is my job

I know when i was a kid,
see I was going to be a preacher, huh, ay
maybe I am, but I feel like I’m a teacher, somewhat,
because i’ve been able to experience things that most, the poor,
or a lot of other people have never been able to, even the rich.

So I’ll start by preaching right here,
because I want to preach to you one more time about heroin.

I talked once before, now I want to preach.
i want to start by saying
I heard heroin talking one more time and said

From where I came, nobody knows
I come from the land where the poppy seed grows
a whole nation gathered to plot my destruction
because I’m a breeder of crime and wholesale corruption
…you say, I’m pure and then undilluatable
and once I’m in your blood I make it pursuitable

now only they say sing it on son,
sing it on son, she says i’ve lost my son, he’s gone away
sing it on son, you might save a life

I said madam, lookie here,
I say, on the record and make all men
that date to use it will wallow in sin
driven then to commit a world of crime
…captive their will and destroy their mind
they changed their lives and destroyed the meek
misuser of fools and made the strong men weak.

I know!!
wait a minute,
lookie here,
they take gold from the rich and made them poor
take young foolish maden and made her a whore.
look at that!

and then I heard, about that time,
I heard a man in the corner,
he was sitting down with his head down low,
I noticed him when he first walk in

and he was addicted to drugs and he said I feel it,
and brother I want to getup and testify
so everybody started screamin and hollerin and crying
I saw a little tears coming from my eye, because I know I felt it
and this brother got up and said, let me have it!
I want to tell you everything! Talk to a man that knows!

he said, some will sell me and some will buy
for a state of affection and they cause high
but regardless of the position, and reason of use
you control my addition, and I give nothing but abuse

he said let me tell you about heroin,
and the full cause of torment
for its pleasures and pain
it will take all of your money and poison your brain

lord, I started singing, mmmmm
the place started rocking a little bit
I heard someone tapping their foot, and they said sing on brother
I started humming a little in the back ground
and then that brother said wait a minute

he said, beware of the sharp needle brother
it’ll make you sick
annoint angels and won’t let you kick
it’ll make you hustle, steal, borrow and beg
I’m still talking about that bad thing, king heroin
when you want to look for a vein in your arm or your leg

…I felt so bad I didn’t know what to do.

he said, more more precious than diamonds, more treasured than gold
more potent than whiskey, more gathered than wine
it’ll just give you discomfort, and no peace of mind

and when you come out the nod you’ll always be aware,
you shot every drop into your heart
and its full of fear

now you must rush out and hit another sting
praise me, as I oh heroin the king

but he said be quick my friend, get off your knees!
oh yeah!!! get off your knees.
you’re up tight and accept no pleas”

The Simpletones – I Like Drugs

Hurmaavasti nimetty punkkipumppu teki 70-luvun lopulla varsin tarttuvan rallin, jossa tekee selväksi mieltymyksensä :-D

“I need a joint before my next class
But if I come in stoned they get all over my ass
Yesterday I went to school dusted
Everyone tells me that I will soon be busted

but I like drugs, I like drugs
making me high, making me high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask

Everyone tell me that I’m a born loser
A fool, a disgraceful drug abuser
They say that I’m a lost and lowly child
When I turn 19 Just watch me run wild

I like drugs, I like drugs
Making me high, oh so high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask me nothing

I like drugs, I like drugs
Making me high, oh so high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask me about nothing at all”

Pain – Pull Me Under

“I’m gonna ride on my addiction tide
why don’t you come and watch me die
can’t get enough – you know I never get enough
I am gonna do it ’til I die
and every time I throw my face against the wall
just to know that I am alive
my mind is getting twisted and my body is getting numb
I have succeeded the ultimate rush

leaving it all behind, I need my mind to spin me around

pull me under
suck me in, spit me out, hold on tight cause I am going down
I am what the drugs make me

I am doing time in my toasted mind
crash and burn – I guess I never learn
bring me down on my knees and drag me through the dirt
got nowhere to hide

leaving it all behind, I need the drugs to spin me around

pull me under
suck me in, spit me out, hold on tight cause I am going down
I am what the drugs make me
I fall over
shut me up, throw me out, hold on tight cause I am going down
I let the drugs help me

I don’t wanna be alone
I guess I am not the only one

leaving it all behind, I need the drugs to spin me around

pull me under
suck me in, spit me out, hold on tight cause I am going down
I am what the drugs make me
I fall over
shut me up, throw me out, hold on tight cause I am going
down
I let the drugs help me

pull me under
shut me up, spit me out
I fall over”
