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”

Tom Petty – Girl on LSD

Biisissä lauletaan kaverista, joka rakastuu aina huumeita käyttäviin naisiin.

“I was in love with a girl on marijuana
She said, “If I’m not stoned I don’t wanna”
But she got so paranoid
Her place I would avoid
I was in love with a girl on marijuana

I was in love with a girl on cocaine
She had everything going but her brain
We?d talk endlessly for hours
But by morning it’d go sour
I was in love with a girl on cocaine”

John Butler Trio – Used to Get High

Vaikka biisissä mainitaa iso litania huumeita, niin varsinaiselta sanomaltaan tämä taitaa olla enemmän yhteiskuntakriittinen laulu, siitä miten me kaikki kuljemme kuin pässit yhteiskunnan narussa.

“Super size, large fries, big mac, coca cola
Go on man, pick your poison
Speed, weed, ecstacy, LSD
Man, it don’t bother me cos we’re all on something
Caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol
You know i’m clawing at the walls trying to get my fix
Prozac, ADD tablets, coke, smack
Now you know i am turning tricks cos”

Snow Patrol – How to Be Dead

Voisko tässä olla kyseessä aikuisen ja lapsen välisestä keskustelusta huumeista?!?

“Please take it easy it can’t all be my fault
I haven’t made half the mistakes
That you’ve listed so far
Oh baby let me explain something
It’s all down to drugs
At least I remember taking the and not a lot else
It seems I’ve stepped over lines
You’ve drawn again and again
But if the ecstacy’s in the wit is definitely out
Dr. Jekyll is wrestling Hyde for my pride”
