Witchfinder General – Free Country

Reality it is a lie
The briefest dream before I die
To comprehend the cosmic scheme
See the truth behind my dream

Look out for me
Let’s trip on LSD
Look out for me
DS look out for me

Rocky’s gold, leb is red
Black goes right to my head
Mushroom tea, a toke of weed
Amphetamine is real good speed

Look out for me
Come have some mushroom tea
Look out for me
DS look out for me

Lines of speed on a mirror face
Sniff it up through a biro case
Heroin is for the hero
It’s a killer, you gotta say no

Look out for me
Let’s trip on LSD
Look out for me
DS look out for me

Turn to drugs to free my mind
Just to see what I would find
Tabs are great, now ask the drummer
Smack my friend is just a bummer

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 Only Ones – Another Girl, Another Planet

The Only Onesien pikkuhitti kertoo heroiinin käytöstä.

“I always flirt with death
I could kill, but I don’t care about it
I can face your threats
Stand up tall and scream and shout about it

I think I’m on another world with you
I’m on another planet with you

You always get under my skin
I don’t find it irritating
You always play to win
I don’t need rehabilitating

Another girl, another planet
Another girl, another planet

Space travels in my blood
And there ain’t nothing I can do about it
Long journeys wear me out
Oh God we won’t live without it

Another girl is loving you now
Another planet, forever holding you down
Another planet”

Dizzee Rascal – Bassline Junkie

Kertoo kuinka musiikki ja erityisesti musiikin bassoraita voi olla huumeita voimakkaampaa ja huumaavaa.

Sanat:
Hey turn the bass up, turn the bass up
Big dirty stinking bass, dirty stinking bass
Big dirty stinking bass,
Dirty, dirty stinking,
Big dirty stinking bass, dirty stinking bass
Big dirty stinking bass,
Bass, bass, bass, Fucking bass

[Chorus]
I don’t need no speed, no
I don’t need no heroin, no thanks
I don’t want no coke, not today
You can keep your ketamine, yeah
I’m a bassline junkie, what?
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
And I like it funky,

What the fuck- what you doing, don’t touch it, who told you to touch it? Touch it again and I’ll fucking kill you. Don’t ever touch that fucking shit again

I’m a fiend for a big dirty bassline
When I hear one I have a great time
A bit of butterman’s all I require
I let the bassline take me higher
My friends think that it’s a bad habit, damn it
If you take my bass away
I’ll blow your fucking face away, easy!
You might think I’m over the top
But when I hear that bassline drop
I just can’t control my actions
But I still feel satisfaction
So don’t come around here whinging
I just wanna hear the bassline rinsin
Or we can just skank out all day
If not get the fuck out my way

[Chorus]
I don’t need no speed, no
I don’t need no heroin, no thanks
I don’t want no coke, not today
You can keep your ketamine, yeah
I’m a bassline junkie, what?
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again

And I like it funky
Big dirty stinking bass, dirty stinking bass
Big dirty stinking bass,
Dirty, dirty stinking,
Big dirty stinking bass, dirty stinking bass
Big dirty stinking bass,
Bass, bass, bass

The other day I got an ASBO order
And I think it’s well out of order
All my neighbors throwing a fit
So I told them suck my dick
And I told them I got the power
And I turn the music up louder
All night till 6 in the morning
Old bastards, they just boring
You know me, I’m the bassline father
Nobody can tell me neither
And the police turned up and they took me
We drove out to the nick and they booked me
Then they said they’d give me a caution
If I didn’t give them no distortion
But I said don’t bother, I’m guilty
And my bassline’s fucking filthy

[Chorus]
I don’t need no speed, no
I don’t need no heroin, no thanks
I don’t want no coke, not today
You can keep your ketamine, yeah
I’m a bassline junkie, what?
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I’m a bassline junkie, tell them again
I don’t like it funky
Big dirty stinking bass, dirty stinking bass
Big dirty stinking bass,
Dirty, dirty stinking,
Big dirty stinking bass, dirty stinking bass
Big dirty stinking bass,
Bass, bass, bass
Bass, bass, bass
Bass, bass, bass.

Tom Waits – Crossroads

Karu tarina…

“Now, George was a good straight boy to begin with, but there was bad blood
In him; someway he got into the magic bullets and that leads straight to
Devil’s work, just like marijuana leads to heroin; you think yo ucan take
Them bullets or leave ’em, do you?
Just save a few for your bad days

Well, now, we all have those bad days when you can’t shoot for shit.

The more of them magics you use, the more bad days you have without them
So it comes down finally to all your days being bad without the bullets
It’s magics or nothing
Time to stop chippying around and kidding yourself,
Kid, you’re hooked, heavy as lead

And that’s where old George found himself
Out there at the crossroads
Molding the Devil’s bullets
Now a man figures it’s his bullets, so it will
Hit what he wants to hit
But it don’t always work that way”

Backyard Babies – Heroes and Heroines

“He’s like a king
In her eyes he’s everything
Nitroglycerine
Exploited teens
She had no regrets
But she was no suffragette

They had a deal, Idols for real, Yeah
They’re chasing the sun
The hero and the heroins run
Everything won
But they’re gone
And they hade just begun

I hear the wolverine
Like an evil serpentin
Lady nicotine
She got to be the queen
Here they were young
Can live ’til kingdom come

It was a deal, Idols for real, Yeah
They’re chasing the sun
The hero and the heroins run
Everything won
But they’re gone
And they hade just begun

He’d like to be her brother in arms
In harmony a never ending dream
But all she’s gonna be is naked and disarmed
Didn’t want to be in a happy ending scene

No novelties, It’s over know
Don’t break a deal, Idols for real
Yeah
They’re chasing the sun
The hero and the heroins run
Everything won
But they’re gone
And they hade just begun
And now they are gone”

Guns N’ Roses – My Michelle

Stephen Davis Watch You Bleed -kirjassa kerrotaan biisistä: “Jo alussa äiti on kadonnut maan alle, isä toimii pornomogulina ja Michelle-ressu on itse kokkelipää ja lutka.” Biisin lopussa Michelle saa elämänsa kuosiin.

“Your daddy works in porno
Now that mommy’s not around
She used to love her heroin
But now she’s underground
So you stay out late at night
And you do your coke for free
Drivin’ your friends crazy
With your life’s insanity”
