Deuteronomium – Druglord

Kotimaisen “deukkiksen” tiukka kristillinen “dödö” otti käsittelyynsä kakkosalbumilla myös huumediilerit.

“Could someone tell me who took away
The light from my eyes
I’m walking through my nightmare called life
I don’t care if it is day or night
Don’t have any plans for the future
My future is dead
I only need my needle, don’t need no bread
Deep in my head I know the butcher

Druglord, you stole my soul
Druglord, melted my brains
Druglord, made me a living dead
Don’t give your pinkie to Druglord

I walk alone in my colorless world
I run for needle, steal for a trip
Whore for the Druglord, kill for his wish
I am as free as a wingless bird
I’ve lost my family, I’ve lost my friends
In this valley of misery cold are the walls
And in my head, House of the Damned calls
Will I follow before it ends

Druglord, you stole my soul
Druglord, melted my brains
Druglord, made me a living dead
Don’t give your pinkie to Druglord

Druglord, leave me alone!”

Elliott Smith – Needle in the Hay

“Your hand on his arm
The hay stack charm around your neck
Strung out and thin
Calling some friend trying to cash some check

He’s acting dumb
That’s what you’ve come to expect
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
He’s wearing yr clothes
Head down to toes a reaction to you

You say you know what he did
But you idiot kid
You don’t have a clue
Sometimes they just get caught in the eye

You’re pulling him through
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Now on the bus
Nearly touching this dirty retreat
Falling out 6th and Powell a dead sweat in my teeth

Gonna walk walk walk
Four more blocks plus one in my break
Down downstairs to the man
He’s gonna make it all ok

I can’t beat myself
I can’t beat myself
And I don’t want to talk
I’m taking the cure so I can be quiet

Whenever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I’m getting good marks
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay”

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”

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”

Clawfinger – Sad to See Your Sorrow

Clawfingerin debyyttialbumilta löytyy hieno tilitys voimattomuuden tunteesta kun huumeitten kanssa kamppailevan frendin vierellä on niin turhautunut olo kun tuntuu, ettei voi tehdä mitään auttaakseen häntä.

“I want to touch you but I don’t possess the power
it turns me inside out to feel the pain of your distress
you push the needle deeper in your arm for every hour
I know your life was so beautiful but now it’s turned into a mess
I’ve tried to understand you but the thoughts seems so unreal
that a person would forsake herself and try to break herself with pain
just like a child you’re so innocent and you long so much to feel
but instead you push the needle deeper down your vein
sad to see you sad to see your sorrow
you know I’ve seen you in so many diffrent ways
the reflections of your agony are scared upon your face
warm the spoon just to numb yourself from much much better days
and you hope that someone else is there who might want to take your place
everything you scream I hear you thought you scream so silent
and you’re longing for your babychild to be in a much better place
so addicted to your loneliness full of self destructive violence
you still try to love your child and see the smile opon it’s face
sad to see you sad to see your sorrow…..
take away the pain and take away the sorrow
I cry in silence hoping you’ll come through
take away the pain you could be dead tommorow
I wish that I could help you but there’s nothing I can do
I WISH I COULD HELP YOU BUT THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO
I feel as if I’m by your side even though you’re far away from here
the poison mingles with your blood and slowly satisfies you
but what I wonder most of all is if you really want to disappear
you keep struggleing with emotions mixed inside you
please don’t disappear you know to many people love you
but you see you’re still the only one that can ever dry your tears
so don’t you rely on anyone below or up above you
you better grab your life and then get a grip before it disappears
sad to see you sad to see your sorrow”

Pain – Injected Paradise

“How does it feel to get kicked when you’re down and out?
I said how does it feel to get pushed off the edge and just fall
fall to the ground?

the more that you do, the less you get
why can’t see you you’re going down

you’re on your knees, you’re begging me please
can’t get away from the needle’s chill
you’re taking a ride in endless time
injected paradise

silence rolls up like walls of noise
you’re getting numb and deaf
things are getting out of control
you’re out of control

the more that you do, the less you get
the poison rushing through your dying veins
the more that you take, the more you loose
time is taking its toll

you’re on your knees, you’re begging me please
can’t get away from the needle’s chill
you’re taking a ride in endless time
injected paradise

the more that you do, the less you get
the poison rushing through your dying veins
the more that you take, the more you loose
time is taking its toll

you’re on your knees, you’re begging me please
can’t get away from the needle’s chill
you’re taking a ride in endless time
injected paradise”

Joni Mitchell – Blue

Joni Mitchell veistelee aika onnistuneesti hippikauden loppumisesta tässä vuoden 1971 Blue levyn nimikappaleessa. Rakkaus, pössis ja hyvä tahto on muuttunut muotoon: Acid, booze, and ass / Needles, guns, and grass / Lots of laughs, lots of laughs. Erinomaisen onnistuneet rivit minusta.

“Blue, songs are like tattoos
You know I’ve been to sea betore
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Hey Blue, here is a song for you
Ink on a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there’re so many sinking now
You’ve got to keep thinking
You can make it through these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs, lots of laughs
Everybody’s saying that hell’s the hippest way to go
Well I don’t think so
But I’m gonna take a look around it though
Blue, I love you

Blue, here is a shell for you
Inside you’ll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me”

Temple of the Dog – Times of Trouble

Temple of the Dog perustettiin Mother Love Bonen laulajan Andrew Woodin kunniaksi. Andrew Wood kuoli heroiinin yliannostukseen. Temple of the Dogin ainoalla levyllä useammatkin laulut käsittelevät Woodin poismenoa. Tämä Chris Cornellin kirjoittama laulu kertoo, että älkää tehkö kuin Wood vaan yrittäkää pysyä kasassa ja erossa aineista.

“When the spoon is hot
And the needle’s sharp
And you drift away
I can hear you say
That the world in black
Is upon your back
And your body shakes
So you ditch away
And you close the shades

Don’t try to do it
Don’t try to kill your time
You might do it
Then you can’t change your mind
You’ve got a hold on to your time
Till your break through these
Times of trouble

When you try to talk
And the words get hard
And they put you down
Don’t you stay
Don’t you ditch away

I saw you swinging
Swinging your mother’s sword
I know you’re playing but
Sometimes the rules get hard
But if somebody left you out on a ledge
If somebody pushed you over the edge
If somebody loved you and left you for dead
You got to hold on to your time till you break
Through these times of trouble”

Kris Kristofferson – Billy Dee

Karu stoori nuoresta kaverista, joka lipsahtaa käyttämään aineita ja lopussa ei hyvä heilu.

“Billy Dee was seventeen when he turned twenty-one
Fooling with some foolish things he could’ve left alone
But he had to try to satisfy a thirst he couldn’t name
Driven towards the darkness by the devil in his veins

All around the honky tonks, searching for a sign
Gettin’ by on gettin’ high on women, words and wine
Some folks called him crazy, Lord, and others called him free
But we just called us lucky for the love of Billy Dee

Busy goin’ his own way and speakin’ his own words
Facin’ and forgettin’ every warnin’ that he heard
Makin’ friends and takin’ any crazy chance he could
Gettin’ busted for the bad times and believin’ in the good

Billy took a beatin’ from a world he meant no harm
The score was written in the scars up on his arm
Some felt he was payin’ for the life he tried to lead
But all we felt was sorry for our good friend Billy Dee

It may be his soul was bigger than a body’s oughta be
Singin’ songs and bringin’ laughter to the likes of you and me
Cause the world he saw was sadder than the one he hoped to find
But it wasn’t near as lonesome as the one he left behind

Yesterday they found him on the floor of his hotel
Reachin’ towards the needle, Lord, that drove him down to hell
Some folks called it suicide, others blame the speed
But we all called it crucified when Billy Dee O.D.’d”

Bad Religion – Billy

Biisin on sanottu kuvaavan bändin kitaristin, Brett Gurewitzin, elämää. Onnistuneet sanat, etten sanoisi.

“I can recall the warm youth of a summer day, yeah
The sweetest lemonade, the darkest game arcade
And billy had a yearning in the corner of his mind, yeah
It moved him secretly, it moved him powerfully

But prescience was lacking and the present was all
And his aptitudes were carelessly wasted
And challenging life with the abandon of a fool
He squandered the hours of his day, yeah

Then darkness and disorder slapped him sharply in the face, yeah
It hit him like a friend, struck something deep within
He couldn’t break the chain of slow decay that seemed to drag him
Just like a fatal tie, toward the other side

And billy was a lunatic just barking at the moon
And his brain was totally wasted
He then exchanged his friends for a needle and a spoon
And he threw his future away, yeah

Bolt the door and throw away the key, yeah
Our dim reflection is all that you can see
So where is the justice when no one is at fault
And a human life is tragically wasted
How fragile is the flame that burns within us all
To light each passing day, yeah”

Champion Jack Dupree – Junker’s Blues

Kyllä näissä vanhoissa bluesveisuissa vaan tavoitetaan hienosti tuo fiilis. Hieno on ralli ja hienot on sanat.

“all right… I’m sick as I can be…

Some people call me a junker, cause I’m loaded all the time
I just feel happy and I feel good all the time

Some people say I use a needle, and some say I slip cocaine
But that’s the best old feelin’ that I ever need

Say goodbye, goodbye to whiskey
Lord and so long to gin
I just want my reefer, I just want to feel high again

oh yes I’m a junker
I feel all right

Some people, some people crave for chicken
And some crave for a house steak
But when I get loaded lord I don’t want my milk and cake

oh yeah that’s what I want now…
They call me a junker…
Cause I’m loaded all the time…
But that ain’t nothin that I feel good all the time…”
