Project X – Straight Edge Revenge

Tässä biisissä tuodaan suht suorasukaisesti esiin Streittareiden mielipide niin alkoholiin kuin huumeisiinkin.

“I’m as straight as the line that you sniff up your nose
I’m as hard as the booze that you swill down your throat
I’m as bad as the shit you breath into your lungs
And I’ll fuck you up as fast as the pill on your tongue
STRAIGHT EDGE REVENGE

This time you pushed me too far!
I’m as straight as the line that you sniff up your nose
I’m as hard as the booze that you swill down your throat
I’m as bad as the shit you breath into your lungs
And I’ll fuck you up as fast as the pill on your tongue
STRAIGHT EDGE REVENGE”

Lynyrd Skynyrd – That Smell

70-luvun puolivälissä Lynyrd Skynyrdin useat muusikot olivat sotkeutuneet heroiinin käyttöön. Heroiinin polttamisesta lähtevään hajuun viittaa biisin nimikin. Biisin kirjoittaja Van Zandt purkaa ensimmäisessä säkeistössä pelkojaan. Yhtyeen toinen kitaristi Gary Rossingtonin oli nimittäin juuri aineissa ajanut auton päin tammea.

“Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars
Oak tree you’re in my way
There’s too much coke and too much smoke
Look what’s going on inside you
Ooooh that smell
Can’t you smell that smell
Ooooh that smell
The smell of death surrounds you”

Third Eye Blind – Semi-Charmed Life

“The sky it was gold, it was rose, I was taking sips of it through my nose
And I wish I could get back there, some place back there
Smiling in the pictures you would take, doing crystal meth will lift you up until you break
It won’t stop, I won’t come down, I keep stock, with a tick-tock rhythm, a bump for the drop
And then I bumped up, I took the hit that I was given, then I bumped again, then I bumped again
I said, how do I get back there to the place where I fell asleep inside you?
How do I get myself back to the place where you said”

Tämä tarinahan voisi kulkea rataa, että kaveri tykästyy amfetamiiniin ja se vie hänet mennessään.
