Humble Pie – 30 Days in the Hole

Taitaa kertoa kaverista, joka joutui 30 päiväksi vankilaan huumeiden käytöstä.

“Roll my tape
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Thirty days,
Anyone doin’ that one?
I’m doin’ that one

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole

All right all right all right all right, yeah

Chicago Green, talkin’ ’bout Black Lebanese
A dirty room and a silver coke spoon
Give me my release, come on
Black Nepalese, it’s got you weak in your knees
Sneeze some dust that you got buzzed on
You know it’s hard to believe

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
That’s what they give you
30 days in the hole
I know

Newcastle Brown, I’m tellin’ you, it can sure smack you down
Take a greasy whore and a rollin’ dance floor
It’s got your head spinnin’ round
If you live on the road, well there’s a new highway code
You take the urban noise with some dirt with poison
It’s gonna lessen your load

30 days in the hole
That’s what they give you now
30 days in the hole
Oh, yeah
30 days in the hole
All right, all right
30 days in the hole

What you doin’ boy?
You here for 30 days
Get, get, get your long hair cut
And cut out your ways

Black Nepalese, it got you weak in your knees
Gonna sneeze some dust that you got busted on
You know it’s so hard to please
Newcastle Brown can sure smack you down
You take a greasy whore and a rollin’ dance floor
You know you’re jailhouse-bound

30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole
Oh, yeah
30 days in the hole
30 days, 30 days in the hole
30 days in the hole”

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”

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

Third Eye Blind – Slow Motion

Third Eye Blindin “Slow Motion” on kirjoitettu dramatisoimaan median luomaa kuvaa huumeiden käytöstä Hollywoodissa. Blue albumin Amerikan versiossa laulusta on vain liki instrumentaaliversio, koska levy-yhtiön mielestä sanat olivat liian rajut.

“Miss Jones taught me english,
But I think I just shot her son
‘Cause he owed me money
With a bullet in the chest you can not run

Now he’s bleeding in a vacant lot
The one in the summer where we used to smoke pot
I guess I didn’t mean it
But man, you shoulda seen it

His flesh explode
Slow motion, see me let go
We tend to die young
Slow motion, see me let go
What a brother knows
Slow motion, see me let go

Now the cops will get me,
But girl, if you would let me
I’ll take your pants off
I got a little bit of blow we could both get off

Later bathing in the afterglow,
Two lines of coke I cut with Drano
And her nose starts to bleed
A most beautiful ruby red

Slow motion, see me let go
We’ll remember these days
Slow motion, see me let go
Urban life decay
Slow motion, see me let go

And at home, my sister’s eating paint chips again,
Maybe that’s why she’s insane
I shut the door to the moaning,
And I shoot smack in veins
Wouldn’t you?

See my neighbor’s beating his wife,
Because he hates his life
There’s a knock to his fist as he swings,
Oh man, what a beautiful thing

And death slides close to me,
Won’t grow old to be
A junkie wino creep

Hollywood glamorized my wrath,
I’m a young urban psychopath
I incite murder, for your entertainment
‘Cause I needed the money, what’s your excuse?
The joke’s on you.

Slow motion, see me let go,
Oh yeah.
Slow motion, see me let go, oh
Slow motion, see me let go, ooh”

Ice-T – I’m Your Pusher

Ice-T on biisissä diileri, joka diilaa musiikkian.

“Yo,it’s time for me to pump the volume
No problem,the record’s revolvin’
Evil’s the mixer,I’m the rap trixister
Paparazzi on the bum rush for pictures
Ice,coolin’,yo colder than ever
Punk executioner E pull the lever
Rotate the wax tehn cut an’axe the tracks
Push up the levels till the red lights max
Don’t try to size up,you better wise up
To the rap criminals,we’re succeeded
Dope beats and lyrics,no beepers needed
For this drug deal,I’m the big wheel
The dope I’m sellin’,you don’t smoke,you feel
Out on the dance floor,on my world tour
I’m sellin’ dope in each and every record store
I’m the king pin when the wax spins
Crack or smack will take you to a sure end
You don’t need it,just throw that stuff away
You wanna get high?Let the record play”

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”

Eminem – I’m Shady

Eminemin lyriikat usein kuvaavat hänen omaa elämäänsä… kuinkahan tämä?

“I got mushrooms, I got acid, I got tabs and aspirin tablets
I’m your brother when you need, some good weed to set you free
You know me, I’m your friend, when you need a minithin
(I’m Slim Shady..) I’m Shady!!”

Brand Nubian – Slow Down

Hmm… ainakin eka säe kertoo kaverista, joka jättää tyttönsä, koska tämän huumeiden käyttö menee pahempaan suuntaan.

“The object of your affection is the tree-top connection
Or basically you love to smoke the wools
The crackheads attract man they come up to my door
I don’t smoke gems so what they knocking for”

Nina Hagen – Smack Jack

Hagen laulaa heroiinin käytöstä.
“He just needs a hot shot,
He just needs a hot shot,
You need a hot shot
You need a hot shot

You are always running out
And you are always running short
Nothing matters anymore
All you want is go and score
No one starts with two a day
But they all seem to end that way”

Motörhead – Dead Men Tell No Tales

“You used to be my friend,
But that friendship’s coming to an end,
My meaning must be clear,
You know pity is all that you hear,
But if you’re doing smack,
You won’t be coming back,
I ain’t the one to make your bail,
Dead Men Tell No Tales”

Hm, Motörhead varoittelemassa heroiinin vaaroista…
