Stone – Escape

Suora lainaus Ari Väntäsen kirjoittamasta Stone historiikista: “Esimerkiksi Escapen sanoitus on 15-vuotiaan täysin kokemattoman jätkän käsitys siitä, millaista elämä kovien huumeiden maailmassa.”

“Black curtain is fading the lights out
My eyes are blinded
Sorrow in my head, pain fills my brain
I’m gonna explode unless I get
Speed in my vein

God knows I want to break free
But the pain is too much
So help me, please
I know this ain’t the right way out
What could I dou, I couldn’t
Face the truth

Fight the truth, forget it
Escape from reality
Killing my feelings and lighting
My brain
The easiest way to forgive myself

Run, hide
Fight, hard
Run, hide
But I’ll die

My time is running out, my end nears
I must change, I must see the light
Only god could help me, he’d give
The power
But I can’t live without speed
Am I a coward

Run, hide – Try to escape
Fight, hard – But there’s no way out
Run, hide – Try to escape
But I’ll die – My time’s run out

Damage crept up on me, pain turned too high
My brain was overloaded, ready to blow up
What was in my mind before
It was emptied…

Feeling things suck my brain out
Flaming in my head
Now I’m resting in peace without pain
But there’s one thing you should know
I died with joy

Run, hide – Try to escape
Fight, hard – But there’s no way out
Run, hide – Try to escape
But I’ll die – My time’s run out”

Steely Dan – Jack of Speed

“Teddy’s rolling now most every night
Skatin’ backwards at the speed of light
He’s changed – in a thousand little ways
He’s changed – yes indeed
You know he’s movin’ on metal, yes he’s
Hanging tight with the Jack of Speed

Sheena’s party – there’s a case in point
That right-wing hooey sure stunk up the joint
He’s gone – he walks through the old routines
But he’s gone – guaranteed
He may be sittin’ in the kitchen, but he’s
Steppin’ out with the Jack of Speed

You maybe got lucky for a few good years
But there’s no way back from there to here
He’s a one way rider
On the shriek express
And his new best friend is at the throttle more or less

He can’t hear you honey – that’s alright
Pack some things and head up into the light
Don’t stop – he’ll be callin’ out your name
But don’t stop when you hear him plead
You better move now little darlin’ or you’ll be
Trading fours with the Jack of Speed”

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

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.

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”

Mary Magdalan – Rehab

Biisi kertoo kaverista, joka käyttää tasan kaikkea mitä löytyy ja enemmän.

“I can’t help but to help myself I’m losing my mind I need help
filling my mind with doubt I’d do anything to get out”

Marilyn Manson – The Speed of Pain

Marilyn Mansonin lyriikat ovat usein hyvin monimerkityksellisiä. Tämä kappale voisi viitata kokaiiniin.

“When you want it, it goes away too fast.
Times you hate it, it always seems to last.
Just remember, when you think you’re free,
the crack inside your fuckin heart is me.”

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”
