Black Label Society – Stoned And Drunk

Eipä ole paljon lohtua tässä The Blessed Hellride -levyn avausbiisissä. Elämä niin sanotusti viturallaan.

“Disillusioned, pure confusion
Where I’m rolling, never never knowing

Walkin’ minefields, all is surreal
Where I’m rolling, never never knowing

Walked out of my mind
Don’t want to find, whatevers left
Poppin’ pills and drinkin’ booze
Smokin’ everyday
Stoned and drunk completely gone
My world is here to stay

Ain’t no silence, constant violence,
Where I’m rolling, never never knowing
Demolition, crucifixion
Where I’m rolling, never never knowing

Walked out of my mind,
Don’t want to find, whatevers left
Stoned and drunk completely gone
My world is here to stay
Hide my fears and kill my doubts
Whatevers in my way
Poppin’ pills and drinkin’ booze
Smokin’ everyday
Stoned and drunk completely gone
My world is here to stay”

Cannibal Ox – Painkillers

Elämä on tekee kipeää ja kipua voi lievittää jos jollakin.

“You know we rap drugs and pain kill
Cause life’s ill

Yo, some nights we got so drunk
Its like we miss the feeling
Of a never ending headache
And a spinning ceiling
The sob story of an alcoholic
On his hands and knees
Praying to that porcelain toilet
Whether behind bars or in front of scars
We use medicine to numb the rap bar
I might tell you something that’ll change your death
Pain kills the life
Pleasure loves the breath
Ox a-cappell
I’ll spit this in hell
With L’s hanging off my body
And no ice cooler
Every rhyme I write
Is civilize my future wife
Breaking her water
In a time without order
Yo, chaos is born
A seance is spawned
And I resurrect light beams
That resemble the red dawn
I guess that’s why I was born
To recognize the beauty of a rose’s thorn
And learn from the strife of a soul that’s torn
To be forewarned
Just to be forearmed
So let that thought settle
As we backpeddle
Through the seven seas of info
That’ll crush your ego
Some of us pop pills and snort coke
To pain kill
Some of us rap drugs and bear witness
Cause life’s ill
Y0, but true happiness comes from within
You can’t rely on a substance
Look at addiction for instance
And in an instance
You’ll wake up out of that
Requiem for a Dream
But you still caught it in the rectum

Right here trapped in the box
Thinkin’
Rap’s all I got
Smoke too much pot
Bones with ?chromes? twisted in knots
Cold vein with thoughts
Bubbling hot
Stoned in the bedroom
Writin’ this poem
Off the phone
Caught a head rush
Smoke clouded my dome
At the end of my ropes
Writing these notes
Hopin’ to float
Above this bullshit
Pull spliffs blowin’ the ghosts
The sky’s the limit
Stay high with vision
Visualize the body righteous
Lost cipher
The mind’s wisdom
Helped me through life’s transitions
I’m in a tight position
Hungry-ass shit flippin’
With no sex or wretch
This stress got my chest a mess
Breathless
I’m vexed
Trying to escape out of the depths
Of hell’s nest
So I rest inhale
The trauma blessed
And let the stress exhale
Through clouds of cess
My mind foggy
And body wet
Poppin’ shotties
Shot straight through the nostril
Cloudy with thoughts of ill type menageries
When pops used to tell me
“it wasn’t like this
With drugs and sex
Up in my day”
But poppy
Shit really changed
Yo niggas is losing their minds
And I can’t really blame them
I’m losing my brain
In these times
And I’m angered with hangovers
Ready to ride off a cliff with a Range Rover
Like I was fuckin’ Thelma & Louise
And if I had a trigger I would squeeze
But ?leave?
Blow my whole head off and bleed
Trying to get that same feeling
Every day pain killing”

Madonna – Devil Pray

Take my sins and wash them away
Teach me how to pray
I’ve been stranded here in the dark
Take these walls away

I’ve been swimming in the ocean
Till I’m almost drowned
Give me something I can believe in
Teach me how to pray

And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whiskey

Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned

And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid

Forever been lost with no way home

Yeah we can run
And we can hide
But we won’t find the answers
If you’ll go down and you’ll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul,
Then we should travel all together
And make the devil pray

Mother Mary, can’t you help me?
Cuz I’m gone astray
All the angels that were around me
Have all flown away

The ground beneath my feet’s getting warmer
Lucifer is near
Holding on, but I’m getting weaker
Watch me disappear

And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whiskey

Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned

And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid

Forever been lost with no way home

Yeah we can run
And we can hide
But we won’t find the answers
If you’ll go down and you’ll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul,
Then we could travel all together
And make the devil pray

Ooh ooh ooh sing hallelujah
Ooh ooh ooh save my soul
Ooh ooh ooh the devil was here to fool ya
Until my story’s told

Tool – Rosetta Stoned

Biisi viitannee LSD:n käyttöön ja Keenan intoutuu kriittisehköön sävyyn laulamaan isommasta maailman ymmärtämisestä?!? Ei mitkään yksiselitteiset sanat.

“All righty then
Picture this if you will

10 to 2 am, X, yogi DMT, and a box of krispy kreme’s in my “need to know” pose just outside of area 51, contemplating the whole chosen people thingy when just then a flaming stealth banana split the sky like one would hope but never really expect to see in a place like this. Cutting right angle donuts on a dime and stopping right at my birkinstocks, and me yelping “holy fuckin’ shit!”

Then the X file being, looking like some kinda blue green Jackie chan, with Isabella Rossellini lips, and breath that reeked of vanilla chig champa, did a slow mo matrix decent outta the butt end of the banana vessel, and hovered above my bug eyes, my gaping jaw, and my sweaty L. Ron Hubbard upper lip and all I could think was, “I hope uncle martin here doesn’t notice that I pissed my fuckin pants!!”

So light in his way, like an apparition, he’d had me crying out…
“Fuck me!
It’s gotta be
The dead head
Chemistry
The blotter got right on top o’ me
Got me seeing E mutha fuckin T!”

And after calming me down with some orange slices and some fetal spooning, E.T. revealed to me his singular purpose. He said. “you are the chosen one. The one who will deliver the message. A message of hope for those who choose to hear it, and a warning for those who do not.” Me! The chosen one. They chose me!!!! And I didn’t even graduate from fuckin’ high school!!

(You’d better listen)

Then he looked right through me with somniferous almond eyes
Don’t even know what that means
Must remember to write it down
This is so real
Like the time Dave floated away
See, my heart is pounding cuz this shit never happens to me.

Can’t breathe right now.

It was so real
Like I woke up in Wonderland
All sorta terrifying
I don’t wanna be all alone
While I tell this story
And can anyone tell me why y’all sound like peanuts parents?
Will I ever be coming down?
This is so real
Finally it’s my lucky day
See, my heart is racing cuz this shit never happens to me

Can’t breathe right now.

You believe me don’t you?
Please believe what I’ve just said
See, the dead ain’t touring and this wasn’t all in my head
See they took me by the hand
And invited me right in
Then they showed me something
I don’t even know where to begin

Strapped down to my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I’m out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead?
Can’t remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

Overwhelmed as one would be placed in my position
Such a heavy burden now to be the one
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending
To write it down for all the world to see
But I forgot my pen
Shit the bed again
Typical

Strapped down to my bed
Feet cold and eyes red
I’m out of my head
Am I alive? Am I dead.
Sunkist and Sudafed
Gyroscopes and infrared
Won’t help. I’m brain dead
Can’t remember what they said
God damn, shit the bed

Can’t remember what they said to me
Can’t remember what they said to make me out to be a hero
Can’t remember what they said
Bob help me
Can’t remember what they said

We don’t know and we won’t know
God damn shit the bed”

The Simpletones – I Like Drugs

Hurmaavasti nimetty punkkipumppu teki 70-luvun lopulla varsin tarttuvan rallin, jossa tekee selväksi mieltymyksensä :-D

“I need a joint before my next class
But if I come in stoned they get all over my ass
Yesterday I went to school dusted
Everyone tells me that I will soon be busted

but I like drugs, I like drugs
making me high, making me high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask

Everyone tell me that I’m a born loser
A fool, a disgraceful drug abuser
They say that I’m a lost and lowly child
When I turn 19 Just watch me run wild

I like drugs, I like drugs
Making me high, oh so high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask me nothing

I like drugs, I like drugs
Making me high, oh so high
I like drugs, I like drugs
Don’t ask me why, don’t ask me why, don’t ask me about nothing at all”

The Offspring – Mota

Every day, well it’s the same
That bong that’s on the table starts to call my name
I take a hit and zone out again
I’ll be paranoid and hungry by a quarter to ten
Watching reruns on my TV
I’m laughing off my ass at three’s company
I don’t now if I’m understood
but hearing Jimmy buffett never sounded so good
Your memory’s gone and so is your life (your life)
Mota boy
But losing out just never felt so right
Your enemy’s you and so is your life (your life)
Mota boy
But losing out might feel okay all night
Mota
I’m driving down to the Barrio
Going 15 miles an hour cause I’m already stoned
Give the guy a twenty and wait in the car
He tosses me a baggie then he runs real far
I take a hit but it smells like a clove
Oh fuck I got a baggie of oregano
This ritual is destroying me
But I guess it could be worse
It could be methedrine
Your memory’s gone and so is your life (your life)
Mota boy
But losing out just never felt so right
Your enemy’s you and your couch is your life (your life)
Mota boy
But losing out might take
Losing out might take you all night
Mota
Losing out might feel okay all night
Yeah losing out might feel okay all life

Jimi Hendrix – Are You Experienced?

Biisissä on aika selkeästi kyse trippailusta? Hendrix kysyy, että joko sinä olet kokenut? Hän oli.

“If you can just get your mind together
uh-then come on across to me
We’ll hold hands and then we’ll watch the sunrise
From the bottom of the sea
But first, are you experienced?
Uh-have you ever been experienced-uh?
Well, I have”

Tom Petty – Girl on LSD

Biisissä lauletaan kaverista, joka rakastuu aina huumeita käyttäviin naisiin.

“I was in love with a girl on marijuana
She said, “If I’m not stoned I don’t wanna”
But she got so paranoid
Her place I would avoid
I was in love with a girl on marijuana

I was in love with a girl on cocaine
She had everything going but her brain
We?d talk endlessly for hours
But by morning it’d go sour
I was in love with a girl on cocaine”
