Smashing Pumpkins – A Girl Named Sandoz

The Smashing Pumpkins coveroi hienosti tämän The Animalsin biisin uransa alkuvaiheessa singlen b-puolelle.

Biisissä kerrotaan tytöstä, joka opettaa kertojan pahoille tavoille. 1938 Albert Hoffman keksi LSD:n Sandoz-nimisessä laboratoriossa.

“Well I met a girl called Sandoz
And she taught me many many things
Good things, very good things
Sweet things

I met her on a Sunday morning
It was hot though the snow lay on the ground
Strange things, very strange things
My mind has wings

Sandoz Sandoz
Will you tell me no?
Sandoz Sandoz
Will you tell me why?
We could all learn something from your mind, yeah

She is very old yet many think she’s young
One kiss from her and you know your time has come
Good times, for all times
Sandoz”

Gravediggaz – Defective Trip (Trippin’)

Trippailu ei aina mene putkeen.

“want to see something that could make ya sick?
Stand in front of jets on the Gaza strip
I used to take puffs from a car, jet in my garage
Then I get blitzed from the charge
I felt my head swayin, my eyes in a daze
Felt and violence and off balance I got drugged for days
A room full of smog, I dipped it in my dart
then I threws it at my dog
I need another hit, Hurry, Quick! Hurry, Quick!
My high’s takin signs and the shit’s about to kick
I’m gaspin’ for air, my vision disappears,
I’m blinkin’ and I’m thinkin’ Yeah!
Word, cause that’s the shit I was hawkin
So stay the fuck away ’cause I spit when I’m talkin
Stupid, Stupid, Stupid, Stupid Punk
When I’m trippin’

Chorus

Some people like cheeba, some like brew,
I get mad lifted off four gallons of glue,
Pretty soon I spin like a top, In the middle of the room
And the shit won’t stop!
Now What I see when I triiiiippppp…
The rats in the basement all start to flip,
All through my building, from door to door,
I swear there’s a fire, so I piss on the floor,
Now down the corridor was old fat Ned,
Schemin’ on a blowjob from a crackhead,
He was like ‘hey want to piece little man?’
I was like ‘Yo, I’m better off with my haaaannnndddd!!!!!!!’
Oh shit, reality returns,
I need another hit but the glue won’t burn,
I’m cukoo and murderous, Just plain nuts,
smokin’ sodium menthol cigarette butts,
and trippin’…

Chorus
(yo, pass it man)

86 on the strip, and yo’ my hands was…,
the reaper, the keeper, my niggaz let’s get… i put the high on the stimuli,
I’m like the two face, like the signs of gemini,
My head keeps on spinnin’, constantly continuin’
Two tabs of mescaline, fucks up my adrenaline,
I’m in a… Uhhhh… I can’t escape it,
It’s like… uggghh… goddamit I hate it!
So take it like a (brine), from the grapes of a vine,
The wine, it fucks up my mind, everytime,
I’m goin’, and all I want to be doin’ is bonin’,
But like a dope fiend character I’m…,
I’m stuck, fl-fl-flipping, sssslipping…
I’m tripping…

Life of the…
Can be stopped by accident
When you’re tripping
(Cuz I’m trippin’)”

The Offspring – What Happened to You?

“What in the world happened to you?

Before you started tokin’,
You used to have a brain (Hey!).
But you don’t get even the simplest of thing. (Hey!)
I can draw a picture, (Hey!)
Or even use my hands, (Hey!)
I try to explain but you just don’t understand.

Man you’re really losin’ it, (Hey…)
And you’ve really done a lot of junk now. (Hey…)
But you keep abusin’ it,
What in the world happened to you?

It’s bad enough you do it, you do it to yourself, (Hey!)
But taking someone with you well you know that’s something else. (Hey!)
I say I’m not that kind of person,
I’m not that kind of man. (Hey!)
I try to explain but you just don’t understand.

Man you’re really losin’ it, (Hey…)
And you’ve really done a lot of junk now. (Hey…)
But you keep abusin’ it,
What in the world happened to you?

I might be sympathetic or cut a little slack, (Hey!)
If I thought that you were willing to give a little back. (Hey!)
But you do it in the morning,
You do it in the night. (Hey!)
You lie to refrain from just facing your life.
So I’ll see you man tomorrow,
You’ll be gackin’ up again. (Hey!)
I’ll see you in a coffin by the time your wad is spent. (Hey!)
I think of all the times that I tried to lend a hand. (Hey!)
I try to explain but you just don’t understand.

Man you’re really losin’ it, (Hey…)
And you’ve really done a lot of junk now. (Hey…)
But you keep abusin’ it,
What in the world happened to you?

What in the world happened to,
What in the world happened to,
What in the world happened to you?”

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”
