heroin......name a song inspired by it.......i'll start


The La's---There She Goes

There she goes
There she goes again
Racing thru' my brain
And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains
There she blows
There she blows again
Pulsing thru' my vein
And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains
There she goes, there she goes again
She calls my name, pulls my train
No-one else could heal my pain
And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains
There she goes
There she goes again
Chasing down my lane
And I just can't contain
This feelin' that remains

32. As you wish...
Love - Signed D.C.

Sometimes I feel so lonely
My comedown I'm scared to face
I've pierced my skin again, Lord
And no one cares for me

My soul belongs to the dealer
He keeps my mind as well
I play the part of the leecher
And no one cares for me
For me, cares for me

Look out Joe, I'm falling
I can't unfold my arms
I've got one foot down in the graveyard
No one cares for me, cares for me
Cares for me
Signed, D.C.

2. Soul Coughing - "Houston"
Edited on Sun May-30-04 12:16 AM by Spider Jerusalem
I met a girl on roller skates
She had a spare bag,
she had lost some weight
Where I used to work,
she was a waitress
She proposed a trade,
it was generous

She's gone to Houston,
feel like I'm floating in a warm sea
And if she finds out when she comes back,
I know that she will leave me

Oh I heard a sound, it was a dull crack
It was a clock hand,
It was snapping back
Oh it wasn't hers,
it was the dope's kiss
I'll take the blame upon my shoulder,
I just love to feel like this

Roller boogie, motherfucker

5. Cold Turkey - John Lennon
The other Beatles were afraid to touch the song, so it became his first solo hit.

7. Hurt. Johnny Cash did a great rendition on his last album...
I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hold
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything


What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here


What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

9. Before They Make Me Run - Rolling Stones.
Keith probably wrote this in rehab - literally. Not to mention facing the possibility of a prison sentence.

Worked in bars and sideshows along the twilight zone
Only a crowd can make you feel so alone
And it really hit home
Booze and pills and powders, you can choose your medicine
Well it's another goodbye to another good friend

After all is said and done
Gotta move while it's still fun
Let me walk before they make me run
After all is said and done
I gotta move, it's still fun
I'm gonna walk before they make me run

Watched the taillights fading, there ain't a dry eye in the house
They're laughing and singing
Started dancing and drinking as I left town
Gonna find my way to heaven, `cause I did my time in hell
I wasn't looking too good but I was feeling real well

After all is said and done
I gotta move I had my fun
Let us walk before they make me run

After all is said and done
I did alright, I had my fun
I will walk before they make me run

In "Let It Loose", Mick Jagger addresses Keith's addiction
That may be why it's one of Jagger's most tender vocals

16. The lyrics (Let It Loose)
Who's that woman on your arm all dressed up to do you harm
And I'm hip to what she'll do, give her just about a month or two.
Bit off more than I can chew and I knew what it was leading to,
Some things, well, I can't refuse,
One of them, one of them the bedroom blues.
She delivers right on time, I can't resist a corny line,
But take the shine right off you shoes,
Carryin', carryin' the bedroom blues.
Oo...

In the bar you're getting drunk, I ain't in love, I ain't in luck.
Hide the switch and shut the light, let it all come down tonight.
Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger,
Some face you'll never see no more.

Let it all come down tonight.
Keep those tears hid out of sight, let it loose, let it all come down.

13. the velvet underground- "heroin"
i think that this one may have been inspired by such:

HEROIN
" I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
'Cos it makes me feel like I'm a man
When I put a spike into my vein
And I'll tell ya, things aren't quite the same
When I'm rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus' son
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I have made the big decision
I'm gonna try to nullify my life
'Cos when the blood begins to flow
When it shoots up the dropper's neck
When I'm closing in on death
And you can't help me now, you guys
And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a walk
And I guess that I just don't know
And I guess that I just don't know

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I'd sail the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
In a sailor's suit and cap
Away from the big city
Where a man can not be free
Of all of the evils of this town
And of himself, and those around
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
Because a mainer to my vein
Leads to a center in my head
And then I'm better off and dead
Because when the smack begins to flow
I really don't care anymore
About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
And everybody puttin' everybody else down
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

'Cos when the smack begins to flow
Then I really don't care anymore
Ah, when the heroin is in my blood
And that blood is in my head
Then thank God that I'm as good as dead
Then thank your God that I'm not aware
And thank God that I just don't care
And I guess I just don't know
And I guess I just don't know

43. Lou Reed's "I'm Waiting for the Man"
I'm waiting for my man
Twenty-six dollars in my hand
Up to Lexington 125
Feeling sick and dirty, more dead than alive
I'm waiting for my man

Hey, white boy, what you doin' uptown ?
Hey, white boy, you chasin' our women around ?
Oh pardon me sir, it's furthest from my mind
I'm just lookin' for a dear, dear friend of mine
I'm waiting for my man

Here he comes, he's all dressed in black
High-heeled shoes and a big straw hat
He's never early, he's always late
First thing you learn is that you've always got to wait
I'm waiting for my man

Two brownstones, up three flights of stairs
Looks like nobody's pinned you, but nobody cares
He's got the works, gives you sweet taste
Ah, then you've got to split because you've got no time to waste
I'm waiting for my man

Baby, don't you holler, darling don't you bawl and shout
I'm feeling good, and I'm gonna work it all out
I'm feeling good, I'm feeling so fine
Until tomorrow, that's just some other time
I'm waiting for my man

15. "Voodoo" by Godsmack
I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I wanna be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Candles raise my desire
Why I'm so far away
No more meaning to my life
No more reason to stay
Freezin', feelin'
Breathin', breathin'
I'm coming back again

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I wanna be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Hazing clouds rain on my head
Empty thoughts fill my ears
Find my shade by the moonlight
Why my thoughts aren't so clear
Demons dreamin'
Breathe in, breathin'
I'm coming back again

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I wanna be here again
And I don't remember why I came

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I wanna be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I wanna be here again
And I don't remember why I came

I'm not the one who's so far away
When I feel the snake bite enter my veins
Never did I wanna be here again
And I don't remember why I came

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo,
voodoo, voodoo, voodoo, voodoo

So far away,
I'm not the one who's so far away,
I'm not the one who's so far away,
I'm not the one who's so far away.

18. Neil Young - The Needle and the Damage Done
I caught you knockin'
at my cellar door
I love you, baby,
can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle
take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song
because I love the man
I know that some
of you don't understand
Milk-blood
to keep from running out.

I've seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's
like a settin' sun.

20. U2 - Wire
Innocent, and in a sense I am
Guilty of the crime that's now in hand
Such a nice day
Throw your life away
Such a nice day
Let it go

Cold these eyes, I can't believe it
Cold, this heart is slow
Heart is slow

Call me
Such a cold heart
Such a cold man
Watch you tear your self apart

So lay me down
My soul to keep
So lay me down
The longest sleep
Oh, the longest sleep

In I come and out you go you get
Here we are again now, place your bets
Is this the time
The time to win or lose
Is this the time
The time to choose

Cold these eyes, I can't believe it
So deep inside a cold fire
Cold, this heart is slow...

Anytime you're only a kiss away
Won't you do it now
That's right, just keep me going

In some white track
You come the right track
Cartoon cutout
Cut throat bled out
I'm on your side
Be on the both side
I'm alright Jack
You get off my back
I'm no dope
I give you hope
Here's the rope
Here's the rope
Now...swing away

29. "Time Out of Mind" Steely Dan


Son you better be ready for love
On this glory day
This is your chance to believe
What I've got to say

Keep your eyes on the sky
Put a dollar in the kitty
Don't the moon look pretty

Tonight when I chase the dragon
The water will change to cherry wine
And the silver will turn to gold
Time out of mind

I am holding the mystical stone
It's direct from Lasa
Where people are rolling in the snow
Far from the world we know

Children we have it right here
It's the light in my eyes
It's perfection and grace
It's the smile on my face

Tonight when I chase the dragon
The water will change to cherry wine
And the silver will turn to gold
Time out of mind

Children we have it right here
It's the light in my eyes
It's perfection and grace
It's the smile on my face

Tonight when I chase the dragon
the water will change to cherry wine
And the silver will turn to gold
Time out of mind

34. If I could figure out
Edited on Sun May-30-04 01:16 AM by Unperson 309
how to make my CD burner WORK (I've been trying for a year, now!) I'd burn a GREAT party CD filled with DRUG songs!

Here's the lineup! Reasonably in order of date released.


Smoke, Smoke, Smoke (that cigarette) Tobacco
White Lightnin' (whiskey)
Thunder Road (bootlegging) Booze
God Damn (The Pusher) from the Easy Rider album Grass
Don't Step On the Grass, Sam (same album) Ditto
Comin' into Los Angeles (ditto) Smuggling keys (hash?)
Sweet Leaf (Black Sabbath) Grass
Sweet Lorraine Heroin
Signed DC Heroin
Cocaine (Eric Clapton) Coke, natch!
Hotel California (Eagles) Heroin?
Mr Brownstone (Guns 'N' Roses) Black Tar Heroin
Train Kept A Rollin (Aerosmith) Heroin, I think
Smuggler's Blues (From Miami Vice) Cocaine
King Of The Hill Cocaine


Anyone else know of any really good kickin' drug songs? With a nastygood guitar hook and thumpin' backbeat?

Would this be a GREAT CD or *what*? Any help (in either a playlist, or how to burn the sucker) would be deeply appreciated.

(added a couple on edit!)

36. Heroin Girl
By Everclear

I used to know a girl
She had two pierced nipples and a black tattoo
We'd drink that Mexican beer
We'd live on Mexican food
Yes, I wish I could go back
Yes, back in time
Esther used to be the kind of girl that you would never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my disease
She'd do anything
I can hear them talking in the real world
But they don't understand that I'm happy in hell
With my heroin girl
I am losing myself in a white-trash hell
Lost inside a heroin girl
They found her out in the fields
About a mile from home
Her face was warm from the sun
But her body was cold
I heard the policeman say
Just another overdose
Esther used to be the kind of lover you would never leave
She'd do anything to give me what I need for my disease
She would do anything

37. "Sister Morphine" Rolling Stones


(M. Jagger/K. Richards/M. Faithfull)

Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, Sister Morphine, when are you coming round again?
Oh, I don't think I can wait that long
Oh, you see that I'm not that strong

The scream of the ambulance is sounding in my ears
Tell me, Sister Morphine, how long have I been lying here?
What am I doing in this place?
Why does the doctor have no face?

Oh, I can't crawl across the floor
Ah, can't you see, Sister Morphine, I'm trying to score

Well it just goes to show
Things are not what they seem
Please, Sister Morphine, turn my nightmares into dreams
Oh, can't you see I'm fading fast?
And that this shot will be my last

Sweet Cousin Cocaine, lay your cool cool hand on my head
Ah, come on, Sister Morphine, you better make up my bed
'Cause you know and I know in the morning I'll be dead
Yeah, and you can sit around, yeah and you can watch all the
Clean white sheets stained red.

44. Supposedly the Beatles' "Happiness is a Warm Gun"
I need a fix cause I'm going down
Down to the bits that I left uptown
I need a fix cause I'm going down
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun
Mother Superior jump the gun

Happiness is a warm gun
Happiness is a warm gun mama
When I hold you in my arms
And I feel my finger on you trigger
I know nobody can do no harm
Because Happiness is a warm gun mama
Happiness is a warm gun, yes it is
Happiness is a warm, yes it is, gun
Ah, don't you know that
Happiness is a warm gun mama

46. Mamas and the Papas, "Straight Shooter"
Don't get him mad, don't tell no lies.
Don't make him sad and don't pass me by
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Cause I'm a real straight shooter if you know what I mean

You can bring me love, you can hang around.
You can bring me up, don't you bring me down
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Cause I'm a real straight shooter if you know what I mean

I've been searching all night just to find what I'm looking for
Baby, Baby, treat me right or I won't come 'round your door,
no more

You can bring me love, you can hang around.
You can bring me up, don't you bring me down
Baby are you holding, holding anything but me?
Cause I'm a real straight shooter if you know what I mean

I've been searching all night just to find what I'm looking for
Baby, Baby, treat me right or I won't come 'round your door,
no more

Don't get him mad, don't tell no lie.
Don't make me sad, just get me high
Baby what you're holding, that belongs to me
Cause I'm a real straight shooter, I'm a real straight shooter
I'm a real straight shooter, if you know what I mean
If you know what I mean!

50. America: "Horse with No Name"
Supposedly describes a heroin trip?

Horse With No Name
( America )

On the first part of the journey I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

After two days in the desert sun my skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

After nine days I let the horse run free 'cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it's life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

52. Nirvana: Aneurysm
Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and do the twist

Beat me outta me - Beat it! beat it! (x7)
Beat me outta me

Come on over and do the twist
Overdo it and have a fit
Love you so much it makes me sick
Come on over and shoot the shit

Beat me outta me - Beat it! beat it! (x7)
Beat me outta me

She keeps a pumping straight to my heart (x8)
