Drug War, Black Death

07/05/22





Is this the little boy I carried
Here with a bullet in his head?
Is this his sister right beside him,
Dead?

When did the city get so violent?
When did it turn a bloody mess?
Wasn't this caused by prohibition?
Answer: yes.

Drug War, Black death
Drug War, Black death
Each day grows the link
Street gangs created out of whole cloth
Bringing us death from Murder Inc.

Drug War, Black death
Drug War, Black death
Racists win the day
Packing minorities in hearses
Carting our hopes and dreams away

Is this my homie with a chest wound
Blood pooling slowly on his lap?
Never again will I believe in
Drug War crap

Drug War, Black death
Drug War, Black death
Each day grows the link
Street gangs created out of whole cloth
Bringing us death from Murder Inc.

Drug War, Black death
Drug War, Black death
When will we think twice?
Drug Law incentivizes dealing
Leading to homicide and vice.

When They Ask You for some Pee

07/02/22





When they ask you for some pee
Tell them no 'cause you are free
Free to use what nature grows
Both shrooms and plants

Should they ask you for a piss
Tell them no and let them kiss
Kiss your ass because they're full
Of grade-A shit

Being born on plant earth
Shrooms and plants are yours by birth
Show them what your freedom's worth
Refuse to pee

Boom Chickadee

Boom-chickadee-boom-chickadee
Chick-chick churri
Your drug war is crazy, as crazy can be
It banishes godsends that grow at our feet
Till bad vibes and loneliness slowly accrete
Till bad vibes and loneliness slowly accrete

Boom-chickadee-boom-chickadee
Chick-chick churrod
The coca plant, as per the Incas, is God
It sharpens your prose till your fame is widespread
As Jules Verne would tell you if he were not dead
As Jules Verne would tell you if he were not dead

Boom-chickadee-boom-chickadee
Chick-chick-ka-ripe
I'd like to smoke opium straight from a pipe
To travel to lands seen by Lovecraft and Poe
Though racist drug warriors always say no
Though racist drug warriors always say no

Boom-chickadee-boom-chickadee
Chick-chick-ker-breech
The mushrooms around us have something to teach
They grow in my garden, I'm fain to partake
Though Chimney-Pot Bennet says Put on the Brake
Though Chimney-Pot Bennet says Put on the Brake

Boom-chickadee-boom-chickadee
Chick-chick-hurray
My anger subsides with some MDMA
If only Vlad Putin would follow my lead
There'd be much less bloodshed and cynical greed
There'd be much less bloodshed and cynical greed

Boom-chickadee-boom-chickadee
Chick-chick-ker-ray
I'll use what I want so get out of my way
I'd rather do opium coca and such
Than Big Pharma pills that addict me too much
Than Big Pharma pills that addict me too much

Boom-chickadee-boom-chickadee
Chick-chick-ka-runk
Forgive me for saying your drug war is junk
It's dumbness incarnate to demonize plants
I turn a deaf ear to your 'just say no' chants
I turn a deaf ear to your 'just say no' chants
