High Society
-Rico Pabón

Verse 1
Wow everybody's high now
some fly with pride in public while others hide so no one will find out
some make any excuse for anything they use
some function among us just fine and some just walk around confused
and some overuse the green to overcome their blues
and some might pop a pill to help them tighten up their screws
prescribed by Doctor Who and it’s FDA approved
now it’s crushed up into a powder base snorted and chased with booze
now those are usually the ones you see on the evening news
one minute they’re fine then they lose their mind and blow more than a fuse or do some other madness that not a man can excuse
but the doctor was watching not stopping them
and knew they were popping them by the twos
refilling prescriptions like it’s all they know how to do
sometimes even of doctors have their actions too
not to mention them politicians who push legislation through
to let the pharmaceutical companies experiment on you

1, 2, who got them drugs brand new
3, 4, and you conveniently start wanting more
5, 6, your brain changes and play some strange tricks
7, 8, now you know you got to get your mind straight
9, 10, and you swear you’ll never do it again
11, 12, midnight strikes you’re thinking ‘maybe just now and then’
a dozen ways to cover up your sorrows,
to erase your yesterday’s and help you sleep through your tomorrows

Verse 2
Caution, because it's also common
anybody can get anything, it's like a trip to Baskin-Robbins
and any problems you might have there's a remedy claiming to solve it
but you might switch afflictions because addiction’s a door that keeps revolving you've got drugs from the street that you inject, snort or eat
and you'll find drugs in every corner liquor store and pharmacy
let's talk about two or three, some we know to a degree
‘cause most of us have some someone using in our immediate families
we know that crack and heroin both cure the desire to live
and there so strong that to get it mothers will give up their kids
there’s straight coke for the folks that got the dough to blow on blow
ecstasy, LSD, PCP, man, I could just go and go
then there’s methamphetamines, known as crank, speed and crystal meth make you violent and aggressive like you want to fight to the death
and bite through the flesh,
there’s Oxycontin, Percodan and Percocet
to purposefully make you depressed designed by request

1, 2, who got them drugs brand new
3, 4, and you conveniently start wanting more
5, 6, your brain changes and play some strange tricks
7, 8, now you know you got to get your mind straight
9, 10, and you swear you’ll never do it again
11, 12, midnight strikes you’re thinking ‘maybe just now and then’
a dozen ways to cover up your sorrows,
to erase your yesterday’s and help you sleep through your tomorrows

Verse 3
So meet Anne next
doctors prescribed her Xanax
‘cause she said she felt anxious about the condition of the planet
because every time she watched the news, her heart could barely stand it
her compassion and anguish mixed with her anger and it made her frantic
now Anne was not a fool she saw clearly through the media's antics
and paid close attention so she knew the problems were gigantic
but everyone else around seem to feel like all was fantastic
fast food, slow money, good weed and bad habits
she started her dosage and at first it worked like black magic
but when she spilled her last few pills she felt so ill she half panicked
couldn’t sleep, head pounding, appetite decreased,
stomach cramping and she could hear the sound of her own heartbeat
she got so suspicious of any knock on the door, started locking herself in
bought a Glock, cocked it and kept it in her drawer
afraid of her neighbors but no longer bothered by wars
get her refills and she still feels more anxious than ever before in this high society

I’m so high y’all look like little ants from up here and all I’s trying to find was just some peace of mind now I’m tied up, prisoner to this puppeteer
