Alcoholism and addiction are tearing people apart...Sobriety is healing people...This song is a true and precautionary tale to those getting involved, getting worse or getting closer to getting Help...Please be honest with yourself first.
Fresh out the psych ward for the fourth time Still not convinced that out of my mind But I know I'm the creator of my worst crime Wanting to murk myself I know I needed help with my mental health Felt like a stealth bomber hiding my ganja Every morning drinking 40's with my Taka vodka Choppin hella lines to secure my balance for the days teeter totter A pill popper that needs mad Visine and Binaca Hella kray but I couldn't tell how far gone I was Feeling ok when I caught my first morning buzz Puzzled by blackouts and lack of love I could barely grub cuz I'm constantly throwing up Nasty lifestyle and I hated ME
(Chorus) It's the DOPE & the DRANK Getting free liqour and dank Think it's all good but it really ain't, I been homeless and pissed off-no phone just lost Broke with no job-depressed with no chick and no car Knowing my next home got to be behind bars, It's the DOPE & the DRANK Getting free liqour and dank Think it's all good but it really ain't
(2nd verse) When I was in my mid 20's my boss brought me to a meeting When it was over he asked me if I was going to continue to keep drinking I was tripping like..."YUP" He was like you probably should I thought it was all to the good He said only because I can see your DT's and if you stop you might seize I was shocked Then I went home popped some tops-took some shots-smoked some pot Then I thought I wouldn't even trip G I had my world on lock D When I accidentally cc'd my whole company Said I was going to do something like...'END MY LIFE' Then I was like now I stop and detox I said aight I got out and kept getting fated cuz I hated my past Spent way too many days and nights crying Just hoping I could find a way to laugh I didn't realize this disease was trying to kill my ass
(Chorus) It's the DOPE & the DRANK Getting free liqour and dank Think it's all good but it really ain't, I been homeless and pissed off-no phone just lost Broke with no job-depressed with no chick and no car Knowing my next home gotta be behind bars, It's the DOPE & the DRANK Getting free liqour and dank Think it's all good but it really ain't (3rd verse) After hundreds of blackouts and thousands of hangovers... I don't know how and I didn't want to stay sober I'm truly powerless in this darkness A power I can't harness I Love God but struggle with grudges and heartless hardships Trying to retrain my brain-knowing I can change... Like GOD heals us Plus my life of being a drunky junky really sucks I'm tired of singing that same sad song I've been living with these addictions for way too long It's time to move on and it's time to stay strong One little relapse can take us out the game quick like a pon And this losing game pushes away fans, fam and friends With drugs and alcohol all roads lead to dead ends WITH DRUGS AND ALCOHOL ALL ROADS LEAD TO DEAD ENDS It's the DOPE & the DRANK that got me losing everythang I'm fin to take the reigns Do new things and conquer my demons that remain Instead of doing the right thing-I do the same thing...Naw Each day is whatever you turn it into And remember...
TO THY OWNSELF BE TRUE
