"Pusher" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
And some say
Why you follow something so long
So I asked him
And he convinced me before long
Now its over
And I've seen him, don't come back anymore
And he said...
I need
I don't ask much anymore
I found something

Throw a stone into the water
The ripple is broke
Burn them, baby
Just for holding the cradle too close
Take it all back
Search for justice, don't live there anymore
And he said

I need
I don't ask much anymore
I found something
Yeah

And why do you see me in this way?
The way that I did
I gave him the means to the end
Yes I did
I bothered not to believe in this way
The way that I did
I made him just to see in this way
The way that I did

I need
I don't ask much anymore
I found something

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS KUEL! it's about a boy who holded on to his father for a long time and then right before he dies he says why do you hold on this for so long, and once he lets go, he doesn't take anything for granted and asks why did he have to die. WHY?

    General CommentA pusher is a form of a drug dealer but there are few lines in it that are drug related. It may still be about a drug dealer though. It could be from the viewpoint of a drug dealer in a relationship with a customer or vise versa.

    General CommentI think the song is from the POV of a drug dealer, and the first verse is the drug dealer who, for some reason, doesn't want his client to keep using. So he says 'Don't come back anymore.' The client begs him, saying 'I don't need, I don't ask much anymore.'

    The second verse seems to deal with things fucking up- he throws a stone into the water, but the ripple it creates messes up all the other ripples. Perhaps the stone is the drugs and the ripples the effects? Justice doesn't live there anymore, because the client, who was one a good guy, is now in the gutter because of drugs. Then, once again, the user begs him for more drugs.

    Then, in the third verse, the user ODs, and the dealer sort of shrugs, and goes 'I gave him the shit- what he does with it it his deal.' And when the user ODs, he sees it through the dealer's eyes(I made him just to see in this way)- he sees the real, life-ruining effects of drugs.

    And in the second verse, it should be 'candle' instead of 'cradle'
