Light the match
Burn the flower
Leave behind
All the wrong
Why be sad
When happiness can be bought for a little more then free
Modern day prohibition

Are we men?
Are we children?
At what age
Can I choose
How to live?

The only real drug problem is scoring real good drugs
Haven't we
Learned our lesson?
The corner store sells finest Scotch
But who's got uncut powder
We just want what is ours

Dignity, if god created plants and burrs that I find and abuse
Then who the fuck
Are you to judge me?

    General Commentheck yeah it makes a lot of sense. My entire political philosophy can pretty much be summed up by the lines, "Are we men, are we children at what age can I choose how to live?" That is brilliant. I have two corrections though. The lyric is "finer" scotch not "finest." Also he says "bud" not "burr." okay.

    General CommentThe song is about drug legalization. I think it has a beautiful melody and the lyrcis are awesome.

    "The only real drug problem is scoring real good drugs
    Haven't we
    Learned our lesson?"

    I love that part.

    Peace

    Alcohol is just as much a drug as anything else. I don't personally use drugs or condone the use of drugs per se, but what a great point... Alcohol causes more deaths than most if not all other drugs, yet it's a mainstay in western culture?! Anyway, heh, I also don't really say that people shouldn't drink, my point is though -- if i can drink why can't I buy some methamphetamine or something at the store? It's not any worse for me... Nic

    General CommentWow, listened to this song SO many times, i love it and i knew the message it was trying to put across, but when you read it normally it makes perfect sense. NOFX at their best telling it how it is, i must say i dont do drugs but i can see their point and its hard to argue against when you look at it like they have.
