i'm puttin the hero back in heroin
cuz i'm happier walkin dead
stickin it in
i never grew up and i'm sure i never will
and i'm sure that what i'm sayin is irresponsible
but i'm never havin kids
and i'm never gettin hitched
cuz i'm already married like a scratch to the itch
they tried to tell me in school i'm a thug
i said fuck this piece of shit school
cuz i'm on the drug

gimme heroin
jackin up again
gimme heroin
under my skin
gimme heroin
'cuz i'll never win
so gimme heroin

graduate to I.V. league
steppin up from pills
intentional overdose-
or just for thrills?
everyone is sayin that i'm just bones and skin
but it really is my soul that's coming thread bare and thin
i'm feelin the sickness
i can't hold it down
it's been too long with
but without it i'm down
i don't wanna live cuz i'm fed up with it
but i blame the CIA for importing this shit

gimme heroin
jackin up again
gimme heroin
under my skin
gimme heroin
'cuz i'll never win
so gimme heroin
Social Sin

i feel the warmth of the after glow
a thoudsand years drift by
but i don't know
the land of nod knocks on the door
and offers up just a little more...
H-E-R-O-I-N!

gimme heroin
jackin up again
gimme heroin
under my skin
gimme heroin
'cuz i'll never win
so gimme heroin
evils begin

heroin
jackin' up again
gimme heroin
its under my skin
gimme heroin
'cuz i'll never win
so gimme heroin

    General CommentI.V. League lol!!
    Yeah this song is great, I've never done heroin but this song makes it sound so good. I like how he blames the CIA.

    General CommentEzra has had a lot of problems with dope in the past.

    This song is an incredible love/hate story. If you've ever known a junkie, you'd understand.

    General Comment@seanybones,
    are you serious? do you really think that this song idolizes heroin? the song is only about how he's given up now that he's married to heroin.

    this drug ruins the lives of countless people, i know a person that used to go to college and had many friends, now he has no real home, no one returns his calls and everyone knows not to 'loan' him any money.

    look around and think about it, if you still think heroin is cool you're either really young and inexperienced or just plain stupid.

    General Commenti acutually once read a book that was written by an ex-CIA and FBI agent and it said that the goverment really does have a hand in this drug world and the "war on drugs" is just a front. really interesting book. you can only get it over seas. it's actually illegal to sell in america. i can't recall the title of it but it was a thick, thick book full of crazy information

    General Comment@ alargefarva

    hey i aint lookin to cause an argument but i think your wrong this song aint about the troubles of heroin cause you know old ezra crack is a proud crack smoker n does alot of other stuff n all that "given up" "my life is shit" "fuck the world im gonna die" stuff well thats kinda like a characteristic of crack rocksteady try sum choking victim or leftover crack songs you see what i mean this song is about how heroin helps him escape from all the shit he has to crawl thr in life and atreyuxfatax damn straight bro the cia and the feds import cocaine n stuff and the put up a whole war on drugs thing the cias other tactics r also interesting look up mk ultra if they can go thru with shit like that why not drug trafficing?

    General CommentYou're either fucking retarded or 14, everyone knows this song is about the troubles of heroin. How could "i don't wanna live cuz i'm fed up with it" be in this song if it wasn't?

    General CommentI used to inject heroin and I can tell you that the relationship he has with dope is pretty much what most junkies feel. My friend and I used to listen to the crack rock steady seven on the way to and from the spots.

    General Commentsweet remembered my password from 2006, I love leftover crack and this is my 2nd favorite song next to "heroin or suicide", obviously both of these songs seem to me to point to how ridiculous it is that these are our options, too much of a coward to commit suicide so I have drugs to fall back on
