"Born Too Slow" as written by Scott Kirkland, Ken Jordan and Wes Boreland....
Just like seventies goofballs
He's waiting on last calls
Well listen to Method Man
'Cause if you leave him the last line
Don't leave him the brown kind
Born just a little too slow
Just a little too slow

Just a little too
Oh your lights are burning too
Just a little too
Oh just a little too

'Cause if he picks up the wrong kind
You'll know you'll be turning blind
Gun at your head
Lay him down just the wrong way
You know that he's turning gray
Born just a little too slow

Oh your lights are burning too,
Burning too, burning too slow.
Oh your lights are burning too, just a little too.
Just a little too

Your lights are burning too
Just a little too
Oh your lights are burning too
Just a little to slow

'Cause if you leave him the last line
Don't leave him the brown kind
Well listen to Method Man

So if you're leavin' him callin'
You know you'll be fallin'
Lights are burning low
Your stars are burnin' gold
Lights are burning low.
Your stars are burnin' gold

Born just a little too

    General CommentYeah.
    It's definately meth.

    When meth is brown, it's not the "good stuff."
    The clearer it is, the better quality.

    If you leave someone the "brown kind," you're leaving them the shit that no one wants.

    General Commentcould this song maybe be about drugs?
    "Cause if you leave him the last line
    Don’t leave him the brown kind
    Born just a little to slow.."
    some people snort heroin which is known to some as 'brown'
    a'la pulp fiction...

    General CommentHah, I could barely guess at the lyrics to this song from line one, "seventies goofballs"?

    Anyway, I would guess that it is indeed drug related because I found a censored version of this song which blots out "last line", "brown kind" and the entire second verse, which would suggest questionable content. Also, heroin is also called brownstone. I don't know if that's the reference in Pulp Fiction, though.

    General CommentYou can never get high or born fast enough. Once you speed you don't do anything else as much as that.
