"Into the Red" as written by and Christopher John Cheney....
Into the red, the hippie dream is dead
Like a light bulb blowin' a fuse inside me head

Gimme some speed to burn
Don't wanna wait my turn
And now the parties over but not a lesson learnt

Into the red
I'm goin' out of my head
Gotta go now but I'll never slow down
When the world outside is red
Into the red
Into the red
Into the red

Into the red, the sixties dream is dead
Like a low down juvenile getting high instead

Gimme some speed to burn
Don't wanna wait my turn
And now the parties over but not a lesson learnt

Into the red
I'm goin' out of my head
Gotta go now but I'll never slow down
When the world outside is red
Into the red
Into the red
Into the red

Into the red, the hippie dream is dead
Like a light bulb blowin' a fuse inside me head

Gimme some speed to burn
Don't wanna wait my turn
And now the parties over but not a lesson learnt

Into the red
I'm goin' out of my head
Gotta go now but I'll never slow down
When the world outside is red
Into the red
Into the red
Into the red

    General CommentI think it's pretty obvious what this song is about. In the 60's drugs were thought of as something that would enlighten and bring about a greater sense of everything around you, physically, spiritually, whatever. Nowadays it's just about kids getting lit and laughing at cartoons.
