Your silver blade, your ace of spade
Ain't gonna help you when your coffin's late
If you want it, can you get it
And you got it, and you're gone

Then duck your head down the bend
Ain't lied to the devil when he's your only friend
If you want it, can you get it
And you got it, and you're gone

Hell is blue, I'm telling you
But your heart is black like I always knew
If you want it, can you get it
And you got it, and you're gone

You're looking good, you're looking fine
Throw the chicken and break the wine
Well you say it once and you say it twice
Everything is nice when you're throwing the rice

Your ace of spade, your silver blade
Ain't gonna help you when your coffin's late
If you want it, can you get it
And you got it, and you're gone

You can hide your head around the bend
You can't lie to the devil when he's your only friend
If you want it, can you get it
And you got it, and you're gone

    My OpinionI'm not sure if Beck ever experimented with drugs, or had a friend that did (the drug being heroin) but the song seems to be about an intervention.
