"Houston" as written by and Michael/steinberg Doughty....
I met a girl on roller skates
She had a spare bag, she had lost some weight

Where I used to work, she was a waitress
She proposed a trade, it was generous
She's gone to Houston, feel like I'm floating in a warm sea
And if she finds out when she comes back, I know that she wil leave me

Oh I heard a sign, it was a dull crack
It was a clock hand, It was snapping back
Oh it wasn't her's, it was the dope's kiss
I'll take the blame upon my shoulder, I just love to feel like this

Roller Boogie, motherfucker

    General CommentI always thought it was about him hiding his heroin use from a girlfriend.

    General Commentdude, it's like doughty warped back into the 70's and then started foolin' around with this skinny chick.. then she left town for a week or so and he needed more sex so he fooled around with this other fly beotch.. and then he's sayin' "i dig this drama, bro" and then he says "word!".

    General CommentI don't what yiggie is talking about but this is song it for sure about:

    1) Getting herion: "She had a spare bag ... She proposed a trade, it was generous "

    2) Getting high: "She's gone to Houston, feel like I'm floating in a warm sea "

    3) And knowing he should not do this but not caring: "And if she finds out when she comes back, I know that she wil leave me " followed by "I'll take the blame upon my shoulder, I just love to feel like this "
