I got some shit for sale you ought to get some
You'll be the highest guy who ever lived
It might kill you man you won't even know it
I can feel your best sense starting to give
You take the chance you lose control
The lessons from your past you need to know
Take one more hit of base
That shit is gonna blow up in your face
Ripping glass shards through your heart
You got a problem man you ought to fix it
You think you're getting high well guess again
Until it's too late well you won't even know it
You better stop before you hit a dead end
When you out on the street
A different story every time we meet
You been hanging with a different crowd
Your acting tough and your talking loud
It's getting worse for you every single day
a bad habit and it won't go away
Where you gone where's my best friend
I can't help you cause you won't let me in

    General CommentA song on drug addiction. I think it tells of a person they know that they original knew that took up drugs and now is a completely different person. Change for the worse.

    General CommentIf you think this is a straight edge song you are wrong, Pennywise are not straight edge and I know some of them really like to drink (Fletcher, Jason did...). Freebase means freebase cocaine. One of the worst thing to be addicted to, very dangerous for your heart, even more than snortable cocaine, extremely addictive and can ruin you financially easily. Or just give you a heart attack or stroke at 25 and end up in a wheelchair and many other things like that. Freebase cocaine (aka crack) is not to mess with unless you don't know how to get some again and get offered a hit randomly at a show ;)

    But seriously, better not to even try, I was addicted to it for 6 months, I put about 8000 dollars into it...could have paid almost half my student loans back right away if I didn't, oh well, live and learn from your mistakes, which is what I did, thanks to Pennywise, Propahandhi, Lagwagon, Bad Religion and a bunch of other less known harrdcore punk/melo hardcore punk/punk rock and even thrash metlal bands.

    General CommentIt's about the art of drugs- guy tries drugs for the first time, even though he knows it might kill him. And then he takes it too far, like all freebasers. He's not the same person you once knew, just a hollow shell of a human being who's better off dead
