"Morphine" as written by and Michael Joe Jackson....
He got flat baby
Kick in the back baby
A heart attack baby
I need your body

A hot kiss honey
He's just a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
So unrelying

I'm such a swine baby
All down the line daddy
I hate your kind baby
So unreliable

A hot buzz baby
He's one of us baby
Another drug baby
You so desire

Trust in me
Trust in me
Put all your trust in me
You're doin' morphine

Hoo!

They got place baby
Kicked in the face baby
You hate your race baby
You're just a liar

Your every lick baby
Your dog's a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
You soul survivor

She never cut from me
She never cut baby
I had to work baby
You just a rival

Always to please daddy
Right up and leave daddy
You're throwing shame daddy
So undesirable

Trust in me
Just in me
Put all your trsut in me
You're doin' morphine

Goin' babe

Relax
This won't hurt you
Before I put it in
Close your eyes and count to ten

Don't cry
I won't convert you
There's no need to dismay
Close your eyes and drift away

Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking demerol
Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking demerol

He's tried
Hard to convince her
To be over what he had
Today he wants it twice as bad
Don't cry
I won't resent you
Yesterday you had his trust
Today he's taking twice as much

Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking demerol
Hee-hee-hee
Demerol
Demerol
Oh my Oh God it's Demerol
Hee
Oooh

Oh!

He got shit baby
Your dog's a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
You are a liar

Is truth a game daddy
To win the fame baby
It's all the same baby
You're so reliable

Trust in me
Trust in me
Put all your trust in me
She's doin' morphine

Hoo!

You just sit around just talkin' nothing
You're takin' morphine
Hoo!
Go'on baby
You just sit around just talking about it
You're takin' morphine
Hoo-hoo!
Just sit around just talking nothing about it
You're takin' morphine
You just sit around just talking about it
You're taking morphine
You just sit around just talkin' nothin'
And takin' morphine

Hoo-hoo
I'm going down baby
You're talkin' Morphine

Go'on baby!
Hoo!
Hoo!
Morphine!
Do it!
Hoo!
He's takin' morphine
Morphine!
Morphine!

    General CommentWords can't describe how much I love this song.
    The slow middle section can actually make me cry, it's gorgeous. Completely amazing.
    I love the balance between the faster, harder parts, and the middle section.
    It's just.. great. As far as I'm concerned, this song is one of Michael's finest achievements.

    General CommentThis song is now horroble ironic.

    "Demerol, Demerol
    Oh god he's taking Demerol
    Demerol, Demerol
    Oh god he's taking Demerol"

    Michael Jackson died way to young and I can't even understand that he's gone.

    General CommentThis is a metaphor for a destructive relationship...There are actually more lyrics that were cut from the song that were auctioned off....He's pissed at the woman/media and lashing out saying the relationship is like Morphine (mind numbing) At this time MJ was going through a lot of shit and it comes out in his songs.

    When the piano kicks in you can hear his mockery at the media over reacting to everything he does and turning it to something it's not(lies) but you can also hear his hidden pain and it never fails to make me cry for the utter tragedy of his death.

    He's tried hard to convince her
    Till there's no more of what he had
    Today he wants it twice as bad
    Don't cry I won't resent you
    Yesterday you had his trust
    Today he's taking twice as much


    Demerol, Demerol
    Oh god he's taking Demerol, hee
    Demerol, Demerol
    Oh my he's got his Demerol
    hee... hoo...
    Oogh!

    This part of the song is some of the best music Michael have ever written. The whole song should have been like this.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the musical genius that Michael Jackson really is. I don't think that many people appreciate that. I really hope we will be able to hear more from him soon. I think he's aching to sing about all the stuff that's happened to him.
