"OD'd On Life Itself" as written by Samuel Pearlman, Donald Roeser, Albert Bouchard and E Bloom....
How could I fool you, I rest and assure you
Take it off from here and put you on the line, yeah
Your back to the pistol and iron bullets whistle
The landscape's open and the world is mine, it's still mine.

O-D'd on life, life itself
(O-D'd on life itself, O-D'd on life itself, the power of powers
And once luminous spell)
O-D'd on life, life itself
(O-D'd on life itself, O-D'd on life itself, crumpled like grave cloths and
Hipped to the help and you've)
O-D'd on life itself

Writings appear on the wall
The curtains part and landscape fall
There, the writing's done, in blood
Like a mummy's inscription and a bat-wing tongue

Well then the mouth of the cave will open up wide
Wide as the world that's mine, it's mine, it's still mine

So don't you fear the trade in life
Life loves force but force loves life, yeah
This wedding by heaven was made up in hell
With the victim as bride and life, life itself

O-D'd on life, life itself
(O-D'd on life itself, O-D'd on life itself, the power of powers
And once luminous spell)
O-D'd on life, life itself
(O-D'd on life itself, O-D'd on life itself, crumpled like grave cloths and
Hipped to the help and you've)
O-D'd on life itself

O-D'd on life, you O-D'd on life itself
O-D'd on life, you O-D'd on life itself
O-D'd on life, life itself.

    General CommentIn an old interview with *Creem* magazine, Eric Bloom says that "O.D.'d On Life Itself" is basically a song inspired when Sandy saw some girl who was "totally out of it, a real asshole; she'd O.D.'d on life".
