"High Times" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
You don't need your name in bright lights
You're a rock star
And some tin foil with a glass pipe
Is your guitar now yes it is
Little Angela
Suffers delusions
From these high times
She's been cleaning up, since she was fourteen
On the main line
And her hunky funky junky, of a boyfriend
Got her on late nights, with her skirt tight
Whoa, she's a wild thing
Letting it all swing
God bless our high times

Don't you know that last night
Turned to daylight
And a minute, became a day
Last night (last night)
All my troubles
Well they seemed so, so far away
Searching my reflection
For a glimpse of, another me
I've got to get away from all these high high times
'Cause these high times are killing me

Now high times go on and on and on
High times rock your mind yeah

This twisted crystal Kingdom
Where you live your nine lives
And your head spins
With purple cyclones
Made of dexadrine
And when the phone rings
You think bad things
Well these are high high high high times yeah
In any back street
When you take a hot seat
Make sure check your flight times
Oh now mama

Don't you know that last night
Turned to daylight
And a minute, became a day
Last night (last night)
All my troubles
Well they seemed so, so far away
Searching my reflecting
For a glimpse of, another me
I've got to get away from all these high high times
'Cause these high times are killing me

Now drop this time
Paranoia will destroy ya
Paranoia will destroy ya
Paranoia will destroy ya
Paranoia
Paranoia

Don't you know that last night
Turned to daylight
And a minute, became a day
Last night (last night)
All my troubles
Well they seemed so, so far away
Searching my reflection
For a glimpse of, another one
I've got to get away from all these high high times
'Cause these high times are killing me

La la la la
High times (oh yeah)
We're living in high high times yeah

Last night (last night)
Turned to daylight
And a moment
Half a world away
Time can be so precious
When you throw your life away
I can't help living it up
Letting it all go wrong
I can't keep living this way
Knowing my life has gone

Kids wanna give it up
Kids wanna give it up
Time to let your mind be free
Searching for eternity

Kids wanna give it up
Kids wanna give it up
Time to let your mind be free
Searching for eternity

Kids wanna give it up
Kids wanna give it up
Time to let your mind be free
Searching for eternity

Kids wanna give it up
Kids wanna give it up, yeah, alright

    General CommentIt's about slowly becoming famous in the music industry. And once you really get to the top, it will start to weaken you. Everything in your life becomes busy; the interviews, the gigs, contracts to sign, contribute to advertisements, promote your work and so on. You rarely get time to just sit back & relax. And when you start to stress about these things..drugs & alcohol may come in.

    Just what happened to Amy Winehouse. She got money & fame, and she used 'em the wrong way UNDER too much pressure. Nobody took care of her.

    The major record labels are sick, they're only after money. They treat the musicians like shit.

    Jay Kay knows this and wrote this song, it's his personal experience, although the song may not be autobiographical
