"40 Oz. To Freedom" as written by Bradley James Nowell and Marshall Raymond Goodman....
You've got your hair permed
You've got your red dress on
Screamin' that second gear was such a turn on
And the fog forming on my window tells me that the morning's here
And you'll be gone before too long

Who taught you those new tricks?
Damn I shouldn't start that talk,
But life is one big question when your starin' at the clock
And the answers always waiting at the liquor store, forty ounce to freedom
So I take that walk

And I know that oh, I'm not comin' back
Oh not going back
Oh God knows not going back
Oh not goin'

And you look so fine, when you lie, it just don't show,
But I know which way the wind blows
A forty ounce to freedom is the only chance I have to feel good
Even though I feel bad

And I know that, oh, I'm not goin' back
Oh not going back
Oh God knows I'm not going back

Oh, I'm not goin' back
Oh not going back
Oh God knows I'm not going back

    General CommentIf we'll all notice for just a moment that brad wasn't necessarily an alcoholic or a pothead or anything (substance wise) but a junkie, and junkies always feel better with some sort of alien (or chemical) substance coursing through their veins, so they'll do any drug pretty much. Scary, huh? Also, when you think about it, so many amazing artists (namely musicians in the past 30 years) have addictive personalities, and tendancies to abuse drugs. Coincidence? I dunno, but I do know that Brad Nowell was an amazing guy with an amazing voice and an old soul. Peace!
