"New Drug" as written by and Markus/urban Poetry Ganssert....
I lost my sight when I got stun
I never bleeded so
Do I slide into vice
Till I'm gone?

You're like a dive into the wild
Like poems
Holding me as gentle
As a new born child at night

Then sorrow breaks
The silent spell
My mind is clearing up
And takes me back
Into my shell
Back to hell

I hope you
Won't see me through
Like I do
I can't get
You out of my mind
I see still I'm blind
I hope you
Won't see me through
Like I do
I can't get
Me out of this hug
Just be my new drug

    General CommentThis song is about heroin.

    "I lost my sight when I got stung" means that he lost sight of himself, his ideals, and his aspirations when he injected heroin, or was "stung" by a syringe as he puts it.

    Also, during "Do I slide into vice // Till I'm gone?" you can hear a voice in the background. The voice repeats this line three times, "It's heroin. It's heroin. It's heroin." The last instance of the repetition is the easiest to hear.

    The next verse explains the feeling of heroin.

    The third verse explains coming down off of heroin, going into withdrawals, and 'being in hell'.

    "I can't get you out of my mind, I see still I'm blind." He's saying that now that's he's done heroin he can't stop thinking about it now. His aspirations and ideals are still being compromised, and he's 'blind' because of heroin.

    "I can't get me out of this hug." I believe this is a reference to addiction to heroin, which is usually called having a 'gorilla on your back' (a play on monkey on your back since this addiction is so overwhelming.)

    General CommentI screwed up on part of that last submission. The voice in the background is a countdown. I was just hearing things.

    Nonetheless my opinion on the song stands. It sounds almost like the song is about a woman, but if you read closely it's definitely heroin. Never heard a more poetic and graceful song about heroin.
