Start to finish


My name is cannabis it starts with me
I’ll get you stoned just wait and see
I’m an upper or downer that's up to you
Its where you are and what you do.
Now off you go and meet my friends
What you do now, well that depends

Hi, I’m Ecstasy I’m loads of fun
I can take your life just popping one
If you live on I’ll lead you astray
Your life for me you may have to pay

My name is Mephedrone meow meow
M-cat Is the in drug now
Bubbles, bounce, charge and drone
On the streets is how I’m known
For 60 minutes you’ll feel great
Mental dependence I can create
So think before you start to shop
You’ll find I’m very hard to stop

Hi, my name is Mexxy
I'm known as a legal high
I'll detach you from the world around
I'm a really nasty guy
I can take up to 90 minutes
To take effect it's true                        
So you could take too much of me
The last thing you may do

Hi I’m ketamine I’ll freak you out
My hallucination power is what I’m about
Damage your body and you’ll feel no pain
Do the job right you’ll never take me again

I'm Cocaine I’ll be your friend
I’ll stay with you until the end
Your heart will race but you’ll carry on
snorting lines until it’s gone,
Now Lie, cheat and steal to keep yourself high
kiss your loved ones and say goodbye

Crack’s the name, give me a try
Use me once you’ll chase the high
I’ll give you a buzz and you’ll feel alive
You’ll come down fast, you might survive

At last we meet I'm crystal meth
I think you'll find That I'm the best
Stay with me and I'll mess with your brain
Then your libido will gain and gain
You may indulge in unsafe sex, 
Which is not a good addiction
STD's lay in wait for you 
caused by your inhibition.

I'm Heroin and I'll drive you insane 
Your life with me will be filled with pain
Never again will you have a good time
I own you now
