them tiny, tiny pills.
I’m a cutting off the film.
Leave you wide awake, dead asleep,
keep you in stitches every night of the week.
…said come on in my friend.
We’re gonna take our daily flight.
kick it back with chilly Bud Light.
Roll around in a Pick-Up Truck.
Stand by the lake and get fucked up.
…a Midwestern Boy’s best friend
Starin’ at the TV,
picking at an itch.
She runnin’ at the mouth, say she hungry,
screamin’ all kinda’ shit.
Staggered down to the Food 4 Less,
took a Rib Eye Steak, stuck it in my vest.
When I’m stealing I’m at my best
…on Hillbilly Heroin
Woke up this morning,
strangest thing I ever seen.
Some fool took about 40 Mil.,
went out, chopped down a tree.
Well now I got fresh kindling,
but I don’t remember a goddamn thing.
Aint it great what the new day brings,
on Hillbilly Heroin.
Hillbilly Heroin and a ‘Scrip of Laricet.
Between them two and a new tattoo,
Baby, I just blew the rent.
But don’t you worry, don’t you cry,
We’ll put another Mortgage
on the Double Wide.
Deal with it all on another time
…can I chop you out a line?
Chop it up (Carl Verheyen Solo)
better known as Oxycontin.
City folks call it an epidemic,
but we just call it fun.
Were either on the hunt,
or waiting on our next Welfare Check.
is the Bible Belt’s best friend.
