    I was listening to one of my old CDs of presidents of the USA and came across this song. Anyone have other songs they think are about amphetamines?.

    CANDY

    The sugar’s only sweetness,
    Salt is ocean tears
    And you were my only weakness
    For years and years and years
    You little (yo) sweetie
    You were hiding in a jar
    Now my mind is gone completely
    Take off the lid and there you are

    You’re my can-dy
    Can-dy

    Well the devil, she made sweet candy,
    Took six days and nights to dream
    On the seventh day she rested,
    Woke up early and made ice cream
    Now the devil, she must be a dentist
    With deep jawbreaker eyes
    Red rope hair, gumdrop lips,
    Cotton candy thighs

    (chaga lava) stole my body
    And aftertaste stole my mind
    Left me dangling down defenseless
    Then sweet candy she said goodbye
    Now my teeth are worn and useless
    My eyes too sunk to see
    My tongue swelled up to twice it’s size
    And all I want to do is eat

    Haha I listen to that song all the time and never even realized.

    Geek Stink Breath by Green Day:

    I'm on a mission
    I made my decision
    To lead a path of self destruction
    A slow progression
    Killing my complexion
    And it's rotting out my teeth

    I'm on a roll
    No self comtrol
    I'm blowing off steam with methamphetamine
    Don't know what I want
    That's all that I've got
    And I'm picking scabs off my face

    Every hour my blood is turning sour
    And my pulse is beating out of time
    I found a treasure
    filled with sick pleasure
    And it sits on a thin white line

    I'm on a roll
    No self comtrol
    I'm blowing off steam with methamphetamine
    Don't know what I want
    That's all that I've got
    And I'm picking scabs off my face

    I'm on a mission
    I got no decision
    Like a cripple running the rat race
    Wish in one hand shoot in the other
    And see which one gets filled first

    I'm on a roll
    No self comtrol
    I'm blowing off steam with methamphetamine
    Don't know what I want
    That's all that I've got
    And I'm picking scabs off my face

    </pre>

    Yeah Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day was a bit of a tweaker in his
    earlier days, Geek Stink Breath, Brain Stew, and Tight Wad Hill are all
    about meth...



    Billy Corgan (smashing pumpkins leader) was supposedly into meth during
    97, 98 while they were touring and recording their album Adore...a few
    songs from that time are about speed, Annie Dog, Speed Kills to name a
    few...he also did the music for the movie Spun.

    the mandatory Third Eye Blind - "Semi-Charmed Life"


    Always loved that song anyway, notto mention when I figured out it was about meth.

    DAYCARE SWINDLERS LYRICS
    "Crystal Meth"

    Got plenty of friends i'd like you to meet
    in my life and my world and its all at my feet
    got a box of good records from the back of the rack
    im driving 90 miles an hour in a fucking speed trap
    got a grin on my face and i know when to react
    got a bag in my hand and the world at my back
    try to feed the disease its not as easy as it seems
    been awake for 3 days coming apart at the seams

    [Chorus:]
    ohh im a zombie
    been awake for 3 days
    ill sleep enough when im dead
    in the meantime im stayin awake

    wanna scream wanna play with my girlfriend all day
    make a mess get undressed and FUCK it all away
    fried hair fried brain bitch and complain
    im driving 90 miles an hour in the passing lane
    im on bottom on top im inside and im bent
    changing faces in the phone booth
    like i was clark kent
    its alright its ok ive been awake for 3 days
    doing fine but my mind is slipping away

    ::Chorus::LyricsCafe.com::

    everything falls apart read the signs on the wall
    peice of mind will decay
    deconstruction all be dead feel no pain
    intoxicate numb the mind inebriate
    pull the plug! [2x]

    my eyes wide open wanna pull the plug [4x]

    Feel no spirit
    should i forfeit
    peices dont quite fit

    (Hit it)
    Wake up
    Wake up
    Children don't ya hear me comin'
    Get up
    Get up
    Because I got to have the honey
    And I don't want to leave this heaven so soon
    Rollin' children keep on rollin'
    Rollin' children keep on rollin'
    Keep the light turned low and the back door open
    My love rain down like sugar so sweet
    (got what you want, so come and get it)
    Yes children I will
    Tall lawman rides
    With his uniform clean, shine on his shoes
    My radio plays
    Methamphetamine blues
    and tell all the news
    I'm rollin' just to keep on rollin'
    Wake up
    Children
    Get right soul church, keep a lock on the kitchen
    Do risks for your daddy
    (I'll do it daddy)
    Keep your eyes wide open and my shotgun loaded
    Cause I don't want to leave this heaven so soon
    Rollin' just to keep on rollin'
    Rollin' just to keep on rollin'
    Rollin' just to keep on rollin'
    My love rain down like sugar so sweet
    (got what you want, so come and get it)
    Yes baby
    Tall lawmen rides
    With his uniform clean, shine on his shoes
    My radio plays
    Methamphetamine blues
    and tell all the news
    I'm rollin just to keep on rollin'
    Rollin just to keep on rollin'
    Rollin just to keep on rollin'
    I don't want to leave this heaven so soon
    Rollin just to keep on rollin'
    Rollin just to keep on rollin'
    Rollin just to keep on rollin'
    Rollin just to keep on rollin'
    I don't want to leave this heaven so soon

    Swim is pretty sure swim didn't see a thread on this subject...

    Swim never noticed there were any songs written about meth until swim started using. These are all the songs swim can think of that swim's pretty sure are about meth and some that are maybes. Any and all opinions welcome ^_^ all swiy feel free to dispute or question as this is mostly opinions and not factual.

    1. Chemical Infatuation- Like A Storm (just to obvious)
    2. Blind - Korn (technically about addiction but swim think those songs count as well)
    3. Let You Down -Three Days Grace
    4. I Hate Everything - Three Days Grace
    5. Break - Three Days Grace (this song they just got lazy with metaphors and went to obvious)
    6. Helmut in a Bush- Korn
    7. Here It Comes Again - Korn
    8. Inhale - Stone Sour
    9. Sober - Pink
    10. Wait and Bleed - Slipknot (this one swim not sure at all just like to jam this when lit)

    That's all swim can think on the tip of swim's brain... swim remembers snoop dog saying "twis that bubble like a chemist) but don't remember the song. Swim mostly listens to korn and rock. So cross genre songs would be interesting.

    "Semi-charmed kinda life", by 3rd Eye Blind is definitely about meth, with blatant references getting bleeped on terrestrial radio stations. I'm not real interested in meth though so I've probably missed noticing a lot through the years.

    Duality by Slipknot. I don't know, any song you can make about drug addiction. There's a lot of songs out there that anyone could make out to be their DOC's.

    NIN- Perfect drug (although as Reef88 said, someone can make any song about their DOC)
    Eagles- Hotel California (although this song is said to be about H, I can for sure see how it could be about shooting meth)


    That's all I can think of for now.

    Actually, NIN's Perfect Drug is dedicated to my wife.

    If this is being broadened to include songs about any drug, I could pretty much go on forever.
    Here's a few:

    Drug Free America -- NOFX
    Drugs Are Good -- NOFX
    Heroin -- Velvet Underground
    Waiting For The Man -- VU again
    LOTS of Pink Floyd
    Free Cocaine -- The Dwarves
    Cocaine -- Eric Clapton
    Needle & The Spoon -- Skynyrd
    Rocket Man -- Elton John
    Ridin' That Train -- Grateful Dead
    Mr. Brownstown -- Guns N Roses
    Givin' Up -- The Darkness

    ...

    Swim rather keep it more meth oriented since it is in the meth section.
    -seether- fine again
    -korn-embrace

    A really great song is

    Not a Addict - K's Choice

    Think it's actually about heroin but it very much applies to meth. SWIM loved it even before SWIN became an IV user.

    Yes it is one of SWIMs favorite drug songs. She has lots of other ones but not that can be posted here because of not really having anything to do with Meth.
