It started off one big happy family
Two brothers and then me
A great big house, big front yard with an oak tree
But of course what happens when you start to worry about money?
Dad loses his job the kids grow up
experiment with alcohol and weed
one goes on a stealing spree
ends up with charges in multiple counties
Lets take it back to why this all started
no juvie, just probation for a while
can't smoke weed so he turns to the hard stuff
heroine straight to the arm, skid marks
stole his sisters iPod
the other one continues to sip from the bottle
car accident full throttle
brain damage, prescribed that vile
Xanax, Percocet’s, Vicodin
pretty soon snorting heroin
little sister bailing him out of jail
$130 here, $220 there
parents struggle to put her through school
all the while balancing two troubled sons with no cares
but what if the world was changed?
instead of prohibition, its execution
no drugs on the streets
we end this toxic pollution that is thrust into the veins of our children
this is real life!
people have these problems and they're too doped up to solve them
so lets eliminate the variable because we're independent
and we can control the actions
an earth without drugs
an earth without manmade venom
parents won't sit up at night worrying is my child gonna make it?
little sisters won't grow up thinking is that really my brother?
If we can just exterminate these drugs we won't have addicts
the world wouldn't be fixed but it would damn sure be better
no matter where you come from drugs are a problem
it could be Malibu or parts or Harlem
So you’re asking me if I could change one thing what would it be?
Weed and cocaine and heroin and codeine and crack and Xanax and Percocet’s and Vicodin and oxytocin and amphetamines and meth and MDMA and PCP and LSD and all that Ecstasy
Well I’d get rid of these
drugs might get you high but that’s just temporary
because when you come down there's no landing safely
you have to deal with your life
there's no copilot to help you land gracefully
