The Lyrics

I didn't make it cold turkey,
I couldn't cut it in a twelve step program
tired of living like a junkie
I'm sick of buying and I'm sick of selling and
this is how you remind me

this is how you remind me
how much I need a gram
this is how you remind me
how much I need a gram

It's not like I'm addicted
well, maybe I am afflicted
denial, prevents me,
from saying that I'm a junkie
I've been high,
I've been low,
I've shot up with many needles
all my friends come around
and brag of ways to get high

get high, get high, get high,
no more
get low, get low, get low,
no more

It's not like I'm not trying
I said I'm quitting ever since I got caught
and you said that you'd quit too
but your breath's still smelling of pot and

this is how you remind me
how much I need a gram
this is how you remind me
how much I need a gram

It's not like I'm addicted
well, maybe I am afflicted
denial, prevents me,
from saying that I'm a junkie
I've been high,
I've been low,
I've shot up with many needles
all my friends come around
and brag of ways to get high

get high, get high, get high,
no more
get low, get low, get low,
no more
get high, get high, get high,
no more
get low, get low, get low,
no more

I didn't make it cold turkey,
I couldn't cut it in a twelve step program
and this is how you remind me
this is how you remind me

this is how you remind me
how much I need a gram
this is how you remind me
how much I need a gram

It's not like I'm addicted
well, maybe I am afflicted
denial, prevents me,
from saying that I'm a junkie
I've been high,
I've been low,
I've shot up with many needles
all my friends come around
and brag of ways to get high

get high, get high,
brag of ways to get high
get low, get low,
so many ways to get low
I'm trying to quit
but they just keep getting high
I'm trying to quit
