The Lyrics

too many drunks die of cirrhosis of the liver
too many broken minds from takin' ecstasy
smoke cigarettes, and you will pay the price
the things we do for drugs...the things we do for drugs

intoxication is no answer to your problems
you smoke a number and you're in the twilight zone
the crack pipe burns, and then your heart shuts down
the things we do for drugs...the things we do for drugs

like wrackin' up your brain, doncha know
when your teeth start to go
or you're feelin' like some part of you is dyin'
as you're cookin' up some heroin, tonight
your mind is gonna break up
and there ain't no way to make up

ooh...some people love 'em
ooh....the price they pay
ooh...soon they are crawlin' up the wall

if folks were wise, they'd surely stop this situation
agree to let them be...to never more take part
but some will fall, but that's no big surprise
the things we do for drugs
the things we do for drugs
the things we do for drugs
the things we do for drugs

Johnny: Amiright Parodoxide! Is that what you have in your CPAP unit instead of oxygen? :-)
