The Lyrics

goodbye normal genes
though i never..used you, at all
i'd have a taste and drug myself
around the room, i'd crawl
things crawled out of the woodwork
and they whispered as they came
i'd veg out on some pain pills
and i would not know my name

and it seems to me
i led my life...high on ganja, pills and gin
always needing drugs to get through
when the roof caved in
and i would have liked to known you
but now i've hit the skids
my mind was burned out long before
i finally flipped my lid

withdrawal can be tough
the toughest men will howl and bray
smack created a psyche, scarred
and pain is the price you pay
many folks have died
and their ghosts have haunted you
i was busted yesterday
and some heroin...was found...on this dude

and it seems to me
i led my life...high on ganja, pills and gin
always needing drugs to get through
when the roof caved in
and i would have liked to known you
but now i've hit the skids
my mind was burned out long before
i finally flipped my lid

goodbye normal genes
from this young man in his...personal death row
who's strung out on something...pharmaceutical
more messed up, now...merrily, i go

and it seems to me
i led my life...high on ganja, pills and gin
always needing drugs to get through
when the roof caved in
and i would have liked to known you
but now i've hit the skids
my mind was burned out long before
i finally flipped my lid

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit smoking. And drinking. And amphetamines. And sniffing glue.

Excellent work! The chorus scans really well ... may well be performed in Trondheim Norway next week! :-)
