The Lyrics

this song is named after the narcotic I'm on right now.. a kick in the ass off heroin pain killer on the market, for my money, but the trip it sends you on if you double up the dose is (talwin = pentazocine...pronounced "Tall win")
I used to fake it a lot, so I could take it a lot,
used to pop one at the break of day
when I didn't get it, the wall, yeah I would just hit it,
I just couldn't carry on that way
oh, this is addictive I know it's true
didn't know to write some lyrics, but I'm tryin to

I have no resistance, I'm whacked out
on my talwin
it's a medical assistant, when I'm out
on the talwin..

I'll be talkin about it, I got nothin else to do
when my dose comes down, I know just what to do
take a talwin

you know I don't understand, why I don't quickly get better?
do the crazy things that I do
all the analgesics in my drawer,
couldn't hold a candle to you
will it make me go bad, will it make me psychotic?
will I miss my sweet Royce when I'm taking narcotics?

ask me why I take it?
I'm freaked out, on my talwin
doctor says to take it, just lie down,
you're on talwin

withdrawal, it starts me shakin,
when again should I be takin
one more talwin
ooh I want to thank you, baby talwin

I wish you well, Lord HiGUNs. So many in my family are gone now; I try to see them in the safe/happy place, state of heaven where they be. I known that some day I'll join them all, and it will be like it was, listening to La Musica fuerte, eating good food, along with the Great Lakers' laughter. Sleep well, Sir.
