I was born drunk and high
Either that or I've grown accustomed To that state of mind 
I don't understand why with all the knowledge on health affects 
Still I can't wait to take another shot and light that cigarette 
Living with regret why? Every one of my grandparents died because of the need to get high
Whether it's the long term use of
Or even a heroin overdose
Both sides I Still I tried it 
Hexed the first time meth touch my breath 
Speed yes please cuz sleep's the cousin of death 
With weed I am obsessed
Doing any activity with Mary Jane upon my breath
Mixing tobacco or coke with my pot why not 
Cuz life only gave us this one shot yo
Kids yelling Yolo
I'm stick this tooter in your nose
And rail a line of blow 
how low does the rabbit hole goes
why I don't have it 
sky high I was born to be an addict 
Amy wine house Chris Farley Jimi Hendrix 
All great with coke on a plate so let me try it 
tonight I wanna have a ball
Adderol alcohol downing beers with no fear  
my liver goes for light years no stall
Even though I'm quick to give Molly and LSD a couple hits 
My Inhibition wants to riot
impulse on auto pilot
Why just let adrenalin get you excited

How cliche take family member away and I'm ready to play 
The game who can maintain after a cocktail of narcotics to 
Your mutha fuckin brain 
Slammed into my veins
How is it possible to live your whole life in a sober state?
When there's so many drugs to take 
I can't wait give it to me I can't wait
Pretty good at consuming better try moving weight
Let it escalate drug trade since the day of slave trade
Every pill I swallow a hand grenade
Every binge I go on a brain cell
Air raid 
But it wasn't always this way

Easily lost in the groove 
I feel like we have nothing
To lose 
figures of religion 
people in high
Positions chose to expand the third eye vision
But why do we get high
Still doin pills an expensive thrill
Picking off my brain cells 
Like they're fun to kill
Why do I get high
Will dilated eyes
Sprawled out be the look
Of me demise
Getting by till suicide
 Why do I get high
