Methadone 02:04
............. LYRICS: I’d rather be alone Than take you to your methadone Cherry syrup keeps you from feeling sick Then you go and chill with your sugar daddy dick I’ve known you for years and you’ve changed a lot Your drug of choice is heroin and mine is not Give me back my tripod when I come to drop your stuff off Walking our dogs hand in hand The public park suddenly turned into candyland We lay on the grass, I watched you smoke Nugget sniffed Sasha’s ass and I made a joke Now I’m at home with my guitar And I don’t give a fuck where you are Give me back my tripod when I come to drop your stuff off You can go down to the mission and score a balloon Bring the happiness home and cook it in your spoon Before you nod off be sure not to call me I’d rather be alone Than take you to your methadone Cherry syrup keeps you from feeling sick Then you go and chill with your sugar daddy dick I’ve known you for years and you’ve changed a lot Your drug of choice is heroin and mine is not Give me back my tripod when I come to drop your stuff off

ABOUT:

My girlfriend, at the time, was hanging out with another dude just a few days after he slashed my tire. I wrote this song in a fit of rage in about half an hour. I knew this girl since grade school and had unrealistic expectations of being in a relationship with someone struggling with addiction. She is mad that this song exists and I don’t blame her.

~ Ben

LYRICS:

I’d rather be alone
Than take you to your methadone
Cherry syrup keeps you from feeling sick
Then you go and chill with your sugar daddy dick

I’ve known you for years and you’ve changed a lot
Your drug of choice is heroin and mine is not
Give me back my tripod when I come to drop your stuff off

Walking our dogs hand in hand
The public park suddenly turned into candyland
We lay on the grass, I watched you smoke
Nugget sniffed Sasha’s ass and I made a joke

Now I’m at home with my guitar
And I don’t give a fuck where you are
Give me back my tripod when I come to drop your stuff off

You can go down to the mission and score a balloon
Bring the happiness home and cook it in your spoon
Before you nod off be sure not to call me

I’d rather be alone
Than take you to your methadone
Cherry syrup keeps you from feeling sick
Then you go and chill with your sugar daddy dick

I’ve known you for years and you’ve changed a lot
Your drug of choice is heroin and mine is not
Give me back my tripod when I come to drop your stuff off
