  • My congressman says I cant give my brother a clean syringe
    If he should get aids and die, that's just too bad
    My senator says I can't give my sister a clean syringe
    If she should get hepititis and die, that's just too bad
    My president says I cant give my brother a clean syringe
    If he should get hepititis and die, that's just too bad
    The policeman says I cant give my sister a clean syringe
    If she should get aids and die, that's just too bad
    My county superviser likes to think he's so much wiser
    Than all the doctors put together
    Who say we should give away clean syringes
    My city councilman says it's not a problem
    We're only gonna spend millions on treatment won't work
    For people who will die
    My community likes to claim immunity on the basis of homophobia
    And a lack of medical fact
    Hey america there's needle users sleeping with your children
    With your daughters, with your sons and with your husbands.
    We got a law, says you can't own a needle.
    Without a presciption
    Do you think that ever kept anyone from shooting up?
    All the politicians say, we cant legalize exchange
    Because that would be sending the wrong message
    But did you ever notice,
    On every billboard, in every magazine, in every corner store, on every tv screen.
    The message is "buy cigarettes and alcohol"
    Don't you know drugs are everywhere , you can't stop it
    Criminalize it, make it profitable, ensure its longevity
    Don't you know drugs are everywhere, you can't stop it
    It's not a law enforcement issue,
    Addiction's a disease
    If you find your self in the position of having to share a needle with another person,
    Take the steps to ensure that you don't get infected.
    Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    That's step one
    Suck bleach up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    Suck bleach up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    Suck bleach up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    That's step two
    Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out.
    That's step three, you're done
    We got a law, says you can't own a needle.
    Without a presciption
    Do you think that ever kept anyone from shooting up?
    All the politicians say, we cant legalize exchange
    Because that would be sending the wrong message
    But did you ever notice,
    On every billboard, in every magazine, in every corner store, on every tv screen.
    The message is "buy cigarettes and alcohol"
    Don't you know drugs are everywhere, you can't stop it

    Don't you know drugs are everywhere , you can't stop it

    Addiction's a disease
