Dope Ain't Dope

We got a problem
Problems pain
Coast to coast now
Addiction reigns

Call the doctor
Yo doc, I need some pills
Fore you know it,
Lord they can break your will

A devils spider spins this web
Innocent lives join the book of the dead
No amount of money
Can buy out this deep pain

The walking wounded
Slide on down the drain

Dope ain’t dope
That’s just a phrase
Dope ain’t dope No way
Dope ain’t dope
It’s a crying shame
Dope ain’t dope
It’s a ball and chain

Could be your brother, might be your son
Could be your father, might be your mom
Could be your cousin or it
Might be your best friend

Those little pain pills
They don’t give a damn

I tell ya, dope ain’t dope
Everybody knows
Dope ain’t dope
Its dyin’ slow
Dope ain’t dope
It’s a ball and chain
Dope just ain’t dope no way

I’ve seen the pictures
Make ya weep
Asleep at the wheel
On a crowded street

Only victims
Nobody’s keeping score
To date
But, locked up in the backseat
This victim is a babe
Oh no, no, no

Dope ain’t dope… That’s just a phrase
Dope ain’t dope… It’s a crying shame
Dope ain’t dope… Everybody knows
Dope ain’t dope… It’s dying slow
Dope ain’t dope… It’s a ball and chain
Dope just ain’t dope
