On The House

Updated: Sep 26, 2021

The first shot is always free

When you’re hooked they add the fee

God damn the pusher man

His job’s to get us hooked

Don’t give a good God damn

How often it is brooked

Here to advance his brand

On all those who partook

While supplying the demand

Our modified outlook

The first shot is always free

When you’re hooked they add the fee

Adapt us young the plan

Childhood vaccination

Accept drugs systems stan

Addict acclimation

Introduce contraband

Make it fascinating

Imprisoned in Candyland

Systemic suffocating

The first shot is always free

When you’re hooked they add the fee

Open up and let them in

No reason to sit and grouse

Hear the voice above the din

“The first one is on the house!”

The first shot is always free

When you’re hooked they add the fee

Come on all you folk

Time to take the poke

Asleep or a woke

Injection’s lucky stroke

The public health invoke

The patriot provoke

The system isn’t broke

It’s just the killing joke

The first shot is always free

When you’re hooked they add the fee

In your mind and in your veins

Addict ethos they espouse

Drugs in all of their campaigns

And the Agency warehouse

Faced with more evolving strains

Gasoline won’t fires douse

Often losses outweigh gains

When we’re playing cat and mouse

Poison the system ordains

Enjoy libations as a souse

Where dependence entertains

“The first one is on the house!”
