metaphor: rock and roll (cocaine and heroin)

e: ... your music is less innocent than you realize ... and you don't have to play it backwards to hear it ... how did this ever go unmentioned? ... the truth is the opposite of everything they tell you ... don't play the music backwards ... just use the glossary below ...

... the addict does cocaine at night ... comes down in the morning, gets the blues ... then does blue (heroin) to sleep and dream during the day ... and they move from one side to the other ... from high to low ... and the songs are about shooting up ...

... never get addicted to something you cannot afford ... i met a heroin addict last year ... he said he was clean now ... said he and his girl friend used to spend $2000 per week on heroin and meth ... how can anybody afford that? ... you are either rich, a thief, or a dealer ... he OD'd and DIED the first time he relapsed ...

... good reason to never try ... it'll take everything from you ... your life too.
