The Lyrics

Since the 1980s "War on Drugs" is a joke and the US is in downfall, the use of both prescription and illegal drugs has skyrocketed. There will never be a victory against drugs not due to foreign production but US high consumption fed by demand. Almost everyone is smoking pot and abusing prescription drugs, so what the hell. Under Obama we have lost almost everything and a second term for that idiot will see the US fall. So why not drug-up???
What the US needs now is drugs, street drugs
It's the only thing that there's just a surplus of
What the US needs now is drugs, street drugs,
No not just for scum, but for every citizen

Lord, we don't need another US war,
There are wars and hot spots and associated war crimes
There are depressions and recessions- enough financial loss,
‘Til the US reaches the end of the line (could come anytime)

What the US needs now is drugs, street drugs
It's the only thing that there's just a surplus of
What the US needs now is drugs, street drugs,
No not just for scum, but for every citizen

Lord, we don't need another Dimowit President
There are criminals and imbeciles that already run the show
There are liberals and idiots on the Hill enough to remind
Oh listen, Lord, Obama’s gotta go- HE’S GOTTA GO!!!

What the US needs now is drugs, street drugs
It's the only thing that there's just a surplus of
What the US needs now is drugs, street drugs,
No not just for scum, but for every citizen
No, not just for scum, oh, but just for every citizen

It’s the only way to cope with this downfall nation…

I know what you mean, I am on an amphetamine Adderall, and you have to practically sell your soul to get it. Great parody Rob! 5's! :-)

Why should Congress keep all the good stuff for itself. They have to be stoned on something.
