He was my best friend, I tried to help him
But he traded everything, for suffering 
And found himself alone 
I watched the lying, turn into hiding 
With scars on both his lips, his fingertips 
Were melted to the bone

But I can still remember what his face looked like
When I found him in an alley in the middle of the night 
Tell me what you know! Tell me what you gone and done now!
Tell me what you know! Tell me what you gone and done now!
Gun would do the trick, get it over with
You're better off
To take all you've got and burn it on the spot
Just to get high, (high)

 Three days no sleeping, he gave up eating 
He sold his mother's rings, she said nothing 
And pretended not to know
He started stealing, to supply the feeling  Found out he pulled a knife, on someone's wife
And held it to her throat 

But I can still remember what his face looked like
When I found him in an alley in the middle of the night 
Tell me what you know! Tell me what you gone and done now!
Tell me what you know! Tell me what you gone and done now!
Gun would do the trick, get it over with
You're better off
To take all you've got and burn it on the spot
Just to get high (high)

Tell me what did, where you gone and hid?
Show me!
What you really want, was it what you got?
Slowly!
 Circling the drain, throw it all away
Just to get high, (high)
High, oh!

(High, high)
High
(High, high)
High

Tell me what you know! Tell me what you gone and done now!
Tell me what you know! Tell me what you gone and done now!
Gun would do the trick, get it over with
You're better off
To take all that you've got and burn it on the spot
Just to get high, (high)
Tell me what did, where you gone and hid?
Show me!
What you really want, was it what you got?
Slowly!
 Circling the drain, throw it all away
Just to get high
Just to get high
 Circling the drain, throw it all away
Just to get high
