Whiskey bottles, and brand new cars
Oak tree you're in my way
There's too much coke and too much smoke Look what's going on inside you
 Ooooh that smell Can't you smell that smell Ooooh that smell The smell of death surrounds you
 Angel of darkness is upon you Stuck a needle in your arm
So take another toke, have a blow for your nose
And one more drink fool, will drown you
 Ooooh that smell Can't you smell that smell Ooooh that smell The smell of death surrounds you

Now they call you Prince Charming
Can't speak a word when you're full of 'ludes
Say you'll be all right come tomorrow But tomorrow might not be here for you
 Ooooh that smell Can't you smell that smell Ooooh that smell The smell of death surrounds you

Hey, you're a fool, you (2:30)
Go on stick them needles in your arm (2:34)

I know I been there before (2:50)

One little problem that confronts you (3:28)
Got a monkey on your back
Just one more fix, Lord might do the trick One hell of a price for you to get your kicks  Ooooh that smell Can't you smell that smell Ooooh that smell The smell of death surrounds you Ooooh that smell Can't you smell that smell Ooooh that smell The smell of death surrounds you

Hey, you're a fool, you
Go on stick those needles in your arm
You're just a fool, just a fool, just a fool
