there and back lyrics – biohazard

i’ve just returned from a long round trip
many tales i have to tell
now i don’t get high
so you think i’m not hip
but i’ve seen the gates of h*ll
how can a youth rise above all the sh*t
when surrounded
by such lousy influence?
he clutched the pipe, took his last hit
and n*body’s heard from him since

in this world of confusion
drugs were my solution
the pain was breaking my heart
i shut out my reality
nearing my fatality
found myself falling apart

miserable, horrible, life such an obstacle
making my own matters worse
to end up dead in a dark alleyway
or to ride in the back of a he*rs*
to die for a cause like pride or respect
or honor would make you quite worthy
a pitiful waste to live in the sewer
and die before you reach thirty

chorus (4x)

cop a bag as a crutch
copping out, lose so much
hangin’ out, dippin’ b*tts
lost my mind smoking dust
there and back

back in the days i was living a lie
too cool to show my feelings
too cool to cry
lost in a fog and unsure of my friends
with a one way ticket
headed straight for the end
as the flames burnt the rope
and my spirit cut loose
i found my self wrapped
in an emotional noose
i said to myself continue no longer
today i face the world with a mind
that is stronger

spent my time gettin’ nice
i cr*pped out rolling dice
look at me and my scars
now i live pure and hard
there and back (4x)
