Adams, Ryan - The Drugs Not Working Lyrics




I was shooting in the back of the car
When the windows smashed on the police cars
I was swimming through the streets of New York
With my cocaine dagger and throats to cut
And it was making her cry...
But it was making me high

She was a hooker at the age of sixteen
All she wanted was the money, she didn't need an I.D.
She was a junkie, and I know it's cliche
But then so was her life, I mean, she lived in L.A.
And it was making her cry...
But it was making her high

And it was making her cry...
And it was making her high

Riot in my skull
The demons are coming
Los Angeles is dead
These drugs ain't working
Painted it all black
The chains are jerking
Los Angeles is dead
The drugs ain't working
Riot in my skull
The demons are coming
Los Angeles is dead
The drugs ain't working
Los Angeles is dead
The drugs ain't working
Los Angeles is dead

    I was shooting in the back of the car
    When the windows smashed on the police cars
    I was swimming through the streets of New York
    With my cocaine dagger and throats to cut
    And it was making her cry...
    But it was making me high

    She was a hooker at the age of sixteen
    All she wanted was the money, she didn't need an I.D.
    She was a junkie, and I know it's cliche
    But then so was her life, I mean, she lived in L.A.
    And it was making her cry...
    But it was making her high

    And it was making her cry...
    And it was making her high

    Riot in my skull
    The demons are coming
    Los Angeles is dead
    These drugs ain't working
    Painted it all black
    The chains are jerking
    Los Angeles is dead
    The drugs ain't working
    Riot in my skull
    The demons are coming
    Los Angeles is dead
    The drugs ain't working
    Los Angeles is dead
    The drugs ain't working
    Los Angeles is dead

    um actually the video you have is an exact ripped off of the Boards of Canada video ( they cut and mixed the original to make it suit the song) so yeah you did ripped them off you could of least re mix the original or even theirs. I don't care that you used it pff it is cool and it suits this song but don't take credit for something you didn't make.

  3. omgitsmattsutube

    to bad you ripped it off boards of Cananda...... but to be fair they ripped it off a safety video

    She was a junkie and I know it's cliche/But then so was her life, I mean, she lived in LA"? Pretty brilliant, right?
