I'm Clean (Working Title) - Ace Masters


#1

It’s weird how this song came about

So I was on my way home from the Linkin Park concert, step of at the train station which is like maybe 5-7 minutes from my house, this guy approches asked me how I was, I was like “yh i’m good, i’m cream cracked (nakard)” he responds that I need something to take the edge off, to get him off my back I was like "nah it’s ok, i’m clean, have been for a while"
We parted ways and well the chorus of this song came to mind and the rest fell into place

This is I’m Clean

When I was younger, I used to hit the drugs hard
It was just weed, well that was just the start
Began popping pills, exposed white powder to my nose
Stuck needles in arms, many feared i’d overdosed
It drove a wedge in between me and my family
My friends said that drugs was my worse enemy
But I didn’t want to hear it, I just wanted the next fix
Anything to help not make me feel anything

And then I hit rock bottom
I started to ask for help
It was a long road back
But now I’m out of that hell
And now

I’m clean from all the poison
I’m free from the control they had
I’ve escaped with my life in tact
I live with a conscience now that I’m clean

When I was younger, I drunk alcohol everyday
I drunk and drunk 'til the problem felt washed away
First it was just a few beers, maybe 4, 5 or six
Needed it in the morning, just to get my fix
I wanted a bottle of jack, vodka or anything like that
Anything with alcohol as a matter of fact
Whatever was around to make me numb in the brain
It was the only thing to help with the pain

And then I hit rock bottom
I started to ask for help
It was a long road back
But now I’m out of that hell
And now

I’m clean from all the poison
I’m free from the control they had
I’ve escaped with my life in tact
I live with a conscience now that I’m clean

(Instrumental break)

Once I hit rock bottom
And everyone began to help
The road to recovery was underway
To get me out of my hell
So I can say

I’m clean from all the poison
I’m free from the control they had
I’ve escaped with my life in tact
I live with a conscience now that I’m clean

Funny you should mention post concert drugs and exhaustion. We were talking about it on the lpu chat last night. :stuck_out_tongue: I was so tired I nearly fell asleep on the train, people were giving me looks because I looked either high or drunk. :joy:
