My congressman says I cant give my brother a clean syringe 
If he should get aids and die, that's just too bad 
My senator says I can't give my sister a clean syringe 
If she should get hepititis and die, that's just too bad 
My president says I cant give my brother a clean syringe 
If he should get hepititis and die, that's just too bad 
The policeman says I cant give my sister a clean syringe 
If she should get aids and die, that's just too bad 
My county superviser likes to think he's so much wiser 
Than all the doctors put together 
Who say we should give away clean syringes 
My city councilman says it's not a problem 
We're only gonna spend millions on treatment won't work 
For people who will die 
My community likes to claim immunity on the basis of homophobia 
And a lack of medical fact
Hey america there's needle users sleeping with your children
With your daughters, with your sons and with your husbands.
We got a law, says you can't own a needle. 
Without a presciption 
Do you think that ever kept anyone from shooting up? 
All the politicians say, we cant legalize exchange 
Because that would be sending the wrong message 
But did you ever notice, 
On every billboard, in every magazine, in every corner store, on every 
tv screen. 
The message is "buy cigarettes and alcohol" 
Don't you know drugs are everywhere , you can't stop it 
Criminalize it, make it profitable, ensure its longevity 
Don't you know drugs are everywhere, you can't stop it 
It's not a law enforcement issue, 
Addiction's a disease 
If you find your self in the position of having to share a needle with 
another person, 
Take the steps to ensure that you don't get infected. 
Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
That's step one 
Suck bleach up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
Suck bleach up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
Suck bleach up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
That's step two 
Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
Suck water up to the top of the needle, and squirt it out. 
That's step three, you're done 
We got a law, says you can't own a needle. 
Without a presciption 
Do you think that ever kept anyone from shooting up? 
All the politicians say, we cant legalize exchange 
Because that would be sending the wrong message 
But did you ever notice, 
On every billboard, in every magazine, in every corner store, on every

Don't you know drugs are everywhere, you can't stop it
