No tricks
Up my sleeve
I kicked the downs
And now I'm clean
No shakes
Up my spine
I beat the speed and I
Dumped the wine

No tracks
That was yesterday
I changed my style
The way I play
(Don't you believe it)
No blues
No depression
No more panic
Or obsession

Don't you believe
Anything he said
All them junkies talk that way
It's just as bad as it was before
I see the man knockin' at his back door

... this kid's straight
And put on ice
The street corner deals at any price
Come on and check my veins
And check my eyes

No tracks
That was yesterday
I changed my style
The way I play
(Don't you believe it)
No blues
No depression
No more panic
Or obsession

Some tricks
Just go away
And other tricks
They're here to stay
(Oh don't you know me)

Sometimes my spirit's willin'
The flesh is weak and
That's what's killin'

Don't you believe
Anything he said
All them junkies talk that way
It's just as bad as it was before
I see the man knockin' at his back door

Hey now this kid's straight
Put on ice
The street corner deals at any price
Come on and check my veins
And check my eyes

I tried so hard
But I'm hurting for another fix
It's just this habit
I, I can always kick
What do you say there friend?

(Don't you call me..)
It's just a game
And I can beat it any day
No matter what this lovely lady say
Hey, wanna be my friend?

Some tricks
They go away
And other tricks
They're here to stay
(Oh don't you know me)

Sometimes my spirit's willin'
My flesh is weak and
That's what's killin'

Don't you believe
Anything he said
All them junkies talk that way
It's just as bad as it was before
I see the man knockin' at his back door

I said this kid's straight
And put on ice
The street corner deals at any price
Come on and check my veins
And check my eyes
