INTERESTING DRUG

There are some bad people on the rise
There are some bad people on the rise
They're saving their own skins by
Ruining other people's lives
Bad, bad people on the rise
Young married couple in debt
- ever felt had ?
Young married couple in debt
- ever felt had ?

On a government scheme
Designed to kill your dream
Oh mum, oh dad
Once poor, always poor
La la la la la
Interesting drug
The one that you took
TELL THE TRUTH - IT REALLY HELPED YOU
An interesting drug
The one that you took
God, it really really helped you
You wonder why we're only half-ashamed ?

"Because ENOUGH is TOO MUCH!
...and look around ...
...can you blame us ? CAN you blame us ? "

Kirsty Maccoll joins Morrissey again in a charming light ballad with a desperate undertone. Morrissey's arch cynicism quickly reveals itself as mired in a need to avoid the real world, as he appeals to his parents for aid.
His commentary on the Government "ruining people's lives" is as per usual presented in a contradictorally light manner, continuing the mild facetiousness of the first track of "Bona Drag", in preparation for the heavy November Spawned A Monster.
There is much debate about the first line of this song, as in the video, the word "right" is scrawled on a blackboard, implying the line is properly "There are some bad people on the right", yet another stab at the Conversatives.
