The Offspring – The Opioid Diaries Lyrics

The Opioid Diaries Lyrics – The Offspring

Their end of days looks more like tomorrow
Their end of days started with a pill

But they’re not junkies like the news guy said
They’re just kids who’ve gotten over their heads
Big Pharma hooked them in the first place
And it won’t stop

Come on Sean, you’re on drugs
You’re gonna run out of luck
You could still find your way, you know
It won’t get better

Come on home while you can
I know I don’t understand
You could still find your way, you know
It won’t get better

When those pills are gone, what’s gonna happen?
When those pills are gone, what drug is next?

We’ve made a nation full of kids on dope
They’re looking down now at the end of their rope
So now who’s gonna come and fix this
Cause it won’t stop

Come on don’t tie it off
Be your undoer of knots
You could still find your way, you know
It won’t get better

Come on home while you can
I know I don’t understand
You could still find your way, you know
It won’t get better

It won’t get better
It won’t get better
It won’t get better
It won’t get better

Now we’ve made a nation full of kids on dope
They’re looking down now at the end of their rope
So now who’s gonna come and fix this
Cause it won’t stop now
Yeah!

Cause they’re not junkies like the news guy said
They’re just kids who’ve gotten over their heads
Big Pharma hooked them in the first place
And it won’t stop

Come on Sean, you’re on drugs
You’re gonna run out of luck
You could still find your way, you know
It won’t get better

Come on home while you can
I know I don’t understand
You could still find your way, you know
It will get better
