Morphine

 Michael Jackson penned this tune while battling his addiction to prescription painkillers in rehab. Mr. Jackson undergone extreme pain in medicating Lupus(an auto-immune disease) that required numeral shots on the scalp.

 O how Jackson yearned for another dose to quickly ease the pain. But his conscience wouldn't let him. "Morphine" became a metaphor for an undisclosed pain reliever. "Babe" either could've meant his doctor pushing jackson like a street pimp or his ulterior self-A battle of the mind.

 Whatever meaning Michael was portraying, it's clear he was struggling with physical addiction! If it wasn't for Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor or his loving family, he might've died well before the age of 50.

Update: Unfortunately Michael did fall back into the habit while preparing his massive comeback! Unfortunately, those decisions cost him big time!:(

Other then those few swears, this track is fantastic. Mike really rocks when he goes Heavy Metal!

Morphine (a.k.a Just Say No) Lyrics

He got flat, baby
Kicked in the back, baby
A heart attack, baby
I hate your power

A hot fix, honey
He dug the ditch, baby
You make me sick, baby
So unreliable

I’m such a swine, baby
All down the line, Debby
I hate your kind, baby
So unreliable

A hot buzz, baby
He want the buzz, baby
Another drug, baby
You don’t deserve it

Trust in me
Trust in me
Put all your trust in me
You’re doin’ morphine

"You heard what the doctor said?"

He got the place, baby
Kicked in the face, baby
He hate your race, baby
You’re not a liar

You’re every lick, baby
Your dog’s a ditch, baby
You make me sick, baby
You talk survival

She never come for me
She never want, baby
I got you up, baby
You’re just a rival

Always a play, daddy
Right up your league, Debby
You’re throwin’ shade, shabby
So undesirable

Trust in me
Just in me
Put all your trust in me
She doin’ morphine
Go on, baby

Refrain
Relax, this won’t hurt you
Before I put it in
Close your eyes and count to ten
Don’t cry, I won’t convert you
There’s no need to dismay
Close your eyes and drift away
Demerol, Demerol
Oh my, he’s taking Demerol
Demerol, Demerol
Oh my, he’s taking Demerol

He’s tried hard to convince her
To give him more of what he had
Today he wants it twice as bad
Don’t cry, I won’t resent you
Yesterday you had his trust
Today he’s taking twice as much
Demerol, Demerol
Oh my, he’s taking Demerol
Demerol, Demerol
Oh my, he’s got his Demerol
Heee...ooh...
Ooww!

"You heard what the doctor said?"

He got hit, baby
Your dog’s a ditch, baby
You make me sick, baby
You are a liar

He shoot the game, daddy
Deep in the pain, baby
You’re all the same, baby
You’re so reliable

Trust in me
Just in me
Put all your trust in me
She’s doin’ morphine

You just sit around
You’re talkin’ of it
You’re takin’ morphine
Go on, baby X5
It's goin’ down, baby
You’re talkin’ morphine
Go on, baby
Morphine
Do it
She’s takin’ morphine
Morphine X2
