shelia looked back to the days of hope
as she put 80 units on a quarter of coke
draws her fist and adjusts her aim,
spend a little time with the ball and chain.
a few seconds pass her mouth runs dry
heart goes to pounding right behind her eyes
cant draw a breath nor utter a sigh
just grinds her teeth as the train rolls by
chorus: shelia is on the needle........shelia is on the needle......shelia is on the needle
and now she`s gone, gone forever.

when shelia was a girl she liked to ride
on the back of her daddy`s electra glide
but daddy got dead and the girl got lost
til she found a habit that was gettin her off
says she dont do crack cuz its just a tease
quarter gram slam is the way for me
cant warn her off cuz she`s havin fun
aint so much a bout the drug , just the way its done
chorus(same as above)
(bridge)

shelia run around tryin to bum a joint
cant do a shot cuz she broke her point
found a used rig lyin in the mud
damn fool slams down some other fools blood
angel of death creepin through her veins
knows she`s bound for the mystery train
wish she knew then what the girl knows now
the needle gonna kill her some way some how
chorus

btw, this song was written years ago, for a friend of mine who overdosed and died alone in a motel room bathroom, leaving behind a wife and two kids. i just changed the gender. this is a 80s style metal song.

It's quite good and i could definately hear a good 80s metal song in the background as i read. Also it makes a very welcome change from relationship songs which seems to be the main thing i find online lol. keep up the good work

thank you for your comment. i know the song is stark, with out much finesse. but it was written that way on purpose. i didnt want any riddles or interpretations. just raw in your face, with an unhappy ending as so often happens in hardcore drug use.
