Take a journey inside the thinking and rationale of someone caught in the grips of addiction.

Lyrics to:
Sirgin - High

[chorus]
His mamma told him to be strong so he don't cry
His daddy turned away before his game time
Avoiding every question so he don't lie
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high....
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high.... (X2)

[First Verse]
In life, there's many ways that you can go.. right or left..
or up and then down quickly.. I ask you to stay with me
Good morning the sun comes up.. Good night the sun falls...
But life's like a wave .. hold onto the surfboard
My dad was long gone...
And I would try to be funny ..
To try and hide the scars from thinking he didn't love me...
Or didn't want me.. mamma tell me, I know your busy
And doing a fine job of raising us in this city
Though I feel a burden heavy on my heart and my soul
And if I knew the way to fix it I would be at home
And everything I try do right just keeps on going wrong
But if you listen to my cries you'll know that they're all gone
Cos I done met this lady and she takes away my pain
And she don't have no preference she just dances in the rain
And makes me feel calm so that I can try express
I'm telling you my story hope that you don't think no less

[Chorus]
His mamma told him to be strong so he don't cry
His daddy turned away before his game time
Avoiding every question so he don't lie
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high....
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high.... (X2)

[Second Verse]
I sat down after you left..
This ice stole my world, I looked back It was gone..
And this is what I said, It's one of the biggest things in the country
In the papers...
It takes mothers and brothers.. sisters and fathers
The whole lot, ..It doesn't have a preference..
What-they-care about is you have a gift so think about the message..
Every-time-you-feeling-down remember this, at least you livin
And-you-know I'll be right there, don't ever think of me as missing
Even-though I can't be there to watch my daughter graduate
Talk to my son coz he feels sad, ..coz his dad's away
I hope you tell em who I was before I hit the rails
About the times we'd jump the fence at the show and bail
My childhood some of the best times we laughed and cried
And never tried to hide the way that we felt inside
I wish I never would of done it when my heart stopped
That's when I saw my world fade and my body drop... drop

[chorus]
His mamma told him to be strong so he don't cry
His daddy turned away before his game time
Avoiding every question so he don't lie
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high....
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high.... (X2)

[Bridge]
Yo I'm tellin you my story
Hope that you don't think no less....
Look in the mirror
You should...
Look in the mirror (X4)

ahhh

[chorus]
His mamma told him to be strong so he don't cry
His daddy turned away before his game time
Avoiding every question so he don't lie
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high....
That's why he's out looking for ways to get high.... (X2)
