  • To all those people doing lines
    Don't do it, don't do it
    Inject your soul with liberty
    It's free, it's free

    To all the kids with heroin eyes
    Don't do it, don't do it
    Because it's not, not what it seems
    No, no it's not, not what it seems

    Salvation, salvation, salvation is free
    Salvation, salvation, salvation is free

    (Uh huh huh uh huh huh uh huh huh uh huh huh uh huh huh uh huh huh uh huh huh)

    Do do do do do do do do
    Do do do doooo
    Do do do do do do do do
    Do do do doooo

    To all the parents with sleepless nights
    Sleepless nights
    Tie your kids home to their beds
    Clean their heads

    To all the kids with heroin eyes
    Don't do it, don't do it
    Because it's not, not what it seems
    No, no it's not, not what it seems

    Salvation, salvation, salvation is free
    Salvation, salvation, salvation is free

    Salvation, salvation, salvation is free
    Salvation, salvation, salvation is free
