Song Description

Country rock track to try to raise awareness of the dangers of taking so called Legal Highs.

Story Behind the Song

There's increasing concern that young people in particular are becoming victims of - so called - Legal Highs. The following is an extract from Frank, a UK Government drug info website: "'Legal highs' that are actually legal contain one or more chemical substances which produce similar effects to illegal drugs (like cocaine, cannabis and ecstasy). These new substances are not yet controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and there is often not enough research about them to know about their potency, adverse effects from human consumption, or when used with other substances or alcohol. 'Legal highs' cannot be sold for human consumption so they are often sold as incense, salts or plant food to get round the law. The packaging may describe a list of ingredients but you cannot be sure that this is what the product will contain. Just the fact that a substance is sold as 'legal' doesn't mean that it's safe or legal. You can't really be sure of what's in a 'legal high' or what effect it's likely to have. Many 'legal highs' are sold under brand names like 'Clockwork Orange', 'Bliss', 'Mary Jane' and have been directly linked to poisoning, emergency hospital admissions including in mental health services and, in some cases, deaths." This song is just one effort to try to raise awareness of the dangers involved.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Nice tune. Quite enjoyable. Balanced Production. Always nice to hear lyrics.

    - Steve Dafoe - Songwriter

This song greats you with vocals right out of the chute and the story begins. And a powerful story it is. The finely played instrumentation pops in their to support things just right. A full sounding rock/folk song that retains a simple, singer/songwriter feel that can sometimes get lost when developing a tune. Awesome stuff.

    - Billy Pilgrim
Lyrics

LEGAL HIGH
© 2015 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley

Opening chord:
Key: D
BPM: 126

Verse One:
Her friends had tried them, so they must be good
Buy them in the high street, what can be so wrong
Talking about them in the neighbourhood
Didn't want to look stupid so she went along

Verse Two:
Went up to the counter they were not so sure
So they bought some powder in a shiny pack
The man, who's not called a dealer anymore
Said no refunds, we're take nothing back

Chorus:
Danger danger, are they deaf and blind
It could be poison in a cool disguise
Push the warnings to the back their minds
It'll be OK, 'cos it's just a legal high

Verse 3:
Off on their own to find a quiet place
Where they can take that powder that'll make them fly
They're not so sure now, but they won't lose face
A normal girl, an ordinary guy

Chorus:
Danger danger, are they deaf and blind
It could be poison in a cool disguise
Push the warnings to the back their minds
It'll be OK, 'cos it's just a legal high

Bridge: Feel that rush, see those sights
They could be going anywhere tonight
Pull it down, take it in
Like a hand grenade, you've just removed the pin
It should be great but she's feeling bad
Her brains on fire, is she going mad
Can't slow down, it's flashing by
It should be fine 'cos it's a legal high
Verse 4:
They're not aware of all the flashing lights
The paramedics seen it all before
Dear god don't let me die tonight
And the man in the shop - he's just sold some more
Chorus:
Danger danger, is she deaf and blind
Was it poison in a cool disguise
Just push those warnings to the back of your mind
It'll be OK it's just a legal high

Danger danger, is she deaf and blind
Was it poison in a cool disguise
Just push those warnings to the back of your brain It'll be OK, it's just a legal high

Just a legal high
