I was at a party; I was having fun
It was getting dark; the night had just begun
All the normal games were played
On their heads, they wore lamp shades
Then a little bad, things got
Some kids were sitting around smoking pot
They looked at me, “Would you like a joint?”
“Everyone’s doing it” “I guess that’s a good point”
I lit one up, and took a puff
Smoke flew out of my mouth after just one huff
The room started spinning, I was getting drowsy
Then I started to feel really lousy
I fell on the floor, the room went pitch black
It was like I was wearing a burlap sack
The next thing I knew, I was in a white room
There were doctors around me; a presence of gloom
“She’s not going to make it through the night” they said
I knew it right then, I’d OD’d, I was dead
Can you die from pot? My mind was blown
But it was laced with PCP, I wish I had known
From heaven above, I watched my wake
The hearts of my friends and my family did break
I’m gone from the world, the dust I have bit
All because someone said “everyone’s doing it”
You’ve heard this a million times, me too
But if everyone jumped off a bridge, would you?
That fateful night, the several joints I did smoke
That’s when I jumped off the bridge, my own spirit broke
So the next time you hear that tired old phrase
Think “Will I die over this, or will it bring me praise?”
Then maybe you’ll live to see the next day
If I did it over again, I’d do it that way
If all you’re friends jumped off a bridge, would you?

Unfortunately I did, but what about you?
