[Verse 1]
I remember the first time you overdosed
A fucking overload on meth, paramedics saved your ass,
you was close to ghost
You never did know which road to go

It’s like you rode the boat and sailed away and hoped to hit the golden coast
But you sank like the Titanic
The incident, it left your life damaged, and that’s when I panicked
You thought you had it locked,
well you ain’t on the right planet
If you're trying to live your life right, plan it

It’s like your mind vanished, you don’t even know that
I wish that we could go back, cause it’s so sad when I tell jokes and you don’t laugh
Like you used to,
I really hate to stress it, but you strange to mess with
So I keep my distance, cause you always got this blank expression
Like you’re confused and unaware of your surroundings

Emotions have gone and no one’s found it, it’s overwhelming
Your momma told you that drugs are bad
But you ain't listen 'til the fire burned your ass, now you understand


[Hook]
Now you always look like you don’t know me
And I’m mad at the world cause the meth took away my homie
(Give me back my homie, please come home)
I just wanna chill on the neighborhood block like we used to
(Where’d you go?)
I never would've thought my best friend would be gone in the future
But I was wrong


[Verse 2]
I should've stopped you when I had the chance to do so
But back then I had felt like that was too bold
You started hanging with new folks, and made the drug environment your new home
This world is too cold, could I have prevented this? Who knows?
They convinced you that this shit was cool and hip to do
Saying it would lift your mood and make you feel invincible

So you started skipping school, hanging with these wicked dudes
Unaware that when you got older you played a bigger fool

And it’s pitiful, where the fuck they at now?
In they mid-20s passed out inside of a crack house
Back when you met them I had doubts, they put you on the bad route
And when you needed they help to pick you up, they fucking backed out

They fucking got you, I can’t lie
But now your brain's fried, and you don’t even act like you’re the same guy

Your momma told you that drugs are bad
But you ain’t listen 'til the fire burned your ass, now you understand


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
I ain’t never felt this shit before, it gets me sore
I reminisce on us playing Nintendo 64
And that Christmas in '97 we got new crispy boards
And we was doing ollies in my kitchen on the slippery floor

Shit changed and it happened quick
But I can’t forget that you was the first homie I started rapping with
You could’ve had half of this back when I had established it

But now I have to sit and feel bad, look what your actions did
Man you were so outgoing and so hysterical
Seeing you now is just unbearable, it’s terrible

You should've made your choices wisely, fucking with poison ivy,
Without your brain please tell me what would your point in life be?
It’s a struggle to get your ass to listen
You really hurt me and the rest of your family with all your bad decisions

We always told you that drugs are bad
But you ain't listen 'til the fire burned your ass, now you understand


[Hook]

[Outro]
Excuse me do ya need a ride? Looks like you’re going downtown
Yes, hop in my ride, well hi, I’m Chris Dolmeth
I’m your best friend (Chris Dolmeth)
I’m all you need (Chris Dolmeth)
If you wanna succeed, hop in my ride
Well hi I’m Chris Dolmeth
