I Get High (I Still Get By)

I Get High (I Still Get By)

A Poem by Sgammato [Inertia The Musical]
"

Liberty is an underage drinker, yet she criticizes Token for smoking marijuana. Token gives her a lesson on laws: which ones we should follow, and why.

"
I Get High (I Still Get By)

TOKEN:

When cops say “Robbers, don’t take Token’s stuff”
that law is for us

When cops say “Rapists, don’t touch Jessica”
that law is for us

But when Liberty’s limited by uninhibited
‘War on Drug’ jargon

Tellin’ me I can’t light up in my home?
That law is not for us

You smell it and I can get locked up?
F**k that! That law’s definitely not for us!

Just leave me be
and then you’ll see
I’m fine without all the fuss



‘Cuz baby I get high, and I still get by.

I get high, and I still get by

Wonder why
when those

Oxies, Roxies, and other Toxic drugs
cause addiction      

And alcoholics criticize pot?
Such a contradiction!

Just please don’t spam me
with anti-drug concocted pot fiction  
     
‘Cuz Baby I get high, and I still get by. 

Lord I’m tellin’ ya I get high, and I still get by. 

Baby I get high, and I still get by. 

Lord I’m tellin’ ya I get high, and I still get by. 



Face is glowing, easygoing life,
although somewhat taboo 

Time is slowing,
still not knowing
what I’m put here to do

[Spoken]
Liberty, sometimes we have to pick and choose which laws to follow, because not all laws are made for us.
