Adderall Boy

Yeah I am an Adderall boy. My grades really sucked and they gave it to me. The doctor asked me a bunch of questions and then boom, Adderall.  I think they figured a pill would keep me from flunking. Goodbye sleep. Goodbye food. Goodbye good times man. I wanted to jump out of the car and I stared thinking about grabbing the wheel from mom and driving us into an oncoming car. And so I started smoking pot.

I mean I could eat then and I didn't feel like I was going to jump out of my skin. And I could sleep. Do you know what it's like not to sleep for years? That's Adderall man. You don't sleep. You don't eat. You just get skinny and jumpy. So I smoked pot like every day. When I got up and when I went to sleep. And in between. Now I could sit in the back of the classroom and my leg wouldn't jump all the time.

But they busted me for getting high in the bathroom. I don't know how they knew but they scored a bud out of my backpack and boom, off to rehab. So then I'm in this dumpy place with all these Mexicans who are hardcore. They are doing heroin and dealing and I'm like the high school kid. But we played basketball by the dumpster and that was cool. They gave me some heroin. Only ten bucks a bag. And that shit is like wow.

You don't care about anything then. And so I dropped out of school, well they kind of kicked me out after they found the heroin. And now I'm like in some rehab  place where you live and have to have your pee tested three times a day. And they got like a school and everything, Oh, and my grades, they still suck.
