My Buddy Adam Dead At 25 Heroin Overdose - Suicide?


BACK IN JULY, MY BUDDY ADAM DIED. HE WAS 25. THOUGHT HE HAD A HEART ATTACK, BUT IT TURNS OUT IT WAS A HEROIN OVERDOSE. DID HE GET A ROGUE BATCH OF HEROIN OR DID HE INTENTIONALLY O.D., ie-COMMIT SUICIDE? WE'LL NEVER KNOW.
ADAM SURVIVED FOR ABOUT A DAY, BUT HE WAS BRAIN DEAD AND HIS RELATIVES, KNOWING HE WOULD NEVER AWAKEN FROM THAT STATE OF SUSPENDED ANIMATION, PULLED THE PLUG AND LET HIM GO TO HIS GOD.
ADAM WAS NO DUMMY, BUT HE WAS AN ADDICT. HIS RELATIVES TRIED TO WISE HIM UP, BUT THEY COULDN'T GET THROUGH TO HIM. AN UNCLE OF HIS WHO WORKED AA FOR YEARS AND HAS LIVED A HAPPY SOBER LIFE, TOOK ADAM UNDER HIS WING. "WISE UP YOUNG MAN!", BUT ADAM WOULD HAVE NONE OF THAT! HE KEPT USING AND ABUSING AND DIED AS A RESULT. HE WAS 25. 25.
WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE, AN AIR FORCE VET IN MY ROOMING HOUSE BLEW HIS BRAINS OUT WITH A .357 MAGNUM. HE TO WAS 25.25. HE WAS PLAYING RUSSIAN ROULETTE. JUST 25. 25.
WTF? I'D LIKE TO ASK OBAMA AND ALL THOSE CONGRESS CRITTERS WTF ARE WE DOING IN AFGHANISTAN, THE HEART OF THE GOLDEN CRESCENT AND YET AFGHAN OPIUM CROPS ARE AT RECORD LEVELS. WE HAVE THE FULL WEIGHT AND MIGHT OF THE US MILITARY IN THIS REGION YET US POLICY IS DEFACTO LET 'EM GROW IT. SOMEHOW THE FINAL PRODUCT MAKES IT PAST CUSTOMS, THE DEA, HOMELAND SECURITY AND OTHER AGENCIES CHARGED WITH PREVENTING THIS SHIT FROM ENTERING THIS COUNTRY AND THEY FAIL MISERABLY. WHAT'S STOPPING SOMEONE FROM SMUGGLING A LIVE NUKE INTO THE COUNTRY IF THEY ONLY INTERCEPT 5% OF THE DRUGS FLOWING ACROSS THE BORDER? OUR WAR IN AFGHANISTAN IS A F'N JOKE! IF AMERICA REFUSES TO WIPE OUT THE OPIUM CROP IN IT'S ENTIRETY WHILE THE US HOLDS TOTAL MILITARY CONTROL OF THE COUNTRY, WHY HAVE AN AFGHAN WAR, WHY HAVE A "WAR ON DRUGS"? TO ALL THE GI'S IN COUNTRY, ENJOY THE HASHISH AND SMACK WHILE YOU CAN, REMEMBER TO PACK YOUR STEREO SPEAKERS WITH KILOS OF THE SHIT WHEN YOU RETURN YOU'LL NOT ONLY MAKE A KILLING, BUT YOU'LL GET TO KILL SOME MORE PEOPLE - FOR WHAT?
OPIUM AND OIL AND SILVER AND GOLD.
ONLY 25. 25.

"The Pass"

Proud swagger out of the school yard
Waiting for the world's applause
Rebel without a conscience
Martyr without a cause

Static on your frequency
Electrical storm in your veins
Raging at unreachable glory
Straining at invisible chains

And now you're trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring down into a heartless sea
Can't face life on a razor's edge
Nothing's what you thought it would be

All of us get lost in the darkness
Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutter
Dreamers turn to look at the cars
Turn around and turn around and turn around
Turn around and walk the razor's edge
Don't turn your back
And slam the door on me

It's not as if this barricade
Blocks the only road
It's not as if you're all alone
In wanting to explode

Someone set a bad example
Made surrender seem all right
The act of a noble warrior
Who lost the will to fight

And now you're trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring down into a heartless sea
Done with life on a razor's edge
Nothing's what you thought it would be

No hero in your tragedy
No daring in your escape
No salutes for your surrender
Nothing noble in your fate
Christ, what have you done?
