The Drugs Don't Work Anymore

I had a friends dad that died about fifteen years ago, he had lung cancer, he never smoked but he was a heroin addict (I only found out this after he passed on), this is quite obviously what killed him, I wrote the lyrics for this a few years back and coupled it with another song about depression. Stu recorded the piano for this a few months ago and we only got around to doing the vocals for it today.

We toned this song down to be like problems with ganja smoking, but as I said above the meaning and the reality is much harsher. Hard drugs kill!

This was made mainly with Kontakt 5 and Maxxpump's (Stu's) voice. I know there are many songs out there with this title and this is not the best by any stretch of the imagination, but I tried my hardest to get this to sound alright. But it's stu's vocals at the end of the day, but since he isn't a willing vocalist, its extremely hard to do any singer songwriter pieces which he is so fond of doing!

Thankyou for reading and thankyou for listening to a song of this very tough subject!

I'll give you 3.5 for this as your vocals are abysmal, please carry on your sequencing and never open your mouth in this way again!
