B.o.B – Substance Abuse (Ether Album)


[Verse 1]
Was on ’til several law suits
Substance
Smoke any less weed, pop any less shrooms?
Yeah, uh, substance
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what

Can’t say the same if you drunk and decide you gon’ go for a cruise
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol
Man, I had a paying job
Side effects may include nausea, back pain, crippling depression
A new one gets reintroduced
Should have calmed me down, should have hyped you up
You either star in a TV show, sell dope
Sub-sub-substance
The war that’s on drugs did to weed what proambition did to booze
If you take any other drugs, talk to your doctor about Kaporthaflol
Scams, swiper have shoes to sell
And parachute in a suit, 100 bitches below
Off of who? Off of like formula food
[Chorus]
How they’d get approved and then from the shelves it’s removed?
You just say no, I say let’s roll up a doob
[Chorus]
Suicidal thoughts, homicidal thoughts
And some made up ’cause these days good music don’t always mean music sells
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Hi, I’m Henry and I sell my body for Kaporthaflol, And I’m Tim and I sell Henry for Kaporthaflol
And then I went and took Kaporthaflol
So what is abuse to smoke out, I need its use
Abusin’ from sick, high choosin’
But the public’s no longer confused
I’m callin’ a truce, they been usin’ all kind of nukes
Do not operate machinery while taking Kaporthaflol
And no, there ain’t no substitutes
And when she took Kaporthaflol, she fucked the whole squad
But weed doesn’t kill

Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Huh, it’s all about the headlines
[Verse 2]
[Chorus]
I come with the truth, I like in the now with no roof
Four projects in, what you thought I was gon’ do?
Man, I had a nice car that was almost paid off
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
You have any idea what this means?
Do you have a happy loving family and a dog?
All about the rumors and the groupie tells
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
They describe teens all type of stuff
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol

[Skit]
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
This is your mind on drugs
Yeah, some stories too true to tell
Not even for pharmacy use
Life is a choice and I choose ’em well
200 titties salute, salute, salute, huh (substance)
And turn up a pot of soup
Bob, Bob, Bob, this is your mind, okay
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol
As if you ain’t already depressed enough
Substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Sub-sub-substance
And that shit fucked my whole life up
[Intro]
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Who’s makin’ the rules?
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol

And problems we see on the news
This substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Nigga, God bless you, I’m a god, bless you
I’m stuck on the moon, don’t fit in, bet I’m in the loop
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol
Even the side effects got side effects
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what

Don’t need no alternative route
Don’t know what a doctor would do
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
It means I’m high as fuck
Or hormones that farmers produce?
Human trafficking, bulimia and chronic paralysis
Well you can fuck that up here
Might as well jump a coupe off the motherfuckin’ roof
Schizophrenia, insomnia, PSTD, ADD, ADHD
Headache, diarrhea, financial dependencies
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Hi, I’m James, I’m 33 and I used to have a girlfriend
When people get high, I just get high off this weed
So what is abuse? This shit ain’t prescribed to the youth

If you take [?]
Do you live a healthy lifestyle?
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol
The war that’s on drugs actually creates all the violence
Infidelity, unemployment, sign of bankruptcies
Abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
This substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
