B.o.B Substance Abuse Lyrics

[Intro]
Substance
Sub-sub-substance
Sub-sub-substance
Yeah, uh, substance

[Chorus]
Abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol
Substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol

[Verse]
Abusin’ from sick, high choosin’
Nigga, God bless you, I’m a god, bless you
Four projects in, what you thought I was gon’ do?
Smoke any less weed, pop any less shrooms?
Bob, Bob, Bob, this is your man, okay
This is your mind on drugs
You have any idea what this means?
It means I’m high as fuck
They describe teens all type of stuff
Should have calmed me down, should have hyped you up
Even the side effects got side effects
As if you ain’t already depressed enough
So what is abuse to smoke out, I need its use
Not even for pharmacy use
You just say no, I say let’s roll up a doob
And turn up a pot of soup
Off of who? Off of like formula food
Or hormones that farmers produce?
I come with the truth, I like in the now with no roof
Don’t know what a doctor would do
When people get high, I just get high off this weed
Don’t need no alternative route
I’m stuck on the moon, don’t fit in, bet I’m in the loop
And no, there ain’t no substitutes

[Chorus]
This substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol
Substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol

[Verse 2]
Yeah, some stories too true to tell
And some made up ’cause these days good music don’t always mean music sells
You either star in a TV show, sell dope
Scams, swiper have shoes to sell
Huh, it’s all about the headlines
All about the rumors and the groupie tells
Life is a choice and I choose ’em well
Might as well jump a coupe off the motherfuckin’ roof
And parachute in a suit, 100 bitches below
200 titties salute, salute, salute, huh (substance)
So what is abuse? This shit ain’t prescribed to the youth
Was on ’til several law suits
How they’d get approved and then from the shelves it’s removed?
A new one gets reintroduced
Who’s makin’ the rules?
The war that’s on drugs did to weed what proambition did to booze
But weed doesn’t kill
Can’t say the same if you drunk and decide you gon’ go for a cruise
The war that’s on drugs actually creates all the violence
And problems we see on the news
I’m callin’ a truce, they been usin’ all kind of nukes
But the public’s no longer confused

[Chorus]
This substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol
Substance abuse, abuse, yeah, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, look, abuse, what
Substance abuse, abuse, abuse
Talkin’ ’bout weed and alcohol, weed and alcohol

[Skit]

Do you have a happy loving family and a dog?
Well you can fuck that up here

Man, I had a nice car that was almost paid off
And then I went and took […]
And that shit fucked my whole life up
Hi, I’m James, I’m 33 and I used to have a girlfriend
And when she took […], she fucked the whole squad
Hi, I’m Henry and I sell my body for […]
And I’m Tim and I sell Henry for […]
