In the '70s, everybody thought drugs were just good times.
by Aimee Mann

In the '70s, everybody thought drugs were just good times.

I don't care.

You know what, the drummer is my manager.
He's busy.
And I'm busy.

but it wasn't great.

Everybody kind of understands, Oh yeah you take drugs
and it does something to your brain and then you can't stop.
It's easier to describe that shame, that horrible feeling
of not being able to control your own life.
