The Beatles, Hendrix, Leary, and Grace Slick,
Ken Kesey’s Pranksters and the Grateful Dead–
All advocates of LSD for kicks–
Led people to destruction of their heads.

They said the drug expanded hu–man minds
And raised the consciousness a high degree:
“Take LSD,” they crooned, “and you will find
The love and clarity to set you free!”

False prophets of the 60s leading young
And innocent Americans astray,
With the remarks they made and songs they sung
They damaged many men, but did they pay

For broken hearts and souls and suicides?
They gave the kids bad trips: They lied, they lied.
