A frequenter of concert square
A consumer of ecstasy 
Thus was how I begot my teenage kicks
A cocktail mix of pills and beer
On a Saturday night 
Bound for club
To dance away
Human traffic
Writhing to the soundtracks of the summer of love
Inside the dome of a super club
As God is my D.J
A child of Robert Miles
Faithless insomniac 
I cant get no sleep 
My ears bled from the beat
Starring into my bedroom ceiling 
In the dark my pupils arch
Back to the strobe lights
I lay in wait
Counting sheep
Still underneath the chemical spell
Pulsations in my veins 
The birds who chirp
And dawning sun that thaws between my curtain 
Is the price the riders must pay
The entry tickets 
When going out to play
With drugs inside your system
