"Dope" is a song by The Power Station, released on the album Living In Fear by Chrysalis-Capitol-Guardian Records on 30 September 1996.

About the songEdit

The song was written in the pre-recording stage of Living In Fear, with the same lineup as for their previous album in 1985 (Robert Palmer, Andy Taylor, John Taylor and Tony Thompson). However, John Taylor was going through a divorce at the time, as well as entering drug rehab, and pulled out before the song was recorded. Instead Bernard Edwards, the producer, played bass guitar and took over as the group's official fourth member.

"Dope" is an up-tempo rock song featuring strong guitar chords performed by Andy Taylor. The song has also been performed by John Taylor Terroristen, with a video version released on Better Off Alive.

LyricsEdit

I can take you all right now
Kick the shit tomorrow too
I know what you make me say
I know what you make me do
Tired of being pushed around
By a chemical like you
Doesn't matter who you use
Dope is what dopers do

Pick 'em up and throw 'em down
You're a source of revenue
Pulverise and snort you up
Turn all kinds of shades of blue
I could give you all my dough
I could lose my life to you
Swallow, shoot, inhale or chew
Dope is what dopers do

I could use another hit
Anything you've got'll do
I can take you unrefined
I can take you cut in two

You give me a one track mind
Maybe you could make that two
I seem to be out of cash
Let's make that an i.o.u.
Vanish in a cloud of smoke
Disappear up a tube
Dopin' is a dopers does
Dopin' is what dopers do
