O my Friends have Said I'm an Acid Head

Title - O my Friends have Said I'm an Acid Head
Contributors - Unknown (male)
Reporters - Hamish Henderson

Summary - Fragment of a song about drug culture heard from a man on drugs:

Oh my friends have said I'm an acid head, with that I must agree,
But it's never dull when you're out your skull on the stuff called LSD;
Go outta your mind, leave your cares behind, make your Universe chaotic
And you'll feel free on ECT as a certified psychotic.



Acid, acid, that's a drug for me,
Acid, acid, short for LSD,
You can trip in your mind to Paris or Rome,
But the next place you go is a mental home.
