In this episode of Podsongs—the show where musicians interview inspirational people, as inspiration for a new song—Professor Carl Hart, author of Drug Use for Grownups and a campaigner for drug law reform, talks to American singer-songwriter Tanner Peterson about why everything we know about drug addiction is wrong.

BREAK THE SPELL

They’re coming again
They’re coming for my own heart
Just live and forget
Everyone plays their part

Need a reset
Spirits in the mind are breaking through
New consciousness
Visions of something I can’t prove

We’re changing slowly
But still falling onto ourselves
Can’t stop the controlling
Could melodies break the spell?

Illegal truth
Covered up like it’s suicide
Forbidden fruit
How can you tell me what is mine?

We’re changing slowly
But still falling onto ourselves
Can’t stop the controlling
Could melodies break the spell?

We’re changing slowly
But still falling onto ourselves
Can’t stop the controlling
Could melodies break the spell?

Time to grow up
'Cause it’s no rights if they control us
My whole life all I heard was “no drugs”
Coming from the motherfuckers that don’t even know drugs
And as I
Get to get a little closer
I can identify the propaganda like “hold up”
Then we can recognize that the lies never hold up
Whether you do a line, or wine, or you roll up
High Times couldn’t cover my mind by the byline
The news never spill the truth on a timeline
The boys in blue are the brutes in my lifetime
I been on sidelines and now it’s high time
Look at the country deposit
Locking my people for profit
How can you look in the mirror?
I cannot honor "Your Honor"
Chasing our happiness and I’m knowing the courage will cause it
What do we need? To get out the closet
Wassup?

We’re changing slowly
But still falling onto ourselves
Can’t stop the controlling
Could melodies break the spell?

We’re changing slowly
But still falling onto ourselves
Can’t stop the controlling
Could melodies break the spell?
Could melodies break the spell?
Could melodies break the spell?
