These songs about cocaine were probably written under the influence which is why they are vague and bizarre.
1. Bales of Cocaine
This song is about a farmer who finds massive amounts of cocaine in the hay at his farm. After consulting his brother, he takes it to Dallas and ends up making millions. He sells his farm and buys another one in a different part of the world. It explores a different outlook as far as cocaine is concerned and because an entrepreneurial angle has been tapped into, it is among the best ever made.
2. Lit up
This song is interesting and is quite disturbing, to say the least. The lyrics need not be analyzed because they are quite straight-forward and easy to understand. The character in the song does not miss any opportunity to light up and do what he has to.
3. My Michelle
My Michelle is about a woman whose father works with pornographic material and her mother is never around. She adored heroin at one times but it stopped agreeing with her after a certain point. Unfortunately, it is based on real-life events but thankfully the woman cleaned up and lived happily ever after.
4. That Smell
This song by Lynyrd Skynyrd is as bizarre as the man himself. One particular verse talks about how the central character is traveling in a new car with whiskey bottles all around him and a tree comes in his way. The air is full of smoke and he has taken too much coke which is why he needs to carry out some serious introspection.
5. Life in the Fast Lane
The Eagles are world-renowned for their ambiguous and uncertain songs which leave a lot to the imagination. The best portion of the song talks about how some people host outrageous and loud parties and pay massive bills the next day. One verse talks about how the drug covers every inch of the room.
