lyrics

(verse 1)
yo, the trash cans stunk, even the waste made us high,
inhaled cannabis skunk and got that first taste of crime
from a nickel to a dime to an eighth at a time
& finally weight, 'cause three point five for fifty ain't fly
the war on drugs is a money-wasting disgrace, the state's why
using guns to tell consumers what they-could-buy, and couldn't
based on lies, printed on paper made of wooden pulp
I opened the vaults, took a look at the books and gulped
'cause William Randolph Hearst, the real Citizen Kane,
used the newspapers he owned to say it drive your kids insane
and motivates caucaisian daughters to give niggers brains
and that it has no legitimate uses, which is strange
cuz to this day, a doctor can use heroine or cocaine
but it's a federal crime to prescribe hemp for pain
which made sense to me when I learned later
a machine called the decorticator was hurtin' his paper
'cause instead of wood pulp, it used hemp, which was cheaper
and produced printable product with superior features
we believe spurious teachings screamed by furious preachers
I can't help but think humans are quite curious creatures

(hook)
Crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl
light it up
crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl
light it up
crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl
light it up
crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl

(verse 2)
life can leave you scarred and detached, for Mic it got hard to relax
on guard 'cause in Sac it's real like a heart attack
between carjacks and jakes trying to smash my hardhat
I could feel myself start to crack, and I wanted no part of that
so I break apart a wrap and spark a sack
then step back a bit from life and try to see a broad perspective
like how we teach odd directives that keep us all raw and desperate
so I say thank God for lettuce... anyway, I can't afford a psychiatrist
plus they say 'put the hay away,' then turn around and tell you 'try this shit'
as they put a can of pills in your hand, for real, man?
I don't feel that plan, I prefer a no-frills plant to pills that can't
treat depression without causing side-effects
doctors provide that shit to patients but can't say they've tried it yet
so I say, shred the grapes to get away from the oppressive weight
just don't fuck around and smoke so much you end up stuck on section 8!

(hook)
Crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl
light it up
crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl
light it up
crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl
light it up
crack a satchel and pack a fat bowl
