Was this Michael's cry for help? Remember MORPHINE song from '97 & Demerol..Predicting his future :(

http://www.youtube.com/wa...bUxSJEhWUo


I don't know if it had been mentioned as I don't stalk the boards or whatever but this came into my mind a few hours after his passing. If this was already mentioned can someone direct me to the post. He's screaming about Morphine, Demerol, taking twice as much.....

Relax....this won't hurt you
Before I put it in, close your eyes and count to 10
Don't cry
I won't convert you
There's no need to dismay
Close your eyes and drift away
Demerol Demerol
Oh God He's taking Demerol

He's tried hard to convince her
To be over what he had
Today he wants it twice it bad
Don't cry
I won't resent you
Yesterday you had his trust
Today he's taking twice as much

Then repeats the Demerol part

eek eek eek eek eek eek sad sad sad sad


Oh Damn!!! This kills my soul just listening to it, imagine what pain MJ must have been in, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, physically sad. Was this his secret cry for help? The eerie part, to me anyway, while this Demerol part is playing the background music sounds that of a breathing machine, heart monitor....anyone else hear this also? This sound always stood out in my mind when I first heard it. I was like WHAT? WHY? What did you think about this song then and now? Was he predicting his future or death?

"Today he's taking twice as much....Close your eyes and drift away" sad sad

I'm sorry MJ, I am heart broken I so miss him! He is and was the the King Of Everything!

I actually love this song.
I thought it was about his previous addiction.
But the lyrics could be seen as eerily prescient.

Morphine lyrics
He got flat baby
Kick in the back baby
A heart attack baby
I need your body

A hot kiss honey
He's just a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
So unrelying

I'm such a swine baby
All down the line daddy
I hate your kind baby
So unreliable

A hot buzz baby
He's one of us baby
Another drug baby
You so desire

Trust in me
Trust in me
Put all your trust in me
You're doin' morphine

Hoo!

They got place baby
Kicked in the face baby
You hate your race baby
You're just a liar

Your every lick baby
Your dog's a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
You soul survivor

She never cut from me
She never cut baby
I had to work baby
You just a rival

Always to please daddy
Right up and leave daddy
You're thorwing shame daddy
So undesirable

Trust in me
Just in me
Put all your trsut in me
You're doin' morphine

Go'on babe

Relax
This won't hurt you
Before I put it in
Close your eyes and count to ten
Don't cry
I won't convert you
There's no need to dismay
Close your eyes and drift away

Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking demerol
Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking demerol

He's tried
Hard to convince her
To be over what he had
Today he wants it twice as bad
Don't cry
I won't resent you
Yesterday you had his trust
Today he's taking twice as much

Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking demerol
Hee-hee-hee
Demerol
Demerol
Oh my Oh God it's Demerol
Hee
Oooh

Oh!

He got shit baby
Your dog's a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
You are a liar

Is truth a game daddy
To win the fame baby
It's all the same baby
You're so reliable

Trust in me
Trust in me
Put all your trust in me
She's doin' morphine

Hoo!

You just sit around just talkin' nothing
You're takin' morphine
Hoo!
Go'on baby
You just sit around just talking about it
You're takin' morphine
Hoo-hoo!
Just sit around just talking nothing about it
You're takin' morphine
You just sit around just talking about it
You're taking morphine
You just sit around just talkin' nothin'
And takin' morphine

Hoo-hoo
I'm going down baby
You're talkin' Morphine

Go'on baby!
Hoo!
Hoo!
Morphine!
Do it!
Hoo!
He's takin' morphine
Morphine!
Morphine!

I always felt this song was from his personal experience but I thought it was something that was in the past.
Been gone for a minute, now I'm back with the jump off

After hearing about him being on that stuff during the trial I'm convinced it wasn't a past issue. Ironically he was taking morphine and demerol during the first allegations (alongside painkillers). He got back on that stuff but it's unclear when tho.

I've always found this song hard to listen to(considering my own situation).

But this is ALL the more reason to keep from listening to it. That pain in his voice rang true after all.

This really aches my heart sad

God! History and BOTDF are the two albums of his that I listened to most out of his work and even after the thousands of times I've heard these songs it keeps shocking me how personal they really are. I mean I've always known they were personal, I just never realised the true pain and passion that went into these songs. It breaks my heart that I ignored this kind of stuff. Especially now that I can't even listen to his music anymore

It doesn't for me. I'm glad he's not suffering. I'm sure if I play his older music again, I'll smile.

I don't know, I can't really listen to his younger music. I heard music and me last night playing on the montage at the end of some special on NBC, oh it got to me.

Good point. I'm not watching none of his specials actually.
