Dressup, you're right. I've always had a soft spot(so to speak) for Chrissie Hynde, but some of her lyrics certainly indicate drug involvement.

"...came in the house, like a pigeon from hell
That got in our eyes and descended like flies."

this from the same woman who wrote about her new baby

"Welcome here from Outer Space
The Milky Way's still in your eyes
You found yourself a hopeless case
One who's seeking perfection on Earth
Or some kind of rebirth."

How about the King of the Esoteric Line, Michael Stipe.

"Birdy in the hand, part of Life's rich demand
And its urgency, begin and I missed it
I looked for it, and I found it,
Miles Standish proud - Congratulate me"
