Legal High 04:14
Well, the hippies don't want to buy on the street They’re gonna get their fix from dispensaries They need a doctor's note to say it's OK To waste away another day Everyone’s a kid in this candy store It’s a Brave New World, it’s 1984. Eat me, drink me, vaporize You got nothing to lose You’ve got nothing but time It's a legal high It's not a crime Sane by design It's a legal high Chilling on the couch with Mom and Dad They got the best damn shit you ever had And your straight A sister amped on Adderall Is going to prep that SAT all night long Well Grandma's got her bottomless glass of wine And Grandpa microdoses to unwind Your cat’s got a stash of diazepam The dog's always good for some ketamine It’s a legal high Don't ask why It’s not a crime It’s a legal high Well I’m no Nancy I’ve done it all But it seems to me there’s something wrong When everyone needs to self-medicate Maybe it’s our world that’s gotta change I tell you what we're all going to do tonight We're going to get dressed up and go outside That's it Go outside It’s a natural high Give it a try! You’re gonna be alright It’s a natural high Hey, check out the sky It’s a natural high Give it a try! It’s a natural high

Rick Valentin spent a good part of the past 30 years touring and recording with the indie guitar group Poster Children. He also spent the '90s playing synthesizers with the instrumental electronic combo Salaryman. Thoughts Detecting Machines is Rick armed with only a guitar and laptop, building loops into songs that are simultaneously emotional and mechanical.
