Hooked on love

I saw a twelve year old, he had a plastic bag
Another young man sucking on butane gas
I saw them reaching for a hand to hold
The next minute they were both stone cold

Don't abuse your body
Better use your brain
This generation's going insane
Better hooked on love
(Better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

So don't abuse your body
Better use your brain
This generation's going insane
Better hooked on love
(Better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

I found a young girl lying in a pool of blood
She had the mark of needles and a lack of love
I saw her friends who told her, she's a fool to try
But never dream she was bound to die

Don't abuse your body
Better use your brain
This generation's going insane
Better hooked on love
(Better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

And when the street sharp man next comes around
You better keep your head, you better stand your ground
No matter what the pressure, never make a deal
He might touch but he never can feel

Don't abuse your body
Better use your brain
This generation's going insane
Better hooked on love
(Better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

Then I saw you cruising' through the wild West end
You can't change the habits of a lifetime debt
Now, you're moving closer to the killing floor
You're half dead but you need to score

So don't get your kicks
For too high a price
The next time won't be so nice
Better hooked on love
(Better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

If you're feeling bored without a thing to do
You wanna be somebody then it's up to you
I ain't trying to tell you how to live your life
You might run but you never can hide

So don't abuse your body
Better use your brain
This generation's going insane
Better hooked on love
(You better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

And don't get your kicks
For too high a price
The next time won't be so nice
Better hooked on love
(Better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

Don't abuse your body
Better use your brain
This generation's going insane
Better hooked on love
(Better hooked on love)
That's a better drug
(Hooked on love)

Don't get your kicks
For too high a price
Next time won't be so nice
