Michael Jackson Morphine Lyrics Drugs Demerol

Did Michael Jackson's song 'Morphine' from his 1997 album Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix foreshadow his death and tell of his Demerol addiction? Read the lyrics and listen to the song below...

Michael released 'HIStory in the Mix' as a follow up to 1995's 'HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I' album. 'In The Mix' contained five new songs including an original by Jackson called 'Morphine.'

The haunting track appears to be Michael's first lyrical take on the subject of drug addiction and eerily seems to foreshadow the King Of Pop's death. It kicks off with an assaulting beat and the lyrics "He got flat baby / Kick in the back baby / A heart attack baby / I need your body."

But a verse about morphine substitute Demerol is particularly notable after rumors of Michael's longtime drug abuse and reports that Jackson was injected with the painkiller just before his death.

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

Oh God he's taking 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
