Songtext „Your Only Friend“

This is cocaine speaking,
I can make you do anything for me.

I can make you cry for me,
I can make you fight for me,
I can make you steal for me,
I can make you kill for me,
I can make you cry for me, fight for me, steal for me, kill for me,
And in the end, I’ll be your only friend.

I can take your car from you,
Take your job from you,
Take your wife from you,
Take your life from you,
In the end, I’ll be your only friend.

Take a whiff of me, I’ll make you high,
Take a sniff of me, I’ll make you feel fine,
Take a shot of me, I’ll make you fly,
Take too much of me, I’ll make you DIE.

Album Liner Notes:

Phuture (formed by DJ Pierre. Spanky and Herb J in 1985) are a legendary act in the development of Chicago house known for their 1987 single „Acid Trax“, the biggest house record of the time and the track that began and defined the acid house sound. After crossing over to the UK, the single fueled the acid house explosion in England which evolved into the rave movement by the end of the decade.
DJ Pierre went on to work as Pierre’s Phantasy Club with Felix Da Housecat, produced another house classic „String Free“ by Phortune, and built up a formidable catalogue of both productions and remixes, becoming famous for his ‚wild pitch“ sound which put a spin on the acid house genre he helped develop.
