Don't know if it's been discussed here before, I'm sorry if it was, but It's quite interesting....

It just ran to my head a few moments ago.

We all know his album " Blood on the dancefloor: History in the mix"

And in the song Morphine, he told us his "Death", just read the lyrics:

Morphine lyrics

He got flat baby
Kick in the back baby
A heart attack baby
I need your body

A hot kiss honey
He's just a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
So unrelying

I'm such a swine baby
All down the line daddy
I hate your kind baby
So unreliable

A hot buzz baby
He's one of us baby
Another drug baby
You so desire

Trust in me
Trust in me
Put all your trust in me
You're doin' morphine

Hoo!

They got place baby
Kicked in the face baby
You hate your race baby
You're just a liar

Your every lick baby
Your dog's a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
You soul survivor

She never cut from me
She never cut baby
I had to work baby
You just a rival

Always to please daddy
Right up and leave daddy
You're throwing shame daddy
So undesirable

Trust in me
Just in me
Put all your trust in me
You're doin' morphine

Go'on babe

Relax
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

Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking Demerol
Demerol
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

Demerol
Demerol
Oh God he's taking Demerol
Hee-hee-hee
Demerol
Demerol
Oh my Oh God it's Demerol
Hee
Oooh

Oh!

He got shit baby
Your dog's a bitch baby
You make me sick baby
You are a liar

Is truth a game daddy
To win the fame baby
It's all the same baby
You're so reliable

Trust in me
Trust in me
Put all your trust in me
She's doin' morphine

Hoo!

You just sit around just talkin' nothing
You're takin' morphine
Hoo!
Go'on baby
You just sit around just talking about it
You're takin' morphine
Hoo-hoo!
Just sit around just talking nothing about it
You're takin' morphine
You just sit around just talking about it
You're taking morphine
You just sit around just talkin' nothin'
And takin' morphine

Hoo-hoo
I'm going down baby
You're talkin' Morphine

Go'on baby!
Hoo!
Hoo!
Morphine!
Do it!
Hoo!
He's takin' morphine
Morphine!
Morphine!



And what also got me is this:


Morphine"

    * Written and composed by Michael Jackson
    * Produced by Michael Jackson

    * Engineered by Keith Cohen, Eddie DeLena, Mick Guzauski and Tim Boyle
    * Mixed by Keith Cohen

This is a song, that he wrote on his and - not like the others, except "Superfly Sister"- produced on his own!


And when was this album released?

Released    May 20, 1997
 ( There's the 7 again ;) )


I really think that his plans started at this time....and this song was his way to tell us, like a warning.

What do you think?

I think he was singing about his addiction... and it was a cry for help at the time he wrote it. He was often very autobiographical in his lyrics and this song was searingly honest.

It is very eery listening to it now as he "predicted his death" back then.

Interesting as he clearly understood his addiction, the pain it caused himself and to others around him and also he clearly understood the dangers.

Michael wrote this piece in first, second and third person, which he did in his work sometimes [which can be confusing] but like a lot of artists Michael wrote about his frustrations with other people in more than one piece and this particular song is one of them.  It's a hit at more than one person, not necessarily because it's written in 1st, 2nd and 3rd person, but because of the topics covered.  The people he was taking about know and knew exactly to whom it was directed.  Michael wasn't talking about himself.  This is one of my favorite songs.  I love the way he composed it.
