Listen to "Drug Dealer" below:

The hook for the new song is sung by Seattle's Ariana Deboo and the lyrics go:

My drug dealer was a doctor,
had the plug from big pharma,
he said that he would heal me,
but he only gave me problems,

My drug dealer was a doctor,
had the plug from big pharma,
I think he tried to kill me,
tried to kill me for a dollar.
