Did Michael Jackson Predict His Own Death? Check the Lyrics of the Song Morphine.

In a song titled Morphine off of Michael Jackson’s 1997 album Blood on the Dance Floor (info), MJ may have predicted his own death in a cry for help. Early reports of his death were citing staff members who said that MJ had taken Demerol before he went into cardiac arrest. Other reports are citing that the King of Pop was addicted to painkillers and that it was a situation that his family and friends were aware of.

Here are the lyrics that to Morphine, a song that Michael Jackson wrote in 1997:

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 thorwing shame daddy
So undesirable

Trust in me
Just in me
Put all your trsut 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!

From a closer look at these lyrics, this song appears to be extremely autobiographical in nature, and it is definitely an insight into his feelings and emotions during a time of addiction. If nothing else, this song is a first person account of his experience while he was fighting a painkiller addiction back in the mid to late 1990’s. Knowing that he took Demerol before he died yesterday, this line stands out: “Oh God he’s taking demerol.

Michael Jackson obviously had some issues, and he needed help. This song pretty much proves that. This song was likely a way for him to voice his emotions during a time when he was addicted to painkillers back in the 1990’s. Yet there is also something very haunting about it today. You might say conclude that this is a song where MJ predicted his own demise and death from an addiction to painkillers. Such a tragedy.
