The "Deconstructed OdeToIntoxication" Ode to Sobriety would be an OdeToIntoxication except the song is about the singer's (or writer's) near-death from an OD, an addiction he or she actually wants to escape or has gone into treatment for, about someone's suicide from alcohol and/or drugs, or about anything else that is about the less fun side of intoxication.

to:

* German example 1: "Alkohol" by Herbert Grönemeyer. Descibes the kick, but the message at the end ("Alcohol is the ship you are going down with") is rather obvious.
* German example 2: "Saufen" by Music/DieArzte. General Health Surgeon's Warning! It sounds like your usual Fun Punk OdeToIntoxication if you don't read inbetween the lines.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqt8Z1k0oWQ "Can't Feel My Face"]] by The Weeknd is a sarcastic ode to cocaine with the line "I know she'll be the death of me, at least we'll both be numb," with "she" being a metaphor for cocaine.

--> Ashes to ashes, funk to funky\\
We know Major Tom's a junkie\\
Strung out in heaven's high\\
Hitting an all-time low\\
Time and time I tell myself\\
I'll stay clean tonight\\
But the little green wheels are following me\\
Oh, no, not again\\
I'm stuck with a valuable friend\\
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too."\\
One flash of light\\
But no smoking pistol

-->So you've got a prescription\\
And that makes it legal\\
I find the excuses\\
Overwhelmingly feeble\\

-->So -->I get involved, but I'm not advocating\\
Got an opinion, yeah, you're well up for slating\\
So
you've got a prescription\\
And

Now I find the excuses\\
Overwhelmingly
excuses overwhelmingly feeble\\
So you go to the doctor, you need pills for sleeping\\
Well, if you can convince him, then I guess that's not cheating\\
So your daughter's depressed, well, get her straight on the Prozac\\
But little do you know she already takes crack\\
Why can't we all, all just be honest\\
Admit to ourselves that everyone's on it\\
From grown politicians to young adolescents\\
Prescribing themselves antidepressants\\
But how can we start to tackle the problem\\
If you don't put your hands up and admit that you're on them\\
The kids are in danger, they're all getting habits\\
'Cause from what I can see, everyone's at it\\
