Russian term or phrase: уколоться и забыться
Фраза из песни Высоцкого "Письмо в редакцию". Нашла вариант на англ здесь https://lyricstranslate.com/en/dorogaia-peredatcha-dorogaya-...
Но "to get shot and pass out" звучит как-то просто. Существует ли какой-то более жёсткий сленговый вариант перевода?
В контексте фраза используется примерно так "...не желаете ли вы "уколоться и забыться"... и вы замучаетесь "пить Бермудский треугольник"..."
Спасибо!

shoot up and forget it all
Explanation:
Whether or not that would fit into a verse translation of the song, I don't know.
