Can u believe there are plants that are illegal
Can you believe there is love that is illegal
Can you go remember the last time where you lost all control?
Where your body aches? Where your sanity is slipping?
Where your mother is hitting you and your father
is yelling at you and all you can do is cover your ears
and close your eyes?
All these tests and assignments they keep piling up,
people’s negative comments building up.
Do you know what your breaking point is?
Do you know at what temperature your body melts
and your heart freezes?
It’s addiction after addiction after addiction.
You throw away the blade, you pick up the pills.
You flush down the pills, you pick up the liquor.
But then finally, you get all your addictions taken away.
You pick up a book.
You pick up a pen.
You pick up a journal.
It’s so funny how all you wanted was some control of your life,
but you ended up drinking, and overdosing just to lose control again.
