Amphetamine runs through my veins,
Masking what's real it attacks the brain.
My body is tired and my mind is weak,
Wheels keep turning, I can not sleep.
Nothing makes sense, going insane,
How do I break loose from these chains?
Wanting, craving a sober mind,
In pursuit, what do I find?
Another addiction, this one is low.
It evens things out, take it slow.
Now I have found a new drug of choice.
6 bucks a pop, an opioid.
Hydrocodone kidnapped me, I can't get free.
It started at want, and now it's a need.
I know I'm addicted but I don't want to stop.
It stole my heart and busted the lock.
Intense relaxation, shallow breaths.
Warm fuzzy feeling inside of my chest.
I fear for loss of this feeling I get.
For when I come down, I know I'll be sick.
I'd do almost anything just to get more.
I need to get sober, but I also want more.
It's no longer enough, so I pick up the phone,
Who answered my call? Methadone.
I suppose for now this will do.
Addiction wins, again I lose.
They keep getting stronger, the drugs that I take.
'Tomorrow I'll stop', today it's too late.
