you want to try amphetamine?
methylated Ketamine?

have you seen the stat’s?
that’s a bad movie in which to
play a role.

Give me acetylene to set fire
to the dormant dream,
let’s wake the sleeping
not much point in them keeping
their eyes closed
when they never see
anything anyway.

I’ve seen them drinking gasoline,
eating boot polish because it contained
syphoning paraffin to get their fixes in,
it’s some serious shit when you’ll die
for a hit or
kill for a spliff.

These are the quicksands
the tightening wrist bands
the end of the good times
the start of the bad lands

hands up who still wants to try.
