Looking back on easy is not so hard when things get tough,

that shuffle thing I do when largactil’s running through me and
I’m not so sure I am me is okay,

The cotton wool that fills my brain becomes the wadding to ease my pain and whatever pill comes next is not that bad.

Side effects affect all sides unless you’re playing solo and you’re thinking what’s this all about when nothing is about you.

Battery driven is okay too
unless you feel run down and
find the battery is in fact, you.
