Too much sugar

 
 
Chemically unbalanced,
slightly unhinged.
 
hanging on by a loose thread or it could be a cannon,
but hanging on because as crazy as the crazy do
I’m waiting here for you.
 
Over to the overture on the underpass and I’m not
sure that this idea’s the best,
 
there’s a one-armed bandit hold-up on
the way to the winning post,
( no idea where that came from)
 
at the coast?
down on the prom’
probably where the bandit’s from.
 
Can you feel the Ph changing
is there acid in your veins?
or will we all end up like Marley
rattling our chains?
