Poisoned Blood

Even as the poison circulates

It’s better than feeling nothing

Out of money and willpower

Last days, last hours

Injecting a good rest tonight

Anything to turn dark red into bright white.


Oh you’re strong enough to say no

Looking down on someone feeling worthless

Just enough to pay everyone and cry

So taking dangerous needles to get by

Happens to turn the focus from deep red to bright white.


Can’t put a trigger to the head

Refuse to jump in traffic

Electrocution seems too harsh

Poison to veins coping with being unable to cope

A little bit of grocery money in the bloodstream

Helps to erase erasers erasing living another hour.
