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.
