WHAT ADDICTION SAYS...
Hey little girl, come on over here, I’ve got something you might need.
A pill to make you pretty, oh yes indeed!
I’m cunning, baffling, and powerful too.
I’m larger than life and bigger than you.
Nothing I say is ever true
For me, there isn’t anything, you won’t do.
At first, I’ll be your very best friend
I’ll love you to DEATH – till the very end
I’ll steal your thoughts, but you won’t know
It’s no longer you, who’ll be running the show
Your life will change, right away
You’ll wake up wanting me, every day.
People will tell you, to leave me alone
But you won’t listen, for you I own
No one else can interfere.
For if they do, they’ll pay dear
I won’t settle just for you, I want your entire family to
I want their finances and peace of mind
I want them hopeless, and broken, and no longer kind.
For its greed and hate, that make me tick
I’ll feed you blame and resentment, to make you sick
It’s really quite easy, you should see
I’m amazed they don’t ever, catch on to me.
They build shelters and safe injection sites
See my killing you, really is my right
There is nothing, they, won’t do for me
I’m a master manipulator, I’m God, and I’m the King
And when we meet, you’ll wear my ring.
People serve me in every way, allowing me freedom to have my say
Human kind is naive, and so eager to please
And this works so well… with my disease
I’m the plague, I’m death. I’m immoral and cruel
You’ll give me your life – Oh what a fool.
What starts out as fun quickly disappears.
I’ll age you faster than your years
Your skin will change, your organs too, I’ll take your teeth and brain cells too.
And when you make babies you recreate me, for I’m genetic, can’t you see?
But never mind. Just look away. You might even live to see another day.
You’re now a puppet, at my command. Our days are numbered, together we stand.
Don’t fret I won’t miss you, when you’re gone, for by then, I’ll have moved on.
They say I’m illegal, but that’s not true, for isn’t my biggest drug dealer you?
Pharmacies, Doctors, Safe Injection Sites, you guys are crazy! I’ve won the fight.
One in ten is infected by me. But I want you all and soon it may be.
Come here little boy, have a toke, you’ll find euphoria in my smoke.
