The Addict Addiction

THE ADDICT ADDICTION - Written by Carroll Bryant


What are you looking at?
Don't you even recognize yourself?
Why are you feeding off that?
Are you a glutton for the punishment?

Your self abuse
You make yourself a slave
The needle nourishment will take you to your grave

Are you aware now?
There's something going down
Do you even care now?
There's something going down

You taste the bitterness of life's malicious ride
You strive for excellence with the high that's killing you inside

No harm
No foul
You reason
Well, isn't that quite serene?
Treat yourself just like a heathen 
Living in a dream
Not reality

Are you aware now?
There's something going down
Do you even care now?
There's something going down

"Doctor, is he going to be okay?"

"I don't know. It's too soon to tell. You're fortunate to have gotten him here when you did. At least now, he's got more than half a chance."

You stand before your devil
He mocks your every word
Too much for you to handle
Your cries will go unheard 

Are you aware now?
There's something going down
Do you even care now?
There's something going down

"I'm sorry, we lost him."

"The Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures."

Are you aware now?
There's something going down
Do you even care now?
Now that you're buried underground?
