This work has reached the exceptional level
A drug addict's lament

The evil within



Started off just 'smokin' weed'
Then moved on to 'snorting a line'
Needed something bigger to feed
This addiction that was mine

Heroin was the ultimate high
But led to an overdose
Cold turkey was my only lie
Death was pretty close

Then comes along a party drug
Ecstasy became the frill
But along came the biggest thug
'Ice' took me way downhill

Took me to another place
A world I always craved
Takes a life I could never replace
It's not good memories that are saved

My God, my arms are itchy now
Sores and scabs across each one
Keep on making this solemn vow
This drug I'll try and shun

Keep on saying I'm in control
But I'm not outside looking in
Now taken over, my life whole
My patience is wearing thin

Drugs have stolen my life from me
My personality has been taken
Why was I so blind to see
The family I've forsaken




I have never touched a drug in my life
Life is my only high
I write this on behalf of those who have fallen into
this life's evil trap
I have lost good friends from overdoses
I have seen families torn apart
But still this evil walks our streets like the grim reaper waiting to pounce
To those arsehole peddlers who deal in all this shit who become wealthy from the cravings of these victims may you rot in hell
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
