Five Vicodin Chased With A Shot Of Clarity


After all this time of asking questions

Of trying to find something to quiet this soul

I'm left alone within my mind into this self-made hell I delve

It's not as hot as you think

More so dark and cold with no room to breathe

I'm sorry, I don't think it's going to be okay this time

My heart has skipped its final beat

It's beating me down onto the floor

That must mean that the pills are working

The glass isn't half empty this time

I smashed it to the ground a long long time ago

It shattered when it fell and I broke to pieces

Each shard's another reason, another way to give up

This skin is so tight that the air can't reach my brain

There is nothing telling my heart to beat any faster

To let me scream for help, I will never give up

I will never take the easy way out

This is life

This is struggle

This is love

This is war
