"Salvation from a Pill"

Take off the lid

And swallow your salvation.

Wash it down with guilt

Put on the rocks of your self-pity.

And you're so beautiful

With mascara streaking down

And your hair in tangled vines

Hinting at another night

Spent tossing on a pillow

Owned by your favorite stranger.

You knew that Broadway needed you,

But it couldn't be convinced.

So haze your life to nothing.

And you almost are a pill.

White and small,

Numb and inanimate.

It scared us all,

Now it's normal.

We tried to revive you

But this is who you are now,

And you always were quite stubborn.

Take off the lid, Sweetheart

And swallow you life away.
