Unwittingly
You succumb to my poison:
Lovers are not trustworthy
And I'm no lovelorn
Dreamer,
I am just a heartless
Hopeless
Lover boy

Of course I can't resist the impulse
You destroy the fragments
Of my ruined nervous system
And all I do is stretch out
Convulse
And retch
Like dope-sick smack-heads
Retch all night
But I'm just high
On desperation

Pace the floor
Until time comes to an end
This way
It's safer
This way I can see
Something more important
And it might be a shame
To kill me
But you'd better do:
I'm dangerous
And unpredictable
When I am pacing

I need some release
Before the tide comes in
Because right now
I don't have the energy to drown.
