Hey sweet nicotine

Oh darling caffeine

Come closer, morphine

Save me, amphetamine

Breathing death like its oxygen

And trying not to light another

Never really works just makes it worse

And bad things always come together

Eventually you quit the smokes

But just replaced it for a cheaper thrill

It's like you want to feel like crap

But at least cheap caffeine isn't known to kill

But filling your blood with that stuff

Didn't make the bleeding stop

And you're still in so much pain

And there's numbness in shooting up

But the high didn't heal the cuts

Just made new ones on your arms

So you looked to pills

Hurt yourself to fix the harm

Maybe that helped for a while

But speed killed you in the end

Maybe that was saving you

At least, that what we pretend.
