a lure
fit for my nostrils
leading me down a dark cave
in search of fulfillment
to this deep urge
that never dies
it only sleeps

take my mind away
and it goes dormant
but it never goes away
it is only sleeping

anything can be the wake-up call
and I will be running through the cave
chasing the high until it wrecks me
yet I chase it day in and day out
it burns me yet I want it all the time
the desire is too strong to resist

when will it ever stop?
