lyrics

Drugged

Oh so chemically challenged
And hormonally spiked
She’s been running on substance
For most of her life
On the rails of prescription
Channeled straight down the tracks
Chromatographically coloured
Tattooed and abstract

Ritalin Rigor Mortis
A stiff sentence indeed
Vallium induced vortex
Spiraling deep into need
There’s methadone in her madness
Heroine for the night
Gone down, that was, in sadness
Austere ragged and slight

Ecstasy for embracing
And with the speed of light
That dragon you’re chasing
Gives you fire – not insight
Keratin induced coma
So unmoving and pale
Now the climax is over
It was once off the scale

Pharmaceutical science
Beat a path through her brain
Acid ate at the synapse
Now she can’t be the same
Oh so chemically challenged
No emotion unchurned
Fire of all that experience
Left her empty and burned.
