In my head

I never thought of death until they put you in the ground

My eyes went dark like space

My mouth couldn't make a sound 

I still don't believe you

"they are dead"  you say

I can't sit here with my thoughts 

for a single day

I guess this is where the drugs come in

The shooting, the toilet water, the burn, the peace, the hell

I sit there drawing up "one more shot" and all they say is "well..."

I had it in me, I had the fight, there it is there it goes

Like a Roman candles light.
