Because your past days were gloomy
you swallow happy pills in the morning.
Now you chirp like a morning bird freshly hatched.
What will you have for every meal but
lime-green soda pumped with chemicals
as obscure as the taste and bread preserved
inside a lab’s private refridgerator?
When you slave over metal and wood works
and your back smarts you far too often,
simply pop some red capsules to ease the pain,
but not quite enough, so that,
in your doubts, you prescribe yourself more bottles
in public and in private.
You’re famous in the streets cause of your sporting skills,
yet they don’t know you’ve swallowed tiny muscles
with water in the locker room
enhancing your fame and your brain.
They’re natural talent stands no chance.
When the day closes and the stress of life has just begun,
how will you shut your eyes in peace?
Just take this here capsule my man!
And your eyes will shut for good.
It’s a druggie’s way in a druggie’s world!
