Bad Drug

you're so sick / you’re infecting the weak / you’re making excuses for all your mistakes / you waste of skin / you remind us all / no matter how high we become / we crash to the ground / you've had the devil inside you / you've been carrying scars for most of your life / until finally you found a way to push it down / bury it so you could function / that is until it's no longer effective / skewing your perspective / a new way to fly / your narcissist narcotic killing the signals / that something is wrong / you’re going home / endorphins / serotonin / dopamine / unnatural balance / chemistry irrevocably altered / to feed it into your blood / making you feel an ignorant sense of safety / your skin aches for more / your mind is not there / now in a haze of nothingness / a black hole / you're getting sucked in to the innocent facade of your bad drug / scratching the itch doesn't make it go away / your insignificant problems / are pushing you into the ground till you drown / take one / let it go / no love / no remorse / driving a wedge between you and your friends / spirit bent to the will of the chemical / drink up / let it go / your blood / cannibal / no one to save you from sins of your past / elusively pleasure deprives your heart / take it / let it go / hatred / no remorse / neuron overload / cell death / addiction / plastic / melted down / dark path / walked alone / mutate chromosomes / sucked in / overdose

[Solo: Colin Butler]
[Solo: Nick Padovani]

you've withered away frail ghost for your bad drug / you have not been listening / unable to change / stuck in your ways / allergic to hope / rotting creed / there is no solid ground / spouting lies / you're dead inside / the sickness has left you with nothing to hide / you’re spiraling down / no way out / you're nothing without your bad drug

[Solo: Colin Butler]

no faith in yourself and none to shepherd you to the end / realization of your imminent demise sinks in / your body dying the poison is from within / life leaves you behind / your only friend / to be with your bad drug

[Solo: Colin Butler]
