Until Death

Heart racing, mind can't think straight, the room spinning you into a cloud of highness.
Remember what you do effects everyone around you.
Take one hit, take two hits either way one hit can take your whole life away.
Over time your body degenerates, little by little you feel nothing but pain.
In order to ease the pain, you have to take that one hit.
That fiend takes over your body with addiction, sweats, shivers, shakes, I mean the world can never relate.
The brain can't function so you go into an psychosis state of mind.
Hallucinations, disturbing behavior it causes!
Do you realize the long term affects?
Let's talk about how things stop functioning over time.
You put one foot in front of the other but it don't feel like you moving.
That process alone can't get your body up running to enjoy a full healthy life.
That highness, done took over your whole life but leading you to a world of destruction.
Kaboom, Blast, the happy downer is done exploring through your pulsating veins.
You see the reality is what you do to your body can shorten your life line from long term living to 6 feet under living in a drop of a dime.
Love you, Until the day you die!!
