Crack and lonely



They left enough of the drug there in the bag for me
I almost fell headfirst

The blinking brain gave me incentives
Those salty pieces that I would have to burn
Suddenly I became a vibrating pidgeon
Nothing in the brain but the search for a place to rest


I guess you thought it important
Angels on sticks
As I curved down from the old rock wall
In pieces the carnaval melody didn´t move me.

Your narcotics are stronger
And i´ve seen boys snought glue
And i´ve seen boys huff petrol
Girls take lines!
But you put me on speed dial with crack

The pidgeon invited paranoia and other unwelcome guests
I tried to escape and got myself even closer toward the center of hell
Thank god it was but two snorts.
