Get me the fuck outta this

By Empathy

Disgusted by the way life disabled me
I found refuge in amphetamines
The war inside my head won't cease
And their screams rob me of sleep
The past will kill me by itself
Cuz I'm too proud to ask for help
Arms flail for me to fall in
Rusted tracks beg me to begin
I'd rather sit up and shake all night
Than live another day sober in this wasteland of a life

I am in now way encouraging or condoning the use of any kind of drug. Like I said it's a fucking wasteland.. with or without it!
