Hooked

They all walked to the waters edge.
Not knowing what was going through their heads.
Did they want to live this kind of life?
Full of nothing but deceit and lies.

Leaving their freedom behind.
Just so people could discover any high they could find.
They couldn't control their addiction.
They were always conflicted.

They would do anything for a little high.
Earning money any way they could just so drugs they could buy.
Life wasn't supposed to be this way.
So high that they couldn't find the words to say.

They searched day and night.
Looking for every drug dealer in sight.
Deceiving the people they were supposed to care about the most.
Not caring that their eyes would one day be easily closed.

Putting kids lives in danger.
For the people that would come around full of anger.
They needed what they wanted.
They'd do anything until they got it.
