Nobody Town

I'm stuck in the city.                
This girl is too easy.                    
Another bottle is empty                    
And I'm feeling dizzy.                    
Day is a distant memory.            
                              
I tend to slip and spill                      
On pharmaceutical hills.                         
Three grams and ten pills--
I'm covered with the chills.      
I do it for the thrill.                    
                 
I don 't want to come down.                    
I can't let go of the crown.                  
If I do, I might just drown.                  
I feel like a foolish clown                  
Trapped in a nobody town.                    
                 
So, turn off the lights.                  
I want to see the skyline                    
Performing my last rites--                  
Moonshine through wine                  
And stars in the night.                  
                 
What a terrible fate--                  
Letting my eyes dilate                  
With death as a soul mate.                  
This is the world I create.                    
It is already, too late.
