Empty Carbs

When you entered me, my body craved you afterwards
I didn't know why
It was like a parasite was placed inside of me
After being stroked and feeling the thrusts of your ego
Going in and out of me, groaning with pleasure not from the feeling, but from the control
The control you wish to have over my mind, body and spirit
And leaving me, hanging me out to dry
And now I crave you, like a parasite craving sugar
And having withdrawals from the empty carbs you provide because no matter what you feed me............I am always hungry
That sugar made me unhealthy in more ways than you can imagine
A spiritual transmitted disease and unfulfilling thirst
Like the sight of something delicious but detrimental to my health
You are the ingredients on the back of the label no one can pronounce
The very tiny fine print at the bottom of the contract
The lies you tell even the ones you tell yourself are the subliminal messages in the song
The messages that no one catches on to...hidden in plain sight
To keep me on a low frequency
While you keep stroking me with your ego
Striking my face with your denial and pride
Breaking the levee causing a flood down my face
Where a smile should be
You were the diet that didn't work
The food that was bad for my health
After entering my fragile womb with your insecure manhood
Placing a parasite that craved you
With every thrust of your ego
I know why body craved you
It craved the toxins you left inside of me after the pain
Now it's time to detox
I'm done with fad diets
They never work
