so you think you want to be an addict

 
   
So you think you want to be an addict    
you want to wrap up caution and throw it to the wind    
dive right in and make yourself at home    
let's hope you can cope hell on your own    
when you're trapped between a rock and a dark place    
just wait 'till you see your face    
cold eyes set in a sunken gaze with no trace of emotive spark    
it'll always be dark when you enter a room    
'cos you'll be the bringer of the doom and the gloom    
   
So you think you want to be an addict    
where one slip can send you plummeting on a downward ride    
clutching wildly at any strand of false hope    
well there's is never hope at the end of that rope    
then finally, after all the shady deals,    
the near misses Judas kisses, false starts    
the endless line of heavy hearts    
left in a wake of calamitous notions,    
you'll agree again to take the potion that holds you    
in catatonic suspension     
   
and that, my friend, is very near the bitter end    
the end of the line for a one-time player    
a proverbial slayer bruised and broken by the poisoned spoon    
that all to soon became your life's blood    
a symbiosis 'bout as cleansing as mud    
   
so yeah if you think you want to be an addict    
sleep tight and don't forget to pack light;    
there's not much closet space in a cardboard box    
and less still in the gutter.    
   
   
I'd like to thank DP for his excellent eye and willingness to help bring this write up a notch.
