Deep breathes, tie the sock harder around your bicep
Tears running down my frozen face
Lips red and big, bottom lip quivering
She stabs me with this cold needle
ice in my veins. heat in my heart, venomn in my soul
Run! Run! Run!
My ankel's twist and turn as I run behind my shadow
I close my eyes, and sigh as I hide in a alley my head banging agains the brick wall
raw needle marks show on my arm, my heart has no beat.
My face has no name
Dark paradise, the paradise of darkness.
the momma to my addiction
Herion begins to kiss my face, shoving her tongue down my throat so that she can capture my heart
shaking me with fear and might She wakes me up
My eyes pop open but I don't speak yet, her eyes are wet and her face is tired
Hair as brittle as straw, and her body skin and bones
"Get up! Get up!" She yells with black tar in her lungs and disease in her spirit
"No! you got what I need I need this life, I need the medicine"
I snatch the needle from behind her and stick myself with no warning
Yelling like a caged animal, laying down on the cat pissed covered couch my back arches as high to God as I will ever be. The needle falls out of my limp hand and rolls feet away from me.
I close my eyes, tears of blood bold and devine kiss my snow white cheeks
No one is in here
who touched me? A soul hovering over me telling me everything is fine
but I want to die
there's no way I can stay, I don't want to wake up
Looking at the needle I feel the rush, I feel the touching, I feel the sense of need.
No one compares to you, please wait on the other side for me.
The soul comes back, her touch cold and hard.
"I've been raised from the dead"
I resist those words in fear, this can't be the one who left me in this world all alone.
Living on the dark side of the American dream, no golden paved streets
I finally found you
Lids heavy, innocence lost
She touches my face one last time and drips her venomn into my open mouth kissing me hard.
She is my mom, she is my dream, she is my love, she is the streets.
Dark paradise, paradise of darkness.
