The poison goes down easily
And soon you feel no pain
You stroll through life so breezily
With many years to gain

The poison takes away the fear
Allowing you to fly
And never do you shed a tear
For years that passed you by

The poison that’s within you builds
And suddenly takes aim
The cure becomes the cause of ills
What changed is now the same

And slowly, as the poison drains,
Its absence now the cure
You wander through a ravaged brain
In search of who you were.
