Yeah, here you come again
I should have known you'd be around
Makes no sense to me why we're still alive
You've got weeks to live and I am on a spiral dive
When you finally die
Don't let me need you there
I know damn well you're not alone
Surrounded laughing by the death head grins
Of all my friends who've overdosed
Overdosed and died
And you know
That's the way we go
Back in your color room the shadows fall and break
We would waste away
Burning out, shooting up
I'm not gonna fall with you this time
I might not get up, I'm not strong enough
You know...
Can't you see it's killing me
I'm not gonna walk back into the pit for you
Yeah, not for you or anyone
I don't want the speed, I don't want the heroin
I'm not gonna break
I'm not gonna play your game
When you die alone in that pit of hell
Don't perpetuate the myth, don't romanticize
I'm not gonna watch you die again
I don't want to see
You know...
You don't wanna talk about it but you know
You sit and laugh at me
You'll die laughing
Yeah, you're all fucked up
Can't you see it's killing me...
I'm not gonna walk back into the pit...
For you
