So high I die
do you let me get so high I die
I never asked to be an accidental addict
a black mark on our story it is,
it is and it hurts.
Show me, help me, help me
up to the better path
hold your rath and judgement,
rather, take me,
enfold me in care
to get me there , somewhere
not here, not here, on the street,
give me a roof, a breath, a smile, ameal,
so I wont get so high I die.
