Psalm 82:3

I watch as the real world contorts

Into one no longer real

I feel the pills serving their tour

The cough syrup taking their toll

I feel myself shake

I feel sickness creep its way up

From my stomach 

Through my throat 

Out my mouth

I feel myself floating 

High in these clouds

I shouldn't even know are here

But here I'll stay

Until I find my way back down again

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all
--Joni Mitchell

It hurts so bad to think this is real.
