"One day I'm gonna run away and never come back and when I come back I'm gonna be the knife master" - Jimmy The Rev Sullivan. Not much of a deep meaning but it makes me laugh.

I know the things you do,
when I'm not around.
If you continue to waste away,
you'll soon be underground.

You say that you can't stop,
it's a hard habit to break.
I don't know how much more,
I can really take.

As the years have passed,
I've watched your smile fade.
You used to be so colorful,
now your just one shade.

You say you'll be fine,
you act like superman.
I know you can't take the abuse,
no human can.

Please! I'm begging you,
get some help, theres no shame.
You cannot continue,
to play this dangerous game.

I wanted to write a song about how addiction hurts and affects loved ones.
