It seems like you have to do drugs to write nowadays.
Maybe if I do drugs, I'll write a book as popular
As The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
Or Naked Lunch.
If I did drugs, my social awkwardness
Would pretty much be gone.
No inhibitions? No problems!
I hate when people say,
Don't do drugs, or commit suicide
And always use contraception
Or you'll be a statistic.
I am a statistic no matter what
No matter what I do at all
Even just existing
Makes me a statistic.
Because that's the world we live in.
I'd cope with the world we live in!
I'd cope by altering my mind
Changing my whole life
Just to forget-
I don't know where I'm going in life
I used to want to perform
I still love performing, but so much of it
Goes against my morals, performing for
Rich perverts in suits and ties
With stacks of bills to hide behind
Hide the fact that they're plastic
Performing for those people.
I don't see as much future as I used to.
This is why teens are reckless, they can't
See a future to save brain cells for, I can't
See a future to save brain cells for!
I don't want to lose myself
The only child that cried in Life Ed
At what those drug addicts could've been
That child that said they would
Never, ever, ever do drugs.
I don't want to lose the girl
That's still in there, the person
Who hugs their parents, the person
Who still loves, who still has hope
Who has thoughts about the world, thoughts to share
The girl who wants to share this poem with you.
I am not losing myself to a substance.
That is all.
