Alcohol and Cigarettes
 

Alcohol and cigarettes
whatever one that does it best
whatever you want to ingest
to make yourself a jagged mess
alcohol and cigarettes

Fill the streams with barbs of poison
work them in through blood transfusion
freedom is their one illusion
filling up your welcome prison
alcohol and cigarettes

Feel the world around you dulling
throb of life always missing
this is all just down to messing
with alcohol  and cigarettes.

Living in a cloudy haze
hard to tell  the nights from days
when was your last moment clear?
without them nearby anywhere?
alcohol  and cigarettes

You're stuck in a mind dependence
they’ve crept past all your defences
no-one’s guarding at the gate
to halt the tide of your self hate
you can only medicate
with alcohol and cigarettes

alcohol  and cigarettes
you seem to think that they’re your friends
the ones to fill the empty space
but really, they’re a sad excuse
for dealing with the past abuse
that you’re never gonna face
‘cos your always off your face
on
alcohol  and cigarettes

[authors note- couldn't help thinking the Meter was similar to Mary had a little lamb in a few places!]
