Not over yet

[ an addiction poem ]

Your eyes were rolling back and forth in their sockets

We knew that it wasn't Tylenol in your pockets

Every day it was the same,

Popping pain killers to forget you were in pain, but it still remains

Passed out, you didn't even hear me shout your name

Your life is just a game that you're not even playing,

It's lying broken on the floor until you sell it for cocaine,

Insane, nothing's changed and now the story's still the same

Chapter after chapter, it's just the same blank page

Cut off all the chains, but inside you're still a slave

It's crazy that lately the way you're behaving,

You're burning your bridges along with the babies you're making, mistakes

It's not a phase, it's engraved in your brain I'm just saying, just saying

Sweet how you're mistreating treatments with treats that you sneak in

You sneak in and out of the rehab, still tweakin'

No payment, just freakin'

It's freaking amazing that you're still alive, heart still beatin'

It's not over yet, will you lose it or keep it?

Open your eyes or lay down and stay sleeping?

You could survive if you try to believe it,

Lose all the lies that you're life's been misleading

Crazy that lately the way you're behaving,

You're burning your bridges along with the babies you're making, mistakes

It's not a phase, it's engraved in your brain, I'm just saying, just saying...
