I’ve
swallowed
thousands
of pills

Fucked the
finest pussy
in Pittsburgh

Talked for hours
to the most
prestigious
shrinks available

Expressed
my contempt
through countless
fist fights
sometimes I won
even though
it feels like
I’ll never truly win

I’ve drank
myself sober
I’ve fallen
up stairs

DMT worked
like a charm
I smoked
that shit until
I woke up alone
perspiration
my only friend

I’ve tried over
and over again
no matter what
avenue I travel
regardless of
what company
I keep

Life has
a tendency
to come out
on top

It’s a losing battle
I never seem to win
