It was winter and cold
and you never thought I’ll write this story,
when you ripped your clothes
and yelled out of window.
We were naked
you wanted out
your body was damaged
and you were hallucinating on dope.
and death looked better than anything you had seen.
There’s no escape kiddo, I said
you just have to live through it
no one asked you if you wanted to join the party
And no one will show you the door to leave either.
You said you are seeing yourself in your dreams
and you are healthy
and fire has not burned your soul to ashes yet.
it’s ok kiddo,
you’ll pass through this too
but you won’t escape it.
You said (still high) that the other you is mad at you
and you are scared of him.
No one to blame, kiddo
you are not your own fault.
and the dream turned to ashes.
I woke up with a sweat
Still covered in bandages
in the dark hospital room
It was winter
and snow was falling softly,
There’s no escape, kiddo
but you’ll pass through this too.
