...understanding the world from a bubble of knowledge...
...insomnia and stress...
..weighed down...

lyrics

Deadlines, stress, job, clubs, friends

I’ll take this remedy to focus, to finish, to succeed
This miniscule form of compressed powder
I’ll take this tonic to be someone

Just this once I’ll slip the pallid circular capsule back in my throat
I’ll wash it down with an old cup of Joe
Just this once I’ll stay up all night
Get this weight off my shoulders minutes before time

Deadlines, stress, job, clubs, friends

I’ll take this remedy to focus, to finish, to succeed
This miniscule form of compressed powder
I’ll take this tonic to be someone

Once again I find my self without options
I take the tablet and crush it with the end of my dwindling stick of lead
The particles align in an arching line as if they were smiling at me
The striped straw from dining room hall aids me in my inhalation

Hours spent, hours with no recollection
Somehow goals are met and semesters fly by
The routine that began as a desperate act
Is now a nightly ritual, differing only by an increase in dosage

These daily happenings leave me expelling the nothingness that my stomach holds
They make me manic, active, and fruitful
They withdraw and only downers recon me sane
Sane enough to do it all again
