Look at my face, battered, BRUISED
U say I mean a lot to YOU?
How can that BE?
It’s hard to SEE
Thru these black eyes of mine……
I cain’t COPE
I need some DOPE
I’m better now since I’ve given up HOPE
I just don’t KNOW
How I PROVOKE
What you do to me……
I crave a PORT
My time is SHORT
Know what I MEAN?
You’re killing ME
Please pass the DOPE
I still cain’t COPE
I’m better now just leave me to CHOKE
Cuz I have no sensation nor inclination to do the right thang
