Addict

Here I sit crackpipe in my hand. 
Wondering how I became this man
.
I grew up head filled with dreams, 
Of being a movie star, or on a 
Sports team.

I wanna go back and talk to that kid. 
And tell him not to do the things that 
I did.

To follow his heart no matter where 
it would lead, To live life slowly, 
there's no need to speed.

Live life like each day is his last, 
Strive for a future and remember his 
past.

Don't put off tomorrow what you can 
do today. Follow those dreams no 
matter what people say.

Treat people with fairness and try to 
be kind. Develop your body, expand 
your mind. 

Travel and see the world, Fall in love 
with a beautiful girl.

But its too late, that kids just an 
empty shell, Living his life in his self 
made hell.

No more family, kids gone with ex 
wife. Crackpipe in hand looking back 
at my life.

All alone in my room, laying on my 
bed, Noone would even notice me 
dead.

Drowning away my pain and my 
sorrow. Putting off today cause ill 
clean up tomorrow.

So now I stand finger raised at the 
sky. I'm pissed at you God you 
wanna know why.

You've taken away everything from 
me. The man I became isn't the 
man I could be.

And I'm pretty sure I won't be 
seeing you. Cause I know I'd regret 
the things I would do.

So say Hi god to my friends and 
family. And make sure u take care of 
them for me.

I think I know what I have to do. I 
am done with you god no more 
praying to you.

My god now is this pipe in my hand. 
Its taken my soul left this hollow 
man.
