One More Trip

 For the thrill of the high or for reasons arcane
 A girl from the suburbs shoves a needle up her veins
 But her parents send her off to rehab
 For a second chance at sanity to grab
 To find joy instead of pain

 She had been off the stuff for quite a while
 Trying to give up a destructive lifestyle
 But she was haunted by the ghosts of the past
 And took one more trip on a heroine blast
  But this journey, would be her last.
