Hash tag Mary Jane The hackers just stole your name. They know the name of your favorite pet. The street you were born. How your parents met. Hash tag Mary Jane You threw a bash but no one came. Surrounded by friends in an empty room. Dancing in a haloed blue haze swoon. Computer overheating from overuse. No one there to judge. Hash tag Mary Jane It's happening all over again. This time they're using your credit cards. Thieves in your business in your back yard. How you gonna pay the rent. Cops cannot put a face with a name Identity theft now that's a shame Who can you rely on now. Hash tag Mary Jane The booze can't ease the pain You convince yourself that you're in control But Alice won't let you down her rabbit hole. Still late for that fictitious date. Hash Tag Mary Jane I think you might be going insane. The phone's unplugged Your cell's on mute No sense in pining for misspent youth. The pills in the drawer look mighty appealing. One man's floor is another man's ceiling. Can't seem to find the door. Hash tag Mary Jane. They held a funeral but no one came. A blank screen of death for your headstone. The final dance, you danced alone. Slowly fade to black.
