Deeper Into Addiction: Condemnation

I see the world around me fueled by negativity
Every ant crawls along, hopelessly addicted to something or another
One ant says to me 
"We're better than the addicts."

I respond.
"You and I are no different."
We're all addicted 
Though our fixes are different

So go on, my closest friends
Condemn them all!

Condemn the alcoholics!
Condemn the junkies!
Condemn the cutters!
Condemn the abuser and the victim!

I see it how it is.
None of us are different
Let me show you through unbiased eyes
Your hypocrisy. 

My closest friend, fueled by hate
Using a traumatic experience as an excuse to never advance
Couldn't make it a day without reliving it
Addicted, condemned!

Day after day, slandering junkies
Smoking and snorting and shooting up
You're no different with emotions sustaining you
Addicted, condemned!

My lover, the light of my life, hooked up to the wall
Staring at a screen and condemning the world outside
Cursing all who tear you away
Addicted, condemned!

Alcohol angers you, you call them fools
Forgetting the world outside through nectar in a bottle
You're no different with your electronic soul
Addicted, condemned!

I'm just as bad
Living life after life inside my head
Outside is cold, my worlds are so warm
Addicted, condemned!

I can admit I can't live without my addiction
I can see the beauty in suffering
So go on, you two!
Go on, everyone!

Condemn all you disagree with!
And forget you're just as bad as they are!
