Chasing the high ain't a life 
 
Invisible chains on my wrists and ankles 
 
I need help, but I can't get it 
 
My demons are dragging me down with them
 
Into the black abyss of addiction 
 
Once you enter the dead halls, you will never leave
 
When the demons have you by your throat, you obey their every command 
 
You steal and hurt, maybe even kill another, for your on temporary pleasure
 
You don't see an end to this 
 
But just maybe, a bullet through the head will let the demons escape.
 
Heed my warning, for I will wander the empty halls of the dark abyss, even after death
 
This is not a life
