Like sugar coated candy pops

And malted milk sugar tops

'Melts in your mouth-not in your hand'

Sweet little lies that are now banned

Caffeinated pop-it leaves you high

Just like a drug who tells a lie

After 10 minutes it brings you down

Depressed, feeling less, wearing a frown

Drugs are artificial sweetener to sweetness in life

They make you happy but stab you with a knife

"It's a hard life to live."

"So is mine and hers-but it needs to live."

Don't throw your life away with artificial happiness

I'll be your friend-that way your pain may be less
