A little lost a little lonely
A little screaming for an end
Left us weak
Left us broken
Will there ever be an end

No, but were lost
Right now
Forgotten
Right now

And we stuck around for you
Always waiting
Always staying 
For a mother
Never there

You're always strung out
Leaving us right here
Gone on another
Forgotten bender
Lost and full of regret
Overdose overdose
Will there ever be an end

That needle meant more
Than we ever could
Brought you more joy
Than we ever could
That needle knew you more
Than we ever would
And had more love
Than we ever did

Did that needle buy
Full stock
Of that love
You never gave
Did it show
More promise
Than those kids
You never raised

Well we stuck around for you
Glad you never did
Better to be drained
Of the love
You never gave
Than to be full
And ready to be
Drained again 
Overdose overdose
Take your last straw
Show her now
That she has loved
Wrong
