"Desire Is A Terrible Thing"

-

Slippin' on a snail

That I stepped on

Watch out as I fall

'Cause I tripped on it

No need for alarm

'Cause I'm not landing

I am getting high

So I am flying

But since "desire is a terrible thing"

I will soon be dying

The world, I don't care to know

I'm runnin' down a path

That I won't come back from

I will puff this final blow

Of fluffy white clouds of smoke

And I will be the one to choke

'Cause I don't care

You can't stop me

Yeah, I guess you're right

"I'm in love with being broke"

I don't remember the day, or the night

When I sold my soul to my disease

But there is no hope for me

No one can love an addict

So a bullet to my head

Is thee only way to fix this
