I am your addiction and I laugh as you scream,
You were warned from the start, from my friends you should wean,
But ha! you thought you had me
You thought I’d never see
As you took another snort, a puff, a drink or three.
As I watch you squirm and squeal, pleading whilst in pain,
I have no pity, I wear a smirk, as you squeal and cry in vain.
Your money’s gone, friends since fled while you shiver in the rain,
Your time is up, you know you’ve lost and I have won the game.
But come come now, let’s have some fun, I’ll give you one more chance,
This is your last time though to show your victory dance.
Now you know I know you, and I know you well
Will you take another chance, with lies to me to sell?
Let me see your strength my dear, as you battle me to live,
You should’ve given up on me, when you had the strength to give.
I see you’re on the park bench now, with papers as your cover
I am your addiction fool, from me you won’t recover!
For a laugh, prove me wrong, make me go away
It’s fun being here to watch you, but I want another play.
So what about adding, to your overflowing list?
To give me more to laugh at, while you cry and cut your wrist.
I’ll tell you now in secret, now you finally understand,
I am here to kill you, not to hold your hand!
