A fuck A film
A smoke a joke
A smash some hash
A pill a thrill
Is all it takes to distract you
To stop you from having to think
And life goes by
Outside your window
As you pour another drink
A grab A deal
A leer A feel
A Crash A Bash
A Breath A Death
Is all it takes to fill your mind
Like a tennis ball in a vacuum flask
Bouncing in your head
So you don’t have to ask.
