Do you know what it's like to desire
A substance that's as deadly as fire

Your mind inflicted with constant demand
Relentless memory giving command

Destruction and damage a price to pay
Moments of glamour through out the long day

Choose your course, stay strong til the bitter end
Vicious cycle of conflict, you ascend
