The Eyes Of This Addict

Look through the eyes of this addict
on any given day
you’ll see pain and strife 
in a senseless life 
in a world that’s cold and gray.

Look through the eyes of this addict 
driven to be insane 
from clouds on high
falling down from the sky 
tears soaking him through like the rain.

Look through the eyes of this addict 
his soul an empty well
a lifetime of emotional pain 
surely born in hell!

Look through the eyes of this addict 
dancing on the point of a knife
married to this addiction
his lover, mistress and wife .

If you look through the eyes of this addict 
I’m sure you will plainly see
though the stories are different 
the feelings are the same 
and this addict could easily be me!
