"dont smoke that pot
its the one I just peed in"
"thanks a lot
thats the one I keep my weed in"
"but you don't smoke it at all
because it makes you paranoid
or stiff and uncomfortable
like a windup android"
it's not heroin or a dagger in the side
or staying glued to the porceline bowl
or zeroing all day due to lack of pride
it's not murdering the soul

but it does bring me temptation to backslide
sliding down the rabbit hole
into a ugly garden full of drunks
and blackout dreams where nothing makes sense
like the daftest of punks
and even the convicts, settle conflicts
by demanding recompense

there was a murmer of hope
in the riots of sedition
that we might find a way to cope
with this terminal condition
life, and death like dual harmonies
driving us all insane
as crazy as you please
like a fist right through the pane
and then silence is the last straw
the back broken from too much grief
and here we go breaking the law
all I can say is it was a big relief

but it does bring me temptation to backslide
sliding down the rabbit hole
into a ugly garden full of drunks
and blackout dreams where nothing makes sense
like the daftest of punks
and even the convicts, settle conflicts
by demanding recompense

oh no don't worry about me, my sobriety is still intact
the play was written so long ago
my lines read, and forgotten, it was just sincerity we lacked
but I have learned to mean it anyway, because you never know
the traps we spring, bringing torment to our lives
the hidden subtleties of innuendo
like sharp teeth and jagged knives
they are the reason we must keep letting go
but time is short and reasons thin
it is when adversity bites hardest you stand firm
there is rulebook or manual of how to win
love is such an angry and cruel term.
lyrics not quite finished yet but posting anyway. This is in response to: clever word play, listening to Regina on Charlie Rose and seeing someone I know post copious amounts on Twitter about their love of pot.
