Halfway Housed

Cocaine dreams and petroleum lines
Chasing nirvana in white snow thought train
Stimulant thrills forging victimless crimes
Synthetic euphoria invades crimson brain

Powdered walls in this marshmallow palace
Gingerbread house enshrines rehab convent
Cardboard meals and purple pills for Alice
Brand name Zoloft that they say is Godsent

Addiction gives way to new legal lust
Morphine drip stops the White Rabbit’s time piece
Thoughts into ashes, stress numbed into dust
Craving cured by another sweet release

Success story released back to the suburbs
Slinging heroin 1/8’s on white-fence curbs
