Toxic Show

burn my insides
and I
crave, give me more
crave, quench my thirst,
crave, I'm addicted
for that fiery sensation

life is so much better
through eyes and mind
below the influence

watch me make
a fool of myself
another mistake
define humiliation

watch my performance
I am thrilled right now
I won't remember this tomorrow
but what i worry about
is that you,
my audience,
my witnesses,
my "friends"
most likely will remember
every single detail

I like this one. it sounds like you're addicted to giving shows. I love the "watch me make a fool of myself" part. you have to love it when they dont know whats going on but they love your stuff anyway.-you just have to.
