Most people don't know how they're gonna feel from one moment to the next, but a dope fiend has a pretty good idea. They just look at the labels on the little bottles.


You're so close
and our lips meet
but it means nothing
Flesh upon flesh
means nothing
to you

Me?
I'm entirely different
Lips upon lips
Embers upon ashes
our souls intertwining

We're both warm
but I create the heat
and you receive it
absorb it
FEEL it
but you don't produce it
when I'm gone you just fly away with the wind
