Pick your poison
It's all the same
An addiction is an addiction
They are all the same

A smoke to calm the nerves
A shot to numb the pain
A hit to mask reality
A drink to hide the shame

Sweets to make you feel safe
Sweat because your ashamed
Energy to feel alive
Vomit to look the same

A pill to hide away
A cut to shed the stains
Sex to feel the love
Purge to stop the gain

Smokes, drinks, drugs, and pain
Pick your poison,
We're all to blame.

Was thinking about my life and then how the teenage years go and I sat down and wrote this out... Kind of explains everything
