It's habitual.
That morning ritual: lit on the kitchen stool.

Bic lighter glistening.
Devil-ear listening.
Will power dismissed again.

Coughing like cinnamon.
Where'd I put the Ritalin?
Need something for this fidgeting.

Tipsy-taw-tipsy-toes, flipping like some dominoes.
Afternoon comatose.

If I get stalled, I'm gonna call it in
Because I'm all up, all up in.
I'm gonna use my sickline one time and call my friend.
Now I'm falling, falling in.
Shit.

He got what I need, but I need just a little patience.
Life's stopped until it feeds, it's my mind's only occupation.
My God, I could freeze in my tracks from pure frustration.
I've blocked all my creeds to get my mind on that vacation.

I'm so tired and sick of being sick and tired of all this weight.
I broke myself down again today:
I'm so down and beat from beating down and pounding on this pace.
I let myself down again today.

I can get on that, let me flip on those.
A tit for tit for tat, a tac for a tic-tac-toe.
I can hit the bat, let me skid the snow.
The skinny on the skinny's fat, the fat on the grizzly bone.

All the dollars spent.
Feeling kinda reticent because I'm all out of medicine.

Fighting enemies.
I'm gonna need ten of these to even out my chemistry.

If I get stalled, I'm gonna call it in
Because I'm all up, all up in.
I'm gonna use my sickline one time and call my friend.
Now I'm falling, falling in.

It's been so long, since I've watched my health
And been just alright to be by myself.
It's been so long, since I've known how it felt
To be just alright to look at myself
In the mirror.
