First Drag of the Day
- 15 Views
Don't make me do it, don't make me sell the things I love There's too much happening in this world Don't choose the other side right away It's been left alone for a while If I can get to the words before that first smoke Everything seems to come out differently Leaving a large hole in my hip I've never tried to quit Here I go with the first drag of the day Sometimes it makes me fall backwards on back into bed Don't stop me, don't correct me Please don't interfere with me I'm trying to write as fast as I can Yesterday wasn't so bad I thought it a little worse than it was I don't know why I tried to sabotage my day I wanted everything my own way I wanted it all my own way, so don't apologize I learn to devise these ways of explaining away Happenstance, you don't let me take a stand And it sits inside on the great white picket fence deep inside Someday that fence is going to fall in your yard And I hope you didn't plant anything too precious too close to the boundary It's starting to sound like it's time to sign off But for once, I feel like something might have happened Maybe I can't show this to you Maybe I can't show you everything Some things have to be precious and pure Some things have to stay inside of me Or else I've given everything away I wanted it all this way I learn to devise these ways of explaining away So don't blame me, I won't blame you It's just the first drag of the day
