Independence Day

Revelation of a brand new day
yesterday is out of its way
woke up in a cold sweat outside himself
wish he’d never touched the pills from the shelf

The pain he inflicted on himself
caused by the pills he found on the shelf
troubles knocking on his bedroom door
he lays in shivers craving for more

Independence day is miles away
he’ll never get his act together
these drugs will keep him in stormy weather

Meeting his dealer after four
gotta make a buck to get some more
His hands is shaking his face is white
need some more before tonight
