My dwelling place is a burrow
Safe from everyone who loves and cares for me.
Stretch and have breakfast
A single apple to keep the doctor away
And then I started drinking and smoking heavily
Like I had done other days and other nights.
Feeling internal pain externally helps a lot
So I take a blade and run it through my flesh
Again and again
Until my eyes roll back
And the smell of copper fills the air.
Sleep, wake and repeat
Until I need food to eat
A single apple to keep the doctor away.
