I know why people drink
drown the part that only screams
waking dreams are nightmare's kin
voices heard inside the head
why drugs are used to numb the pain
place a haze upon the world
shift awareness to the void
not see the present always there
I know all of these
have practiced them to exist
within this realm, away from life
swimming in the passing bliss.
