Cocaine and Abel
The second time
You ask me to do the line
You offer it so graciously
So I think, what harm could it be for me?
Are you sure that this won’t last?
My god, this stuff, it sure works fast
It’s like you’re opening a vein
And bleeding out my brain, brain, brain
I love you too
But I really love your shoes
You look stunning decked in red
Wait, what was it that I said?
Are you happy to be alive?
Are you frightened someday you’ll die?
Are you sharp, are you dull
Are you that tiny sober dot
at the center of my fevered skull?
When the conversation ends
What happens when the conversations ends?
Oh, tell me when the conversation ends
Oh please, don’t let this conversation end
Do you like to read, do you like to ski?
Do you like Kurt Vonnegut, do you like me?
Do you always quote Dostoevsky?
Or only when you snort a ki, ki, ki?
I feel so sick
Please don’t tell me this is it
You gave me such a fright
Let’s dance like ghosts,
Let’s haunt ourselves tonight
