Gray Haze

Warm gray haze, smoke in my lungs
A funny little feeling, slowly it sunk
I smile a bit, for no real reason
I’m at peace, life’s at ease and
I take another puff, get real high
No care for the world, aim the sky, no more shy

As the hands, the feet, the face get numb
Slowly it sets in, I’m being so dumb
Gotta stop drugs, I have to quit
Every time I do them, I feel like shit
Time to go clean, live a little sober
Am getting a life now, the dream world is over

I tried so hard, was clean for a few days
Till on the streets, I smelled the gray haze
“Just one” I think, “I’ll slowly stop”
It gets me high and I feel on top
It makes me worse, yet I feel so good
I love this feeling though quit I should
Get numb, feel dumb, stop I would
Gotta quit, feel shit, I wish I could.

Dead to the world, was me asleep
3 in the night, woke up drowning deep
I looked at the ripples, the reflection wasn’t mine
The eyes stared down, watched me supine
It was the world watching me sink
Indifferent they seemed about my last eye blink

Dead to the world, deep in memories I slept
4 in the morning, I woke up with fire around my bed
The luminous flames the world had put blinded my eyes
And the heat of the inferno shut my mind
With no one around, the final moments came
Alone I burnt, my death had no name

5 in the morning, first of the sunbeams
My eyes flashed open, rose from lurid dream
With you by my side I took a deep breath
Kissed your forehead, towards you I leant
Your loving smile made me know
My life is more than a howling echo
It means something to those who give it meaning
That’s when I know in spite of the dreaming
Your love will always keep me floating
And put out the flames when the heart is burning
