The Allure Of Self Destruction

Black Water Rising

We're all living to crash and burn
And the lesson is never learned
Just paying the price to roll the dice
Back in line for another turn

All you need is a new prescription
A cure for this affliction
The magic touch of a chemical crutch
To ease and old addiction

I know it's no good for me but I do it anyway
You know it's no good for you but you do it anyway

The allure of self destruction
Makes a daily introduction
To fill the hole in an empty soul
It's a powerful seduction

Save the judgments save the trial
Until you walk that endless mile
Countdowns begun beneath the setting sun
In a world of mad denial
