One single shot little in the vein, another just for the sake,
Hello delirium it’s just an ordinary day.
Can you think what you feel, I know its hard makes you scream,
But don’t you want to be someone else.

So why, is it such a treat?
The taste so sweet,
An open hand,
an empty glass.

Never it’s never the same, a token for the arcade,
It’s oh so wrong but it feels so very, very right.
Now my Silence can’t see , got to stand and be seen,
You’re the one who’s been neglected.

So why, is it such a treat
the taste so sweet?
An open hand, an empty glass,
that’s breaking, rearranging,
in Shards I see your face,
but the pieces don’t fit.

I can see your face
Crawling through my veins
One more shot just a little pop
Then I’ll fly away
