New Drug

You've taken my mind and soul,
You've taken the small parts that made me whole,
You are all I think about now,
I have to get away but I don't know how.
I used to take drugs to change my mood,
Now I take more and more like its food.
I always worked hard or at least tried,
Now it seems like that part of me has died,
everything that's happened to me is my fault,
I'm the only reason my life has come to a hault,
I know now that I am surely lost,
Because I feel my life no longer has a cost.
Now it is time to lay in the grave I have dug,
Because each day I wake up craving a new drug.
