The lights have faded from her eyes
her clothes hide the bruises from another lost fight
her tears fall but no one cares, she's not worth saving, she'll never be anything
The exchanges occur, she's become what they said she would and a lot worse
She picks up her clothes off the floor, as the unnamed John throws cash in her face and slaps her ass as she slinks ashamed & degraded out the door
She takes the baggy, he takes the cash
She hides in some public restroom
draws up the mix and shoots herself with one shot...
hoping this will fix everything, or just take away her pain
Night comes, so does another few strange Johns
Knocked up & knocked around
Drugged up & numbed down
another nightmare, wakes in a hospital
she just wishes it would all end
She saids she has no fight left, the nurse mumbles apologies, her baby's gone
hands her a script for some pills and a follow up appointment card...
she has no intention of going any how
She crushes the last few pills left from the bottle she got that morning, half of em where her breakfast washed down with some cheap flat alcohol
and now the last get added to the speedball mix
A ghost amongst packed city streets, she walks by unseen
but now there's a real reason no one sees her
She's no longer society's scum, she's just another overdose case...
