The very essence of my being
The Caffeine in my system
The drug coursing through my veins,
I’m addicted, yes,
Time has taken control of me
It’s the only thing on my mind
It’s my ultimate craving,
Yet there just isn’t enough to fill me,
Or to satisfy my needs
So the pain is steady crashing through me.
That’s why I’m always out searching,
Constantly just yearning
For that next fix
For that next wave of satisfaction
To come and swallow me whole
To lift me up from my buckled knees
Because got dammit I’m hungry.
Starving inside for the time I no longer possess.
It’s a sickness, pulsating through my veins
Just waiting to explode, any minute
And I think I’m going to start combusting
‘Cause Withdrawal is a bitch
A symptom of being torn away from my daily fix
And I don’t think there’s enough time in the world left
Capable of fixing this.
But I guess it is my fault,
I let my time slip away.
Hopefully I can salvage just an ounce
So I can live to procrastinate another day
