    Head turning
    Soul spinning…
    Hitting walls
    Dizzy all hazy
    High off pain..
    Feel like I just smoke a blunt..
    Dayum!!
    I am going insane
    Trying to come up for air..
    But falling faster
    Didn’t have a clue
    ‘ish happen out the blue
    I need a stiff drink and a smoke
    Listen to some down home blues
    And heal my spirit….
    Just
    Jus….
    High off pain
    Fighting demons
    Trying to deal
    As it seeps in my skin…
    It burns like fire..
    As if I was sent straight to hell
    Feel like I just smoke a blunt
    High off pain…
    Drums in my head…
    Pain in my being
    The darker just went darker
    Fighting with my soul…
    What shall I do ?
    Which way do I turn?
    Feeling cold….
    High off pain..
    When day is night
    Night is day…..
    Head all in a daze
    Spinning..as tears run…
    High off pain
    High off pain..
    Dayum!!
    I dont even drink or get high
    But high off pain
    High off pain!!!!

    Very good drop!! I have been there...it is a good title and concept because the suffering has more an effect on the body than any booze and weed can.

    Now we're going to have to turn that "high" ...into something positive. Oh it's okay to get hi...as long as it's "high on self". You know why angel? ...because if you get real intoxicated on 100-proof, straight, no chaser of ..."you", ...by the time you sober up, ...all the tears, all the clouds and all the pain will cease.
    But!! ...as long as your only 'get-high' is, "pain, suffering, clouds, heartaches" and whatever else, will only continue and feed off of pain. Do what you know you gotta do.
