Verse 1

Its a small price to pay to stay away from the odd party mate. Though lets not take away, underestimate the heart it takes.

Continue doing what you’re doing man you started great. Them drinking games were fun but ended with you drinking straight.

For the next week you’d seek to wean yourself off alcohol. Couldn’t work so consequently wound up on the doll.

As everybody got themselves together left for home. You were never ever gonna leave that drink alone.

But them days are gone now man them days are part of the previous you. But that demon’s devious don’t believe him when he’s nice to you.

That vice entices you, but spy the bigger picture frame .You’re making gains, eager to repeat procedure, do the same.

Two months down the line you’re moving on producing songs, Remember what you thought of art and pain well you were wrong,
Perverted promises of pain and prickly sickening dreams, talk of tortured artists ‘is he really sick as he seems?’

Verse 2

Its a small price to pay suffice to say you got a bargain mate, Cos life today is miles away from where you started mate.

And im amazed distance come in under half a year. Acting the daft bastard had me choosing booze for blues and fear.

You snooze you lose the thing you do becomes the thing you are. Addicts chasing dragons, downing mace and chasing cars.

Keeping tallys on our bodies hands and face with scars, little scallies in the alleys writing tales and bars.

Keeping tallys on our bodies hands and face with scars, oh what a waste it is to taste the blood that’s laced with art>

Now I choose the brighter life over that sick destruction, No matter the temptation or its slick seduction

If i’d have done this way back when think now where I’d be, I lost a lot of days hazed but I don’t care I’m free

No ones struggle is the same and we can’t really measure pain but if you relate you were maybe there with me.


Every person has potential to do good, every person has potential to go wrong. And this person though it hurts em has been flirting with the devil on his shoulder, he’s been there too long
