You want to think it’s fine
This time will be different
You brace for it
Build your defenses
You are ready
You have to be
It wants you to think this

Prickles down the neck
It’s coming
You hold out hope
The room tilts
You fight it
The headache hits
The tilt continues

It sucks the energy out of you
The will to fight
Blurred with the will to live
It’s got you firmly now
It always had you


Pain radiates outward
From parts, you didn’t know you had
Senses dulled
You’re tired now
Too tired to fight it
Not that you can win
Because you can’t
You never could

The room spins
Your body braces
A flood of emotion
Hold on tight
Come one come all
Welcome and step right up
To the withdrawal ride
