Sanity  In  A  Bottle

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Sanity  my  friend, in  no  wise  comes  
Free, it  must  be  purchased  at  a  
Pharmacy, peace  of  mind  is  a  chemical  
Compound, at  the  drug  store  for  many
Is  the  place it  is  found

Faux  love  in  a  capsule, is  swallowed
Each  day, virtual  happiness  in  a  
Bottle  must  be  sought  today, sanity
In  a  prescription, the  price  is  
Rising  every  day

A  concoction  for  rest, peace  of
Mind  Your  doctor  must  write
Some  chemicals  concocted  in
A  lab, will  bring  some
Sleep  tonight

 A  tablet  to  dry  the  tears
That  fall  from  your  eyes
The  cost  of  chemical  
Contentment, some  will
Pay  with  their  lives.
