Zero - Poem by Ramona Thompson

I'm so high I can hear the walls
I'm so high I can hear the walls
Oh but the walls, no my walls, don't hear me


And they say that I'm a zero
Just sitting here
Smoking Mary Jane and wasting away
I hold on to my last prayer
Watching as my friends and family
All turn away
Leaving me
Oh yeah, they're leaving me
With the drugs as my only friends

I don't remember who
Cos I'm so stoned
Someone told me that L.S.D. would be good for me
So I tried it once
Yeah, I tried it once
Now I'm hooked and I don't think
No, I don't think that I'll ever be able to get away


And now that my world is changing
Ending my life as I knew it
I'm regretting
Oh yeah I'm regretting
Throwing my future away
It isn't at all how they said it was supposed to be
And that's why I fear it so


And they're watching me
Watching me
Waiting for me
Own the dealers big money
So now they're watching me
Waiting for me
Gonna blow me away
