It's the caffeine talking
It's the chill in the air
It's the multiple chemical dependencies
That make it seem like Im not there

I can't recall your words
Curse this ADHD
Well I think I promised rescue
But now it's me who can't break free

Now I'm adrift without a
paddle to my name
I'd make mistakes
If I had a reference to frame

There's no scientific explanation
for my state
I will proceed without an answer 
at any rate

The perfect body in a failing mind
Losing grip on ties that bind
Keep the pith, discard the rind
Choose a path you'll never find
I can hear you - I'm not blind
What you forget, I can't remind
This was a random encounter of the calculated kind

Keep going forward, there's no rewind
Cruel to say but fool to be kind
The perfect body in a failed mind
She's removed and he's enshrined
Verses blank on paper lined,
Raise the glass, the stakes
the table, to the
tabula rasa of the damaged mind.
