[VERSE 1] Cold sweat hot flashes bones ache / go weeks no sleep not no way / need a blast from the past for old dope sake / old habits die hard like they won't break / them old shakes won't go away keep twitching / ship sunk chill bumps and my feet kicking / mental monster starving to feed addiction / blood pressure through the roof where the fever's living / I can feel it this time I'm going all the way / but if I fall my esé is just a call away / and it's a slippery slope when addicted to dope / my lifeline's got a noose at the end of my rope / shoot 'em up bang bang how the gun sound / perfect aim so the pain get gunned down / running circles getting nowhere somehow / and that's one helluva track to try to run around

[HOOK] Ain't no pain like the pain of a comedown / no pain like the pain of a comedown / but I always end up back here somehow now / where you gonna be we'll see when you come down / where you gonna be when you come down / wide awake in bed by sundown come down somehow now

[VERSE 2] Back on the wagon dragging rather lethargic / tracing shadows on the wall in patterns of darkness / the morning after torn and tattered shattered heartless / way past dope sick not your average nauseous / one way in one way out / and this the real way not a fake route / too sick to pick up a phone and order takeout / looking at my last twenty bucks and want a taste now / yeah I'm sick and some of you can probably empathize / paint a picture of a pain you can visualize / quitters lose and in the end the winner dies / erase the digits but I keep the number memorized / shoot 'em up bang bang how the gun sound / one shot one kill fire one round / can't please 'em all I'ma let some down / on the wrong side of the tracks after sundown [HOOK]

[VERSE 3] So put a fist in the air if you needing a change / to break the chains of the clinics and needle exchange / instead of finding new reasons and people to blame / I've felt too much love to believe in the pain / hard to pick a part my brain and reprogram it / while these folks tell me what I already know dammit / the island of addiction leaves most stranded / skid row ghost town turned ghost planet / coming down hard with the slow landing / clipped wings getting tired flying broke handed / cold turkey in the morning like the dope vanished / tainted love hate thang so romantic / shoot 'em up bang bang how the gun sound / last time was a sign when the gun jammed / I'm surprised I'm alive and somehow / still got that monkey on my back when I come around [HOOK]
