12:09

I had a dream that it all went fine
Sound body, sound mind
All of the drugs left not a mark
Fine features, strong heart

When I came to this place
My face was pale white But all of the color
Returned overnight

I lost so much weight
And don't I look great?
My body sinks down
As my heart floats away.
