It was a pain in the neck, literally
a spinal surgery required
But then, the aftermath...I feel so numb on painkillers
and I confess I like the feeling
floating through the day, everything sliding by
Time a blur, as I sit cozy, high
And try as I might I don't ever want this to stop
This comfortable numbness has become my norm
My pain, not even gone, but who cares?
And the doc keeps refilling
My insurance keeps billing
No one checks up on what I am doing
or how I am feeling
So I just keep swallowing, every day, and claim hey, I still feel pain.
I need more
