A dark little song about those who lose themselves in drugs. Cheers!

 

 

Choose your drugs with care, my child

And pray you never need the gods to help you out

Because by then it’s too late - there’s no way out.

Ask your Mother - she knows best - she’ll lead you to a place of safety, hold you in her whisper stories, love you even if there’s little left to love …

 

Mommy’s boy is beautiful but lost, he left his breath behind when he left home, forgot to leave a trail of sweets so he could find his way back in the darkness he was cursed: a mundane spell was cast and turned him into yet another morsel for  the old witches’ feast …

 

And though the witches fought among themselves, the boy could only watch as time ran out, he slipped away and found so many more with nowhere else to run and so he lost himself amongst the others and he couldn’t tell where they ended and he began, so he slept his little life away … 

 

When there was nothing left he heard a whisper story breathe somewhere and something in the nothing that was nowhere slipped into the memory of his Mother’s arms, he heard her distant prayer, heard her say: 

 

Choose your drugs with care, my child, and pray you never, ever need the gods … 

Because by then it’s too late - there’s no way out.

 

Ask your Mother - she knows best - she’ll lead you to a place of safety, hold you in her whisper stories, love you even if there’s little left to love …

  1. Well now, an anti-drug song, and perhaps some English tradition as well. This piece is well made and a fine listen.
    I would make one suggestion. The vocal runs out air on the longer lines. It would be simple to punch that in, and a bug would no longer be a feature.
