self-portrait [d.d. – cos it’s been too long]

September 19, 2013

and you might say it’s self-indulgent
you might say its self-destructive
but, you see, it’s more productive
than if i were to be healthy
than if i were to be happy

and you might say it’s self-destructive
but, you see, i’d kick the bucket
sixty times before i’d kick the habit
and as the skin rips off
i cherish the revolting thought
that even if i quit
there’s not a chance in hell i’d stop

and you might say its self-inflicted
but you see that’s contradictive
why on earth
would anyone practice self-destruction?

i’ve tried bandages and sinking
i’ve tried gloves and even thinking
i’ve tried vaseline
i’ve tried everything

makes me want to give myself a beating.
