Deep Thoughts: Causes and Effects

do you smoke the cigarette or are you smoked by it. do you drink the beer or are you drunk by it.

isn't the answer obvious.

i think sometimes when you say goodbye, you're not really saying that at all. what you're really saying is why. why'd you leave me with no other choice.

the ash falls. the bottle drains. and that all makes sense. cause and effect.

but time passes and you wonder if you've made the right choice. if you ever had a choice to begin with.

nicotine coats your lungs. blackens them. alcohol hardens your liver. til it can't breathe anymore. but love gives off no symptoms until after the damage has already been done.
