"The Destruction of a Person" as written by and Philip Hansen/bower Anselmo....
(You see) I had some friends once before,
Whose not so much my friends anymore
I was very influential in their lives (so they say) , and when I lost my
Mind, they followed me through multiple deaths

(Because) there we were on the floor, slumped over and
Sliding downward, with syringes hanging out of our arms,
Another night, anyway we could. I said trust me
The Destruction of a Person builds character, invisible

Another group of so-called friends,
Can't seem to get off the needle now again
Should I blame myself cause I introduced them to the devil?
Or realize the life in darkness and the lord of light
Also works in mysterious ways.

    General CommentThis one's obvious. Friends following you into a nasty habbit (one Phil's been public about). The destruction of a person takes place in the addiction to the needle.
