My baby, he don't act like himself no more
He lost that smile I use to adore
He spend his nights slapping his veins
He lost that glow he used to have in his face

Empty, burned bottle on the carpet
My baby lying beside it
Tin foil and melted sugar everywhere

He said his provider was his pharmacist friend Ben
I swear I'm gonna kill him because
I swear I'm gonna kill him because because because

The poppy took my baby away from me
The poppy took my baby away from me
The poppy took my baby away from me
The poppy took my baby away from me

My baby used to repeat the news
And now he talks about dragons on the wall
Used to love German expressionism films
Now he drinks until he falls

I was confused, didn't know what to do
So I called his momma, had her come on over
She got him off the ground, started slapping him around
And now she cried, she said she said she said

The poppy took my baby away from me
The poppy took my baby away from me
The poppy took my baby away from me
The poppy took my baby away from me

The poppy took my baby away from me
The poppy took my baby away from me
