Don't tell me again the pills kill the pain.
That's what you are to me.
So is it wrong of me to say
That these painkillers are killing you?

You can be the reason someone changes,
But you cannot make them change.
You can be the reason someone changes,
Or they can choose to stay the same.

Friendship's been tainted.
Since substance took hold of you
I wish I wasn't acquainted.
Overnight you traded me for addiction.
I wasn't enough to keep you true to conviction.
Puppet of a puppet is what I am.
Strings are getting tangled
So I'm cutting them.

And just because you lead a horse to the water,
Doesn't mean you can make him drink.
And if you run and dive head first in the water
With extra weight in your arms,
You will surely sink.

Call me your life preserver.
Would you rather sink or swim?

Swallow me whole.
Let me take control.
I can kill the pain,
Rush through your veins.
I can be your overdose.
There's nothing left to say to you anymore.
It's in your hands.
The choice is yours.
