Wayward ways, hazy days,
Lying awake when I ought to be asleep,
Tears in joy, and in pain,
Pour down like an endless rain

Punctuality was never a strong point,
Still the smiles were always on schedule,
Always fake, seldom true,
Thrown at random they scattered around

Just an escape,
A simple path,
Away from this, far far away,
I need to flee

Shackles bound,
A chained mind,
Wanting to flee this vanity,
Yet kept at bay so doggedly

I can't run, not with this body,
That weighs a ton,
But there's something I can do,
I would do

One whiff of the silver cloud,
An eternity in solitary joy,
A corner of the world to my own,
Nestled in and tucked down

Anesthetic, adrenaline, euphoria,
I get by pain, wrestle grief down,
There are are women I love to hate, and women I hate to love,
But then theres Mary Jane, you are a different one

Picked me up, pulled me down,
Segmented sorrows, those days are past now,
You my darling,
Have set me free
