There are two types of junkies seeking a high
The 2am junkies looking for the next thrill on the white horse
The 5am junkies looking for the next rush behind the iron bar
Down on the streets or running the streets
Watching the clock or beating the clock
Being dragged down or pulling yourself up
Beaten up or squatting down
Body aches and pains
From a needle in the vein
Or a strenuous muscle strain
One deteriorates a brother
One strengthens another
One will drown
One will be found
