Chasing Chemicals

I’m just chasing chemicals

That light up in my brain

Impulses and electricity

And it’s all insane


But they change the way you think

They change who you think you are

And when you realise the illusion

It’s already gone too far


The strumming of your heart strings

The beat that keeps you going

The feeling you derive

It’s not the same as knowing


The chemical reaction

In body and in mind

A real sustainable flow

Is much harder to find


Fate won’t cure you

Destiny can’t help

The door that opens onto joy

Is found within the self


Chasing chemicals

Catching the cold

We’re all just looking to fix ourselves

And stay within the mould

The End
