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
