She looks at the world through her bubblegum lens
Says made-up words to you.
And roams the streets in her flowery dress
Then through her eyes, the bubblegum sky loses its blue.
The sun shines bright, blinds her unsure sight
Can't tell false men from true.
Happy as ever, flying her kite
Till a hawk tears it, she loses hue.
She runs back home, crying big fat tears
She hits her bed, and weeps some more.
She does get scared, first taste of fear
She felt a chill, numb to her core.
Valium Pills and Popsicle Sticks
Were her best friends, for evermore.
Daddy told her, "don't be in a fix
I have meds for you in the store."
Day after day, and week after week
Month after month, year after year.
She took those meds, and now she reeks
You're fucked my dear, I hope you know.
