Payment

I believed in life once

gave it all up and my luck held as I ran down the rabbit hole

took the blue pill instead of the red.

I even found what I was looking for and can still see it now

from time to time

but I feel different,

it wasn’t exactly what I thought it was going to be

and as you spiral down and down

you see that although you had to go

and now you are close to the bottom

you see the fall was too great

the cost too much

but one way or another we all pay

pay for who we are.
