There are all kinds of addictions
Around the world today.
From smoking pot to snorting coke
To gambling your money away.
From drinking booze to sniffing glue
And all that’s in between--
Some get happy; some get sad,
And some just plain get mean.
From popping pills to stealing stuff,
To them, it’s one big fling.
You can mention jail or even death
To them it’s no big thing.
And when they reach bottom
As they all surely will
No one will be there to pick them up
For they have had their fill
Of the hurtful words and hateful things
That is all addicts do--
Then they realize what they have done,
And what it has cost them too.
