Prescribed Paradise

Widened eyes, shaky hands
Burn of the generic brand
I'll achieve my wildest dream
The sweet release of dopamine

Hazy world, feelings blind
Lost inside my zombie mind
Fall asleep, no more pain
How'd I get here? Please explain

Wide awake or pacified
Up or down, I decide
It's ok, I'm prescribed
They give my brain what its deprived

How am I? Can't remember
Heat of the sun, chill of December
Am I happy when the flowers bloom?
Do rainy days still bring me gloom?

Dying roses once made me sad
Now my happiness comes from a lab.
