Goodbye to the drugs that I used to admire
Goodbye to the pain-numbing I used to desire
Goodbye to the need to lie, hide and deny
Goodbye to the agony that always followed the high

Goodbye to the comedown that enhanced my sorrow
Goodbye to the fear of not waking tomorrow

Goodbye to bedtime stories, each tight hug and every kiss
With using you, I had to say goodbye to my very own kids

Goodbye to my family as I once used to know them
Goodbye to having feelings, yet not being able to show them

Goodbye to denying that I ever had problems
Goodbye to the inability of being able to solve them

Goodbye to ever having known drugs as a choice
Goodbye to having nothing left in which I can rejoice

I've realized that you used me as equally as I had used you
And this fact sometimes makes me cry
To mind-altered thinking and all addiction, this is goodbye
