Casino (HERE)

At the casino…
Everyone smoking
And drinking thru
Their livers…
Like they’re all
Trying to find
Out how to die
Even quicker…
Like they all
Have to kill
Themselves a
Little, just to
Keep from pulling
The trigger…
At the casino
Everyone smokes
And they drink,
And they gamble
Thru the night;
They do all that
They can do, just
To stay alive.
