The Sanity Assassin

sinister echoes clutching at straws
letter boxes screaming
you try to pin him to the wall
you end up on the ceiling
locked in a dome
the shadows flicker by
he's the madcap pusher
delerium the drug he's dealing

he drops a capsule in your drink
and spikes your dreams with madness

he's the sniper in the hills
hiding in the holes in your head
he's the poison in your poison
the razor in your bed
hanging on a picture
eye lid needle and thread
you empty yourself once again
he's always one step ahead
was it whispers in your ear
nothing that you said ?
he's walking in your sleep now
he keeps your fat paranoia well fed

he drops a capsule..

the sanity assassin stays up all night stalking
the sanity assassin picks off victims like flys
the sanity assassin lets his fingers do the walking
the sanity assassin the crack shot between your eyes
he's got you in his sights

he drops a capsule..

Ingrate goes
