Who Am I?

If my 'glamorous' lifestyle
Is appealing to you. . .
And you want to try me
Because you've 'nothing to lose'. . .
Then, let me give you
A bit of advice:
You are a fool. . .
And you'd better think twice.

I destroy homes.
I tear families apart.
I take your children.
And that's just the start.
I'm more valued than diamonds.
More precious than gold.
The sorrow I bring
is a sight to behold.

If you need me, remember;
I'm easily found.
I live all around you.
In school and in town.
I live with the rich.
I live with the poor.
I live just down the road.
And maybe next door.

I'm made in a lab, but
Not in one like you think.
I can be made under your kitchen sink.
Or in your child's closet
And even out in the woods.
If this scares you to death
It certainly should.

I have many names
But there's one you'll know best.
I'm sure you've heard of me.
My name's Crystal Meth.
My power is awesome.
Try me you'll see.
But if you do
You may never break free.

Just try me once
And I might let you go.
But if you try me twice
then I own your soul.

When I posses you
You'll steal and lie.
You'll do what you have to
Just to get high.
The crimes you'll commit
For my narcotic charms
Will be worth the pleasure
You'll feel in my arms.

You'll lie to your mother.
You'll steal from your dad.
When you see their tears
You must not feel sad.
Just forget your morals
And how you were raised.
I'll be your conscious.
I'll teach you my ways.

I take kids from their parents.
I take parents from kids.
I turn people from God.
I separate friends.
I'll take everything from you;
Even your good looks and your pride.
I'll be with you always.
Right here by your side.

You'll give up everything;
Your family, your home
Your money, your friends.
You'll be all alone.
I'll take and I'll take
'Til you've no more to give.
When I'm finished with you
You'll be lucky to live.

If you try me be warned:
If I'm given the chance
I'll drive you insane.
I'll ravage your body.
I'll control your mind.
I'll own you completely.
Your soul will be mine.

The nightmares I'll give you
When your lying in bed....
And the voices you'll hear
From inside your head....
The sweats, the shakes
And the visions you'll see....
I want you to know:
These are your gifts from me.

By then it's to late
And you'll know in your heart
That you are now mine
And we shall not part.
You'll regret that you tried me.
(They always do.)
Remember; you came to me.
Not I, to you.
You knew this would happen.
How many times were you told?
But you challenged my power.
You chose to be bold.
You could have said "No" and
Then walked away.
If you could live that day over
Now, what would you say?

My power is awesome
As I told you before.
I can take your mother
And turn her into a *****.
Go ahead and curse me
With every breath.
Just make your choice:
Will it be life or meth?

You will take unknown paths
On your journey through life.
Some will bring happiness.
Some will bring strife.
But, my path is one
You must not ever cross.
Although it's well trodden
Countless lives have been lost.

Now that you've met me
What will you do?
Will you try me or not?
It's all up to you.
I can show you more misery
Than words can tell
Come, take my hand.
Let me lead you to Hell.
