Bittersweet

When I’m bored as can be I buy sugar Low on energy I grab sugar When I get moody I eat sugar When I am lonely Spin spin sugar

When I feel salty I groan sugar When I’m unhappy I spout sugar When I am angry I spill sugar When life gets to me I cry sugar

When I can’t take it I hang on to what I know Sweet escapism

But I can’t taste it All I know is bittersweet When things go sour

When I am thirsty I drink sugar It’s my remedy Bubbly sugar For anxiety Sleepless sugar When things get trippy Numb me sugar

Slowly killing me Cursed sugar Troubling my sleep Damned sugar I know you’re unhealthy Daily sugar But you stick to me Toxic sugar

When I can’t take it I hang on to what I know Sweet escapism

But I can’t taste it All I know is bittersweet When things go sour

Looking back at my song about Cola I thought it would be interesting to write another song about addiction to sugar, but this time in a negative mood. It’s highly open to interpretation and quite grim but it was liberating and fun to write! I used this one to experiment with repetition and haikus for the chorus.
