High Anxiety

Under the spell of the trailing smoke
Following wherever I could Bogart some tokes
It’s alright for drug addicts but I’m just a man
Hitting it for anxiety, “Ere” was the grand plan

Cushed*

 

Caution for the wind song is strong
Whirls and the curls meats your head on
Your ears are soothed and body pushed
Not to take care your brain is cushed

Strong wind bubbles blue hazy smoke
The lyrics sang jumbled a bad joke
Laughter shoved you in the bean bag
You realized then you zigged then zagged
