The Epicurean Candidate – Nick Romeo

I should be more like that fish
And just swim away from pain
But that would be a long distance
Probably close the Sea of Tranquility

My cat bit my hand the other day
I think he thought my fingers were sardines
I’m now swimming in antibiotics and Vicodin
I added zeros to that refill number on the script

If only I could get enough natural dopamine
Chemicals and electricity are welcome
As I swim upstream through rapids
In a polluted hydroelectric damn
                           With eels
                                         During a thunderstorm
