I destroy homes, tear families apart,
take your children, and that's just the start.
I'm more costly than diamonds,more costlyy than gold,
The sorrow i bring is a sight to behold.
And if you need me , I'm easily found..I live around you, .
In schools and in town.I live with the rich and the poor.
I also live down the street maybe next door.
My power is awesome;try me  you'll see, but if you do,
you may never break free.
Just try me once and i may let you go, but try me twice and i'll own your soul
When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie. You'll do what you have to get high.
The crimes you committ for my narcotic charms
will be worth the pleasure you feel in your arms.
You'll lie to your mother, you'll steal from your dad;
when you see their tears you should feel sad ,but you'll forget your morals,and  how you were raised;
i'll be you your conscience and teach you my ways
I take kids from parents,and parents from kids. 
I turn people from God, and separate true friends
I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride.
I'll be with you and right by your side.
I'll take and take , til you have nothing more to give.
And when am finished with you. you'll be lucky to live.
If you try me this is no game.
Given the chance i'll drive you insane.
I'll be your master; you'll be my slave.
I'll go with you, even to your grave
Now that you know me ; what will you do?
Try me or not its all up to you.
I'll bring you more misery than words can tell; take my hand i'll lead you to hell.
