I've been told to get a life, but it's hard when my kids are on this drug called ice. I lay awake in bed at night, thinking about the effects and lies, and how to deal with these cards I'm dealt, like a roll of the dice my life is spelt. So if you're in the same boat as me, just listen up and think of this: life is what yo make of it, so think twice before you try this sh_t, one take of this crystal drug called ice, leads you on a destructive path of a life.
