I Know Why They Do It

I Know

I know why they do it

When they drink until

They can't anymore

I know why they do it

When they smoke until

they can barely breathe

I know why they do it

When they cut until

They lose feeling

I know why they do it

When they fake smile until

They can't

I know why they do it

When they lie to themselves until

They actually believe it

I know why they do it

They either do it to feel

Or not to feel

I know why they do it

They feel like they're losing control

Or being controlled

I know why they do it

Because I do it
