    Been clean from dope going on 6 years. Work EMS in the same community I work an active recovery program. Have lost all but two of my old running buddies to this shit. Still lose recovery friends and at the worst of times have had to be the attending medic on scene. This song hits so incredibly deep its hard to put into words. If your stuck, regardless of how bad you think it may be it can get better. If you choose not to believe that, just remember the Real Folk Blues...Living a life in muddy water isn't such a bad thing... if it ends after the first time.

    Lying so awake, things I can't escape
    Lately, I just turn 'em into demons
    Flowing to the sun, fucking heroin
    Lately I just turn 'em into reasons and excuses
    Always down when I'm not up
    Guess it's just my rotten luck
    To fill my time with permanent blue
    But I can't see above it
    Guess I fucking love it
    But, oh, I didn't mean to
    I see everything, I see everything
    Don't you tell me now that I don't want it
    But I did everything, I did everything
    More lines on the mirror than a sonnet (woo)
    Funny how they think us naive when we're on the brink
    Innocence was fleeting like a season
    Cannot comprehend, lost so many men
    Lately, all the ghosts turned into reasons and excuses
    Always down when I'm not up
    Guess it's just my rotten luck
    To fill my time with permanent blue
    But I can't see above it
    Guess I fucking love it
    But, oh, I didn't mean to
    I see everything, I see everything
    Don't you tell me now that I don't want it
    But I did everything, I did everything
    More lines on the mirror than a sonnet (woo)
    I see everything, I see everything
    Don't you tell me now that I don't want it
    But I did everything, I did everything
    More lines on the mirror than a sonnet

      That, but also all of her friends that she's lost over the years due to opioid addiction over the years. It's about how she dealt with their losses, and when lil peep died that was the tipping point when she wrote this song.

    Her hair is just perfect, it's actually representing something, it's not just beautiful, and I really like how she represent how the heroin ate her friends life with the blue color going down and "contaminating" their life, really sad song and beautiful at the same time

    I think of my good friend Lexi who died from an overdose a few years when I hear this song. Fuck the opiod crisis. I wish they would just make these drugs legal so they can; be safely obtained, take money out of criminals pockets, and put the earnings from sales back into communities to help heal them. Why is the government so willing to sell alcohol, a drug, on every corner which is responsible for so much violence and death... but they are biased against other "drugs".
