Addicted to the Climb (Debauchery Lane)

snowy road lined with trees
Brian Hogan

I’m way up ahead, on Debauchery Lane

With snow lined surroundings that make me insane

Crush the fine powder under my feet

as I march ever higher, I can’t be beat

I come to a peak on the rich rolling hills

Dance in the grass, then move on to pills

I’m reaching the crest

I cannot go any higher

I feel sublime triumph

Like I’m about to retire, or catch fire

Then, for no reason I start sliding down

The avalanche knocks me around and around

I land at the bottom with the force of a truck

I cringe at the thought that I’m forever stuck
