Dancing with dopamine

In my blood, running through my veins

On my mind, wired in my brain

Must have been incoded into my DNA

Something so powerful that it must be locked away

Chain it up and tie it down, teach it discipline and grasp it tight

Assert who is boss, even if you have to scratch and claw with all of your might

Far too powerful, taking control and causing a trance

Natural chemicals in the brain do an ecstatically cheerful dance

Compulsive patterns have the potential to destroy with no repair

Addictions come with highs but they always end in despair
