Recipe for Madness

Inherit a base of genetic tendency

Dust with ill-informed hedonism

Add a veneer of invincibility

Whip into a frenzy

Reduce to a gibbering wreck

Drop into a sea of uncertainty

Stew with a fog of insomnia

Breathe in broken dreams

Embellish with whispered insecurities

Abandon all hope

Ignore past achievements

Drizzle a broken heart over it all

Serve bitter and lonely

Unkempt in torn clothes

In an atmosphere of mistrust

With a draught of ice-cold fear
