Kyle Pavone's Death An Overdose

Too often in the music world it is sex, drugs and rock and roll
The bodies piling up as overdoses take their toll
Maybe it is the high caused by the roar of a crowd
Stomping their feet, dancing in the aisle or singing along out loud
When the curtain falls and the lights go out the high disappears
And the low of post achievement depression appears
With the urge to recreate the performance high
But with drugs more powerful and deadly than ever too easy to die
Or the addictive personality that loves to be on center stage
Another one has fallen as the opioid epidemic continues to rage
Kyle Pavone died last Saturday of a drug overdose at the age of 28
In an era when drugs are more powerful too easy to take the overdose bait
There is a saying that when in Rome do as the Romans do
Kyle Pavone of the We Came As Romans followed the musicians script and died from an opioid witches brew
The Chinese not content to just our intellectual property and jobs steal
Are waging an opioid war against us with fentanyl whose dangers are too real
While the drug cartels with our open borders are opening the heroin floodgates
Robbing us of our youth and the life expectancy increase of Americans now continuing to abate
Time not to talk about abolishing ICE but to double or triple its size
Maybe ape the Philippines and sentence drug traffickers to a speedy demise
