The Red Pill Vs. The Blue

I’m walking home with a book in my hand
when a man calls out from his stoop
where he’s drinking with his girlfriend
he says, “Hey, that book is awesome!”
“Yeah?” I’m doubtful, “I want to get educated
but I’m afraid learning the truth
will make me depressed.”
He says, “The red pill tastes shitty
but you’ll be happy you’re awake
if you take it.”

I think about my homemade laboratory,
the pills i take
just to get me to sleep

I say, “I guess I have a decision to make,”
and I don’t take it lightly.
