Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Intervention is energetic,
And so are you.

I pin you to the floor
You kick me in the face
Your mother grabs your hands
Your father grabs the mace

The jacket is white
Your eyes are wide
The men wrap your arms
Nowhere to hide.

The needle goes deep
Not your preferable high
But it gets you in the truck
It keeps you alive.

Roses and red,
Violets are blue
We'll visit you on Sundays
Until I find someone new.
