 "Polysorbate 80 is a viscous, water-soluble yellow liquid...  Polysorbate 80 is used as an emulsifier in foods, particularly in ice cream...  and makes the ice cream smoother and easier to handle, as well as increasing its resistance to melting."
 
 
I'm already addicted
To coffee, to love
 
Why would you do this to me?
You, behind the desk
 
Making the calls
Or not knowing
 
What's going on
In the lab
 
You, in the lab coat
Why would you try to feed me that?
 
You should know
What's going on
 
Yet you're free
To cash in
 
And I'm free to
Slap my own hand
