Deeper Into Addiction: Consequence

Drink ever deeper
From my stinging liquid lifeblood
Vision tunneled
Balance shattered

I awoke in a place I never knew existed
Sky black, stars bright
Body numb
No control

Everything I left behind
My life, my dreams
In a glass
Tossed back

Laws mean nothing 
When I'm too gone to see
I am man
I'm alive

My future means nothing
When I can so clearly see
It isn't there
It never was

I gave up my life
To sustain my happiness

I gave up on life
When the road took a turn

Little is left
Of the man that I used to be
Innocent hopes
All fade away

Nothing can grow
In poison-soaked soil

Nothing can grow
When the farmer won't toil
