Hell's Alcohol

Written by: Caleb Smith

Paths of reckless anger now overgrown
Hide among traces of places I've known

In dark awaiting...dreams of my enemy
Reveal only heartache...it turns out he is me

I'm looking across the expanse to insanity
Loathing all thoughts once wasted in vanity

And bitterness opens wounds only dried
As my outward life is reflected inside

Becoming a person of hate in my eyes
Wishing I wasn't and drowning in lies

I can't understand my own discontent
Unyielding darkness is where I ferment

And drink of the anger that is...hell's alcohol
