Drinking Life Away

Everyone has a method to take the pain away Some people cut and burn and even starve Others drink so much they don't know night from day But they don't recognize the wounds they tend to carve Drinking your like away hurts others more than you think How do you think you would feel If someone you know and love was on the brink Of destruction and you hope it's not real They fear That one day you will be gone Because of the drinking that got in the way, oh dear! Who knew this contract for this painkiller would be such a con? What did I tell you? The drinking took you away like I told you it would do
