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
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
