Hands trembling Mind disoriented Wondering through dark forests Laced with confusion Clear visions distorted Far sight a blur Darkness defining dreams of a future Weakness in sobriety Or so is the delusion Last in the race Or so the mind has deceived. Give me a drink Liquid courage they say Abolish this fear my heart has so embraced Let it teach me the art of life Let it show me the science of love Only till sobriety reenters Day break, head is pounding Stomach a knot My spirit not fazed Courage for the night I did embrace. Give me a fix The perfect escape Woken night mares materialised Less fright than of clarity Subconscious mind taunting Tune of the head so daunting Less pain than characterised by sobriety Day break, head is pounding Focus altered My spirit not fazed My perfect escape was indeed sedative Hands trembling Mind disoriented Give me back my liquid courage Take me back to my perfect escape.
