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.
