Inebriated Paradox

inebriated_paradox.jpg

Drinkin' booze I feel like I could live a million years.

Bathing in a bath of blood got me through all the tears.

I was sober yesterday but now I am serene.

A drink or ten I can't believe the way I made them scream.

               I feel so great today.

               I was numb to all but rage yesterday.

               Don't let me come down, no, not today.

               God, don't let me come down, no more blood today.

Recollections.. Satisfaction of your demise.

At the moment, don't know why I so despised.

Evil image, sad gaze of fear within your eyes.

Liquor running through me, hate myself, cry to the skies.

 

Drunken thoughts with happiness have turned into depression.

Suicide solution, the thought haunting in my mind.

Can't believe the things I've done, madness, no discretion.

Can't take my life 'cause only Hell awaits one of my kind.

               I felt so great today.

               I was numb to all but rage yesterday.

            Don't let me come down, no, not today.

               God, don't let me come down, no more blood today.

Disposing of remains consuming my day.

Must move quickly, all my potions fade away.

Can't let this buzz fade, but must finish what I started.

Head begins to swim, disturbing thoughts of the departed.

               Don't let me come down.

               Please don't let me come down.

               No more blood, never, no more blood.

               I've almost come down, God, here comes more blood.
