    I drink...

    I drink
    to purge
    my soul

    I drink whenever my emotions rise to it's peak...
    So I guess I drink everyday...
    Every new probelm
    opens a brand new bottle

    Belvedere...
    Coors Light....
    Miller Draft......

    It's funny how I look for spiritual comfort and instead
    I get Southern Comfort

    whiskey...
    gin...
    rum....
    mixers...

    I am tired of feeling the pain that love
    continuously causes me
    But I don't look to slit my wrists...
    I look into a clear flask of liqueur
    to save my [email protected] soul

    I used to flinch at the liquid burning my throat....
    Now I enjoy it
    I relish everytime that I unscrew a top
    or flip off a bottle
    or take it to the head....

    I look forward to feeling so out of it that
    I can't feel the pain tugging at my heart...
    Tears threatening to flow from my eyes

    so instead of crying I drink and gorge into the night....

    It is all I know
