    Don't tell me I've got a problem,
    don't tell me how to feel.
    I'm not self destructive,
    You better learn how to deal.
    Those morning beers go down smooth,
    don't tell anyone though, alright?
    I might have a few more at happy hour,
    but I don't drink throughout the night.
    I'm not driving too fast,
    what do you think this lane is for?
    I have to hurry or I'll be late to work,
    What are ya leaning on that horn for?
    Good mornin, how you doing, uh, well,
    deadlines were made to be broken.
    He better act like he know,
    don't treat me like a token.
    It feels so good to relax after the 9 to 5,
    These honeys are all in my face.
    So, what are you doing later baby?
    Let's roll on over to my place.
    I knew she'd let me hit it.
    When am I going to call?
    Only Jesus makes those promises,
    I'm not your savior, see ya, that's all.
    These beers are beginning to taste like water,
    so I'm gonna make it four.
    gotta get myself together in the morning,
    before I head out the door.
    Don't tell me I've got a problem,
    don't tell me how to feel.
    I'm not self destructive,
    You better learn how to deal.

    Mzblkangel, thanks for responding. No, he doesn't know where he's going because he's going down.
    Thanks Rich, thanks, just trying something a bit different.
    I appreciate the support, you 2.

    Thanks for bringing this one back triniti. I was trying out something different with this one. This poor soul had some issues with the bottle, he just couldn't let it go.
    Some addictions can be lethal. Hopefully we recognize before it's fatal. Thanks for your support Blue.

    This was a very conscious peace...

    Denial...being the dependent variable of addicition

    you brilliantly put us in the mindset of an addict...

    and it was completely...on point :toast:
