    I have
    whisky & gin in my cup and
    Tweet's song plays in the background
    and the refrain echoes through my head,

    "...Got a five in my pocket
    Wanna buy me some gin
    A drop of gas in my tank let me think it over again, mmm
    Cause I'd rather be drunk and drive away from here
    Than to be sober, so sober yea…”


    I stand all by myself,
    nursing a glass of dark whisky in my hand.
    my worries are in tow.
    and a bit of sorrow and pain
    accompany rain
    as it fall's while I drown my sorrows
    in my cup of whisky & gin.
    i’m not supposed to be this way;
    not supposed to be having this day.
    nothing to do and no one
    to call on,
    i’m starting to think I’ve lost them all.
    so hear I am,
    the whisky & gin, doing more harm than good.
    the thoughts in my mind, ain’t
    nothing but a lot of shoulda-coulda-would’s.
    I’m falling quickly in this abyss of
    drunkenness; deeper into my glass of
    potent whiskey & gin
    hearing a buzzing that goes beyond the sum.
    I light the last of my cigarette’s,
    thinking I’ll probably smoke half and
    finish off this whiskey and gin
    so I fall into a dreamless stupor, rather than
    drown in my tears.
    it ain’t supposed to be this way.
    I think…
    I take a drink, and laugh at my predicament and feel my
    heart sink…
    the cigarette smoke wraps around my head, I’m in a daze
    I drink the last of my whiskey & gin…
    I really shouldn’t have taken this ride again;
    but I couldn’t drown in my tears, so why not numb them
    with a cup of whiskey & gin.

    Drowning your sorrows, and feeling like your drowning yourself, feeling this piece.
