The liquid burns inside my veins

Working its way to the brain

I lose control of thoughts and feelings

I transform to another being

The part of me that you are seeing

Is someone who gave up on living


Drink the poison gulp it down

Taking off the years I count

Every shot ticks time away

Letting go of everyday


I don't want to see you're angry

All your tension directed at me

My obsession shows in my ways

You never come on a good day

(Why won't you go away?)


As every drop slides down

I try not to let the monster out

This fighting inside of me

Is draining all my energy


Walk away, I can't help myself

Just pretend you're someone else

You'll never be in safety

Keep away from me
