Drunken fantasies of success infect my mind

Giving false hope of a bright tomorrow

Throughout the years I have tried to find

Something in this world that can ease my sorrow

Taking drink after drink from the bottle

Uncaring of the damage this poison is doing

A demented attempt at achieving survival

Happiness - which I have been endlessly pursuing

With this bottle I feel like I can do anything

I feel as if I m limitless and ready to live

I ve lost so many friends due to my drinking

And I know many of which will never forgive

The darkness engulfs me as I fade into nothingness

The nightmare begins and shows me eternity

Then I wake up to reality and the oncoming sickness

As I stare into the empty bottle, I realize that like the bottle

I am also empty
