alcohol liquor booze,

the good times and the worst.

how badly will i lose,

trying to drowned the hurt?

.

you've been there when i've been so weak,

my fear just brushed aside.

you've been there when i could not speak,

my lips now come alive.

.

no longer the one unmentioned,

hidden within the crowd.

now able to gain attention,

you make me bright and loud.

.

and yet...

and yet...

you've changed me,

i'm rearranged,

you've maimed me

.

i no longer recognize myself,

who have i become?

i think i may need some extra help,

i've become undone.

.

i used to be so soft and gentle,

innocent and sweet.

now i've become so detrimental,

pain surrounding me.

.

i used to speak to god with patience,

knowing i'd be heard.

now i fear i'm becoming faithless,

lonely and absurd.

.

and yet…

and yet…

you've changed me,

i'm rearranged,

you've maimed me.

.

alcohol liquor booze,

i hate you with a passion.

i think we're finally through,

before my life comes crashing.

.

you've caused me so much pain,

created so much anger.

i'm ready to abstain,

and seal away the danger

.

i'll find myself once more,

the way that i still can be.

the guy i was before,

you damn near almost killed me.

.

I'm becoming sober,

starting this same night.

Yes, it's finally over,

and it feels so right.
