Drinking You Away

numbing relief sinks into my bones

masking the pain that I've hidden

tipping back my head

amber liquid scorches my throat

drinking away the pain

only thing that I can do

to forget for just a moment

that there was ever a me and you

fighting the memories

I'm playing with fire

tonight there will be no mistakes

drinking until its okay again

never okay, drink it all away

end this miserable life

before time gets away from me

listen to the music

drown out the screams

keep nightmares at bay

with every single drink
