Take the bottle from my hand
Please make me understand
that there is more to this sad life
and that I will never compromise

All this bad stuff I do in vain
Press the button in again and again
Push, to relieve this pain
that comes back and haunts me again and again

I roll another to feel more
Release the flame in my absents of life
Now it's time to settle the lost score
and reclaim what's mine, forevermore

Life is too valuable to keep living this way
Too much I have now to give away
If there's anyone out there who can help me out
If there is anyone who can hear me scream and shout
Please pick me up out of my ways
Help me clear my head in the great haze
Please help me find my way through this unholy, non sober maze

Drugs are never the answer. Don't come close to losing your life to find that out like I have done
