Drinkin up

....pour it bartender
Or just give me the bottle
No I don't want to die
Of course I'll pay the bill
...pour it bartender
Let my soul lighten
Let me get some sleep
I need to forget
What should've been
....pour it bartender
Do what you're paid to do
I want it neat
three cubes of ice
and double the dose
...pour it bartender
i need to cry a bit
I need to feel a bit
Maybe just a little bit
More
...pour it bartender
The devil he wont take my soul
He's said my hell's up here
he Likes it when i squirm
When i lift the phone to call
and put it softly down
... pour it bartender
Play me something sad
I'll leave in a while
Just
...pour me one more bartender
Its the last one
I swear
....pour it bartender
Let me forget, why you're pouring

And on his way home, the memories of past mistakes come flooding back, as another of this demons trick to burn, just another trick to watch me squirm.

Keep on going. The scene is set, a story may form, as just another person's private storm.
