Drink To That

Intensity
Rushing through my veins
Pins poking, skin soaking
Blood dripping like rain
Clouds forming
Tears pouring
Lies keep coming out
And you’re coming undone
Just like I knew you would
Right here, as if on cue
I catch you breaking down
I hear the truth coming out
And it’s about time
And now you see
It’s not as good as you thought it’d be
And the truth won’t set you free
So who gets the next line?
It’s me

CHORUS
I made a bet one time
You’d cross the line
And you did
So guess who wins
It’s like adrenaline
Something to work at
But you never win
Yeah, I’ll drink to that
Somebody once had hope in you
But you sold yourself
On cheap dreams and colored pills
What are you doing to yourself?
It’s like adrenaline
Something to work at
But you never win
Yeah, I’ll drink to that

I’ll watch you break
Take your breath away
With the alcohol you drank


Thought maybe you would think
But it’s done
Think maybe I can’t help you
You sank down
Farther than you wanted to
And all I hear
Is the beating in my chest
All I see
Is this girl facing death
CHORUS
I’m the one who isn’t thinking
And I can’t make it any clearer
Intensity is stealing the girl
Who looks at me from a mirror
It’s like adrenaline
Something to work at
But you never win
Yeah, I’ll drink to that, drink to that
