At The Bottom Of The Bottle

bytheoncomingstorm©

Beer. Whisky. Wine.
I don't care what it is
Just hand me a bottle
And let me drown
Let me drown, drown, drown

Raise your glass to alcohol
It's the answer to all of my problems
It drowns my sadness
It drowns my pain
Let me drown, drown, drown

Reality is such a downer
Please pass me the liquor
Let me drink my cares away
Keep a drink in my hand
Let me drown, drown, drown

Just give me a shot
Or two. Or three. Or more.
My demons are rearing their heads again
I need to chase them away
Let me drown, drown, drown

Don't even bother with a glass
Just me the bottle
I've found I can't drown my demons
Sadly, they know how to swim
So let it just be me who drowns, drowns, drowns
