A song I wrote with a friend recently
What are you going to do
when the alcohol has no bite
when what, where, and who
start to keep you up at night
the liquor makes its way through your veins
and it doesn't even take away your pain?
What are you going to do?

He's lost all hope
She's torn out her hair
They both scream loud
There's a burning in the air
There was an elephant in the room
But I swear before you got here babe, it really wasn't there
So take your keys
But give me mine back
Before we both...
Have heart attacks

The darkest shadows are the ones that follow closest
So you hide within the dark
why let it follow like a sheep when you can let if swallow you whole?
You never went big you always went home
You never tried to put yourself all in now your on your own

That's why you taste
That's why you sting
That's why you fear
Your blood
Your poison
Your Everclear

Every hit you take is a cry for help
a lazy way to clean up the mess you've made
you're running out of things to ease the pain
you know it'll never be the same
and no one will ever love you like me
so who do you wanna be?

You're out of context in a sense of your own
You question your lover
The questions for yourself you've never shown
Again how does it feel to be so alone
Distracted by others
Who the fuck are you
Do you even really know?

He's lost all hope
She's torn out her hair
They both scream loud
There's a burning in the air
There was an elephant in the room
But I swear before you got here babe, it really wasn't there
So take your keys
But give me mine back
Before we both...
Have heart attacks

How long, how long
how long will you let this go on?
before you realize that you're a fool
and the only thing that can take away your pain
is the same thing that you traded for that bag of cocaine...
yeah, you're the one who cant find himself
staring at the bottom of a bottle

That's why you taste
That's why you sting
That's why you fear
Your blood
Your poison
Your Everclear

He's lost all hope
She's torn out her hair
They both scream loud
There's a burning in the air
There was an elephant in the room
But I swear before you got here babe, it really wasn't there
So take your keys
But give me mine back
Before we both...
Have heart attacks

So take another hit
tell yourself
you'll get over it
cause you know you never will
put your lips around the tip
you'll never get your fill
because you sunk the ship
and you'll always be thirsty baby
thirsty for more
to fill that hole,
because you cant let go
yeah you'll never let go...

And you'll go
And you'll go
And you'll go
So let go if you feel cold like snow
You heart is beating
But it's beating low
You'll never be the same again
And I am just a man
And you were just a girl with a razor in your hand
You say it's all the liquor babe but let's face it, it's me
Stop living in your daydream turn off the fucking tv
You got your fix
You took your hit now turn the fuck around
We're just a bunch of animals
Until we hit the ground
We're just not meant to be right now
That's the truth you've finally found

The voices in your head
let you know you're not alone
but you'll always regret
the day you let me go
how much I've bled
you will never know
is anything meant to be
baby who are we?

He's lost all hope
She's torn out her hair
They both scream loud
There's a burning in the air
There was an elephant in the room
But I swear before you got here babe, it really wasn't there
So take your keys
But give me mine back
Before we both...
Have heart attacks

What are you going to do
when the alcohol has no bite
when what, where, and who
start to keep you up at night
the liquor makes its way through your veins
and it doesn't even take away your pain?
what are you gonna do?
when its all on you?
What are you going to do?
