lyrics

You were lonelier back then but that was only the beginning
Got a double dose of delirium derived from daily drinking
Now you're sinking
And you're so far out of reach and out of time
So if you can't find yourself, I know where you will always be

There are times I wanna give up, say fuck it and walk away
You don’t even know self-control
Just keep going down that rabbit hole and waiting for the day

When all your friends will pick you up
And bring you back to better days
Starting over is always harder
When you're still stuck in the same old ways

Do you feel alone?
Do you need somebody to talk to?
I'll pick you up when you fall

The poison might drown the pain
But still hurts when you come to
And realize the ones you're hurting
Are the same ones there for you

No such drinks for better health
Now it’s up to you to make or break a promise,
A promise to yourself

And maybe it’s a matter of time
Until you find
Just how hard it is
To work out how to stop
When you don’t know where to start

‘Cause in good time I know that you’ll decide
To do this for yourself
Stand firm, not be torn apart

Cheap spirits
Taste awful
More so at 10am so
How bad can it be
To just swallow the truth?

Know you're not alone
‘Cause I know that your friends are there for you
We'll help you find your way home

The poison might drown the pain
But still hurts when you come to
And realize the ones you're hurting
Are the same ones there for you

No such drinks for better health
Now it’s up to you to make or break a promise to yourself

And I have hope
Though you have doubts
With help, I know
You'll make it out

So put the bottle down
Before you drown
In your self-punishment

Learn to forgive yourself
To ask for help
And how to be content

Please know I never meant to get angry at you
At the time I didn’t understand what you were going through

One day you’ll beat this though it might take a few years
And that whole time, you can count on me and I’ll always be here

Until you fight your demons off, until you’re finally free
If you just can find yourself I know you'll make it out
