The length and breadth
Of this dirty town
To try and find you.
You've escaped the trappings
You've ran away with nothing but
A few cigarettes and a bottle of cheap table wine.
I sunk so low last night
I cried onto my flask of bourbon
The tears of alcohol and resonating emotion
Wetting my raw skin.
You've let the darkness swirl around you
You've tried to jump the hurdles to a better life
You fell and bumped your head
Now your mind is franticly shutting down
Bit by bit.
I'm sorry to you
That I couldn't fight for you
I've drank enough to pickle my liver
So here's to a broken life.
