i dont want to think
i just want to sleep
maybe in my dreams
i can find some kind of peace

i just want to forget
what's come of my life
maybe if i gather enough bottles
i can finally hide

just make it all go away
the memories haunt me
the nothingness calls me
with cold clarity

i cant bear to think
pass me one more drink
maybe then i wont have to remember
maybe then i wont have to find
a reason why
i should stay alive

the thoughts in my head
chain me to the bed
another fix will make them go away
until another day

the past and the sorrow
may return tomorrow
but at least for tonight
i have found respite

the numbing relief
the needle's reprieve
now i dont have to feel
i dont have to believe, anything

when they come back
and they'll come running back
i'll hit up again
and send them away
i dont care about tomorrow
just let me forget today

------
of all misfortune, the worst kind of fate is to have been happy.
-boethius

the needle too far
I am reminded of a song called "pushing the needle too far" by I think it was Neil Young. That's a good thing, even if you don't like Neil Young. The simple rhyme and the weary way you present these lines paints a somber picture of addiction. The writing is very atmospheric. Good job.
