Sometimes
I want drugs
But I like you better sober

I wish I could help him be sober. I wanted to be his drug, but I guess that's what choices are for..
Crazy is sobriety for the enlightened; 'seriousness',

Crazy is sobriety for the enlightened; 'seriousness',
a drunken anomaly.

Where are you to share in my sobriety?

Two weeks drug free.
I did it for myself,
I did it for my sister
for you
and for her.

Cravings don't wake me up at night anymore.
I can hold a cigarette without my hands shaking
and I can look my mother in the eye.

Where are you to share in my sobriety?
Where are you to help me through it?
(Where are you?)

I've been better
and holding that AA sobriety chip

There you were, drunk
and holding that AA sobriety chip
you found in your pocket
from the halfway house.

Sobriety, brought victory

I can't stay here tonight
gotta keep runnin'
but there's nowhere to hide
keep gettin' dragged under
urges build deep inside
control is the problem

Wasted all my yesterdays
fortunes lost never regained
took a while for me to see
Sobriety, brought victory

I can't stay here tonight
temptations weaken me
when we unite
the demons take over
lose track of time
nothing else matters

Wasted all my yesterdays
fortunes lost never regained
took awhile for me to see
sobriety brought victory

Well I stayed here tonight
took on all comers
stood tall for the fight
attacked from all corners
beat back the night
standing tall on my own now

Wasted all my yesterdays
fortunes lost never regained
took awhile for me to see
sobriety brought victory

I wrote this a few years back while reflecting upon the lost years to my addiction and recovery from crack cocaine. that is the sobriety, I speak of..

'It goes on'
wrote Frost...
to understand
suffering soberly.
To breathe beauty
in an abhorrance
of decay.
To sigh bliss  
on realities
own terms.
This is to know.

Sobriety has never suited me

On cocaine nights
she chased her lines
with feverish kisses
and fucking during the come down.

On acid nights
she played Animal Collective
while she searched for galaxies
in my eyes.
We would kiss through laughter
and fuck like goddesses.

On whiskey nights
her kisses felt like punches
and we fucked like it was murder.

We rarely had sober nights.
Sobriety has never suited me
and she looked so god damn dead
when she wasn't flooding her brain
with fake emotions
and impaired orgasms.

I dont know where the future lies.
Im just as scared
As the rest of you guys.
I admit it,
I forget it;
The colour
Of sobriety's eyes.
No funeral
When an angel dies.

Why do the heroes
See themselves as the villain?
Why do the demons
Think they save the day by killin?
Where does the day go?
Why doesn't anyone know?

Sayin sorry
For all the wrong reasons.
Lives are changing
In a matter of seasons.
Sick of staring
At my bedrooms padded walls,
But ill be here
When society falls,
And sobriety calls.

Trying to function
Just aint in the cards
When your mind is a mess
And your body in shards.
Feelin lonely
Walking down the boulevard.

With you here it's easier to convince myself I don't need the high.
You're holding me together where I used to fill my cracks
breathing
and breathing
and breathing me in
and still managing to keep us both feeling alright.
