Azrael-Always May 2014
Never will the cold taste of libation
Touch these lips
I am done drinking
I can't hide from my woes
I have to turn and face them
Naked, unaided
By chemical cocktail romance
I have waltzed my last dance

So farewell dearest friend and enemy
I no longer like what you do to me
Whiskey, I will miss thee
Wine will miss this kiss
Beer begone from here

I guess this is the end of this
Alcohol is terrible
But only because of all this hurt
I am holding inside

So as I put down the bottle
I pick up my cross
I must endure
For the lost

I miss all my loved ones and am sorry for being such a dumb drunk *** indian
I vow, somehow
To be a better man again
We were born without time
Nameless in the arms
Of a mother, a father, and God
When the world would wait for us
A thousand years in the crush
Of our eyes, fearless, and awed
So quietly, we'd fade into sleep
With nothing on our mind(s)
Hoo, hoo, hoo..
And then we longed to be loved
In the rush, we become
Some things we thought we'd never be
We were surprised by how hard
Left wary and scarred
From the nights spent feeling incomplete
And all those evenings swearing at the sky
Wishing for more time
All the promises we broke when we tried
Just wastin' all our time

Hoo, hoo..

We grow old all at once
And it comes like a punch
In the gut, in the back, in the face
When it seems someone's lied
And our parents have died
Then we hold onto each other in their place
And I feel the water risin' around us
Maybe that's okay
Yeah, I feel the world changin' all at once
I guess it'll be okay

Hoo, hoo, hoo..

And we all had one hope
There was someone lookin' down
To return our bodies to each other
And the ground
