Shooting Star

Too wild to be for ever so the days were precious few

Unwise decisions taken always knowing what we do

So high you had me flying like two eagles we would soar

In everything success and then we wanted nothing more

The day it dawned when suddenly I wanted to be down

My Peter Pan confused because my feet were on the ground

The neverland forever’s not the place I want to be

So if you want to fly you must continue without me

Reality sobriety my heady days are done

The rush of the roulette but now I’m putting down the gun

I love you hate you want you hope you’re never coming back

For everything you take is just to hide the things you lack

So chase the rainbow dance with stars and reach for greater highs

And down here on the Earth I see you flying through the skies

Time

The bells were ringing sound of my alarm

But caught by breeze my caution whisked away

And like bracelet stripped of subtle charm

The gold was tarnished by the end of day

The clock it struck me right between the eyes

A thought was lost in time I’ll come to see

And in my sight it plainly was disguise

I’m anyone as long as I’m not me

Esteem I limbo under at the bar

Each glass more rosy hued as down I fall

From there to here is not so very far

My back desires the prison of the wall

They’re calling time last order is my rite

Beloved I will sink into the night

Touched

My world it turned to fog

I didn’t want the detail crowding in

And so I blanked it out

Specifics aren’t where I wish to begin

I’m crawling back to life

I cannot stay in limbo ever more

But not yet standing up

I wonder if I’ll ever leave the floor

And you who put me here

So proud of all that you have done for me

But I forgive you now

Your hatred cannot stop me if I’m free

You think that I am weak

Refuse to play your petty little game

But you can’t touch me now

For I am here and I have found my name

Dead or Alive

What did you find in the bottom of the bottle
How many demons to release
Poured you a drink and then poured for you another
One way to get a little peace
What did you want when you told me you were leaving
I watched you falling out the door
Did you believe I would lose myself in grieving
I felt like I'd been through the war
You're so unkind on the days that you are drinking
How many days are in a week
Alcohol won but the friend got lost I'm thinking
Help wasn't something you would seek
Everyone knows never trust an alcoholic
They only want another glass
Hatred you'd spew after being melancholic
Thank you I will not kiss your arse
Nothing is found in the bottom of the bottle
Saving the pain on which your heartache seems thrive
Drinking is one way to numb the pain of hurting
Dead drunk but feel you're still alive

In A Fix

I was once a man like you devoid of woe and care
Life has worn me down and now I almost never where
Lights are shining, life is lived, I let it pass me by
Hiding in the dark my only want is getting high
Junkies are created from mistakes we all might make
Judge me if you like but I have nothing much at stake
Loss is just a luxury I’ve nothing left to give
Scum upon the earth and I do not deserve to live
I was once somebody’s son a mother’s pride and joy
Half a man but once I was a sweet and happy boy
Now I am the son and heir of half a gram of junk
Floated in nirvana when I woke I had been sunk
Steal the shirt from off your back and sell the family jewels
When you’ve hit the bottom you don’t live by little rules
Don’t you understand that I can play so many tricks
Why because I sell my soul to get another fix
