While the weakness swells, time is running Through my hand like sand And I wonder again Indifference is growing and falling apart Every second moment has another setting When everything is changing My bourbon will always be the same If I got lost somewhere I follow the stream While the girl is yelling, I’m smiling And think about the things And how they are down at the bar Where I sit and drink, play and sing I ride that train you put me in Hand in hand with regrets and sins And I will earn what I sow for sure my friend
I head out alone to a bar downtown The work is done for now, So let’s catch a drink Because too many hours, my throat runs dry I bet for nothing then another try To warm up my soul, my old bones Somehow to fade out the time The trend to decline the shadows Who enter a mind I roll a cig, take a first deep nip On Monday right, or Tuesday night? At the end I don’t mind Because too many hours, my throat runs dry I bet for nothing then another try To warm up my soul, my old bones Somehow to fade out the time The trend to decline the shadows Who enter a mind Constantly to seem ordinary
My mouth is dry, my tongue is numb, My head is nowhere Guess I’m drunk but I need some more Can’t find an end, Because I don’t want to stop right here Once I wrote that we don’t need goals Since then my world seems to explode Can’t wait till you come Can’t wait till you leave Can’t wait to hit the road and coming home Can’t wait to get drunk With friends or drink alone Nothing is enough, love still kills love And it feels wrong to hit a score Because scores crumbling down Like awards, like girls and love This knowledge don’t help a lot Till the end of all by itself My motor can’t drive without wheels That’s the main problem that is What do I do to myself
Stare back on years The way is made by tears Sent through a maze To reach what I might not need Means to move a wheel Without a chance to rest your aching feet Like a rat in a cage The bed is already made I can’t run and I can’t stay So that’s why I drink me away Try to compensate This bad aftertaste See what’s passed Everything is based on broken glass With high priority I scan my empty mind to see To prove there’s not enough to hope Not enough to lose and nothing left to love Turn your engine low If you want to feel the details below
Let us forget our loss, Let us rest our bones Instead of drink the whole night long To wash away The things we’ve said and done Please correct if me I’m wrong Down and out we carry the weight Run and hide and think we’re safe In a cage built on masquerade Let us forgive the shame, To regain ourselves Stop waiting for better days, To win or lose, to come back, To get old and maybe fat But we rather pull our sheets over our head
Alone with my broken bones I wonder what went on Some cold beers are good enough for now Behind my dirty windows Pale light, all night Two tired eyes need some sleep To find some peace Alone, the last cigarette is gone By eating themself That’s a way how good things sadly end And nothing but cold smoke fills that hole as good as it goes I wait that whole damn day To design my night time Am’I going insane by the Well known pain
A fool thinks he knows the rules, Knows the way it goes The pain and the shame of running away Two broken hearts at the roads end A last glass to toast to forget to let it happen I believe deep in my chest I know what’s left A fool thinks he can, Find enough comfort in liquor stuff To forget what’s said, to forget what’s next A last kiss, a last cigarette Don’t turn the matter of fact This conflict pounds in my head I crossed the point where I can’t go back
We drink from five to five Only we know why We can’t get enough As guilty as we are We don’t shy the moon Staying sober is not an answer Alright, let’s save our minds While get wasted day and night And say goodbye one more time And try to make things right Try to live our life And say goodbye one more time We live in a lie Try not to miss what we can’t get
Heart is beating While you`re leaving the room Your perfume left for sure So I know that I can’t ignore Share the dance floor with devils Loan a soul for a while To follow the sirene call Between ruins painted as kitchen walls I smile less sweet than bitter To a face in the bathroom mirror I’m drinking myself into an early grave Hope that I don’t blame myself Like you wish I did I will do Because of you
