What about music thats directed towards Alcoholism?

Check out these lyrics, from the best band ever:

1. The Glass Prison

[I. REFLECTION]

Cunning, Baffling, Powerful
Been beaten to a pulp
Vigorous, Irresistable
Sick and tired and laid low
Dominating, Invincible
Black-out, loss of control
Overwhelming, Unquenchable
I'm powerless, have to let go

I can't escape it
It leaves me frail and worn
Can no longer take it
Senses tattered and torn

Hopeless surrender
Obsession's got me beat
Losing the will to live
Admitting complete defeat

Fatal Descent
Spinning around
I've gone too far
To turn back round

Desperate attempt
Stop the progression
At any length
Lift this obsession

Crawling to my glass prison
A place where no one knows
My secret lonely world begins

So much safer here
A place where I can go
To forget about my daily sins

Life here in my glass prison
A place I once called home
Fall in nocturnal bliss again

Chasing a long lost friend
I no longer can control
Just waiting for this hopelessness to end.

[music by Myung, Petrucci, Portnoy, Rudess]
[lyrics by Mike Portnoy]


This is just one song on a 6 song disc thats devoted to the illness.

Lemme know if you want more........

I'd love to see some music lyrics and poems that were focused on recovery rather than the disease. Kind of like good news and bad news. There is always a ton of bad news... with little focus on good news. So, I have a tendency to avoid the news unless I know it's good news.

We have a solution -- upon which we can all agree.

We found a way out -- that set us truly free.

Here's one then, sort of both. Relevant to me as my father died of this disease.

It's by John Hiatt

Well my daddy he stood at the foot of the stairs
He was calling to me at the time
And I knew even then, I could die for the thoughts
That I kept in the back of my mind

But I dared not to speak
How I felt for my dad
Cause there were no words to define
The ball of confusion, of feelings and stuff
That I kept in the back of my mind

So I took to the highway
And I kept to myself
Just a lookin and hopin to find
Some solutions, some answers, someway to exist
With this stuff in the back of my mind

So I took me a job
And I took me a wife
And I took to a bottle of wine
And it did not take long, til all I had left
Was this junk in the back of my mind

Well the end of the tunnel
It never came up
til I came to the end of the line
And I saw that the light Id been hoping to see
Was just a spark in the back of my mind

And the cold wind that blew
Through the hole in my heart
Made a fire for the very first time
From some branches of trust
And a kindling of faith
And that spark in the back of my mind

Drivin like rain, or a runaway train
Flyin blind, shot from the dark in the back of my mind

Went to visit my son in a group home that he's in. My son writes poetry & he was on the computer, so I showed him the poem Victor wrote & the lyrics from the songs kidlizard & Geoffs sent.

My son read the poems & said "I feel like that." I said , "You never have to feel like that again. There IS a program of recovery."

He looked at me like this was some amazing, revolutionary idea, even though he's been in many rehabs. It was like he was hearing it for the 1st time. He actually smiled. We have an economical God - he uses everything for good.

My favorite lyrics are from the TV show "The greatest American Hero":

Believe it or not I'm walking on air
Never thought I could feel so free
Flying along on a wing & a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me!

Look at what's happened to me
I can't believe it myself
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world
Should have been somebody else!

THAT, to me, says recovery. :D :D :D

Heres another about Step 8 called REPENTANCE:


Hello, mirror, so glad to see you my friend
It's been a while...

Staring at the empty page before me
All the years of wreckage running through my head
Patterns of my life I thought adorned me
Revealing hurtful shame and deep lament

Overwhelming sorrow now absorbs me
As the pen begins to trace my darkest past
Signs throughout my life
that should have warned me
Of all the wrongs I've done for which I must repent

I once thought it better to regret
Things that I have done than haven't
Sometimes you've got to be wrong
And learn the hard way
And sometimes you've got to be strong
When you think it's too late

Staring at the finished page before me
All the damage now so clear and evident
Thinking about the dreaded task in store for me
A pit of fear at the thought of my amends

Hoping that this step will help restore me
To face my past and ask for forgiveness
Cleaning up my dirty side of this unswept street
Could this be the beginning of the end?

I once thought it better to regret
Things that I have done than haven't
Sometimes you've got to be wrong
And learn the hard way
And just when you're through hanging on
You're saved!

[Music: Dream Theater / Lyrics: Mike Portnoy]
