Dry Drunk

Dry Drunk

Five years sober and still lonely
Afraid and full of pain
I don't understand what's going on here
Where's the freedom I was supposed to gain.

What's that you say have I worked the steps
I go to meetings isn't that enough
A man like me doesn't have to do the steps
I'm too big and I'm too tough.

What's that you say who's my sponsor
Hell I can do it on my own
I don't need to follow some suckers path
I can live in my own crazy zone.

Working with others is that what you said
Sorry I don't have the time
I'm to worried about taking care of myself
By the way can you spare a dime.

I don't understand why my life hasn't changed
I go to meetings almost everyday
And when my day isn't going like I want it too
Sometimes I even get on my knees and pray.

Maybe I don't deserve what you've found
Or maybe I just don't care
Maybe it's all the changes I fear
I'm used to living in a life of despair.

Five years sober and still lonely
Afraid and full of pain
I guess when I'm tired of being sick and tired
I'll do what it takes to change.
