Step One

It was hard to admit complete defeat
Even as I sat in the depths of hell
No matter what anyone told me
Their notions I would always dispel.
I honestly thought I was quite unique
But I found out I was prisoner of fear
And if I admitted my life was unmanageable
Maybe I could get the hell out of here.
It was hard for me to believe that alcohol
Was the perpetrator in my life
I was always blaming you and others
For being the cause of all my strife,
I believe now if I want to change
I have to admit complete defeat
Realizing my life's unmanageable
Will keep me returning to my seat.
