Overcoming Addiction

So I'm at AA on a Saturday night
My addiction's pissed, wants to put up a fight.
I ain't rollin' like a gangster like I used to be,
I'd rather keep it real and just be me.
Gettin' clean ain't easy by any means
But I'm lettin' go, I don't wanna be no fiene.

Shit gets tough cuz I can't leave home.
Don't got a car and I can't use my phone.
Lost a job I loved blowin' up that stanky smoke,
Really didn't care as long as I got to toke.

Every day I survived doin' the same ol' thing
Lyin, cryin and dyin..I gave away my wings
Lost my mind, lost love
Lost myself, lost everything
Guess I wasn't prepared for what my wretched sin would bring.
Oh God grant me this, will you give me back my wings...
Please, just give me back my wings.

Cant stop but dont you get offended.
This ride is more than halfway ended.
Your love has got my heart addicted.
Hit the road I'm tired of your bullshit.

You always kept in mind my interests.
So what, now you're on my shit list.
Cocaine you're nothing but a danger.
To my health your hazards are no stranger.

But hear me now, I just want to be free.
From the needle, from the pills, from the damn authority!
Lord, have mercy take this demon far from me,
Mold me and bless me with true sobriety.

I'm ready to change, tired of bein' all fucked up.
Gonna get myself straight and finally grow up.
I'll never have to wonder where all my money goes,
My bills will be paid instead of bleedin' up my nose.
I'm frightened but I'm willing to make this big, new, needed change.
Like a bloody murder, this damned addictions gonna hang.

Every day I survived doin' the same ol' thing
Stealin, dealin and killin...I gave away my wings.
Lost my mind, lost love Lost myself, lost everything.
Guess I wasn't prepared for what my wretched sin would bring.
Oh God grant me this, will you give me back my wings...
Please, just give me back my wings.
Father, will You give your child back her wings...
