This is a dedication to my mom's divorce. This is what I'd do in that situation.

Standing above a tiny grave as it begins to rain
Thinking how those drops are mocking all my emotional pain
And all our times and memories keep running through my head
I'm too young to have straight whiskey, so it's IBC instead

Staring at a little box with a ring inside
Looking at the source of all this grief I try to hide
Drinking the one liquid that can erase my emo blues
I'm too young to have straight whiskey, so IBC will have to do

Now the grave is just a hole, because you're sure not worth a stone
Because, in truth, that ring was the part of you I ever owned
So now you're just a piece of gold laying in the dirt
I'm too young to have straight whiskey, so IBC will cure my hurt

Now our lives are just too short to linger on one pain
You've got to keep on rolling if you want to win the game
We all know that those strong drinks will leave you dead
We're all too good for whiskey, so drink IBC instead!
