drink drugs end life begine

You can’t find Happiness at the bottom of a bottle

A bottle becomes A bottomless pit

And the Person Drinking out of it,

The person that is searching for relief, with every sip

Well that person will eventually drown

Departing silently out of life without a sound

Because a person that drinks his life away doesn’t leave memories that stay

They fad away

All that they were and could have been

Not remember by a single friend

Because the only friend he kept beside him

Was a bottle, with the elixir to exterminate men

You can’t find happiness at the bottom of a bottle

A bottle becomes A bottomless pit

When you’re offered a hand, take it

Let it guide you out of the hole that you’re in

Try again; the first step is to begin

Do your best to find a way out

To suffer the pain, to go without

Without the drugs, without the drink

Take a look at your life before you sink
