Lightning crashes
Up from the ashes
Comes that feeling back again

Thought you’d escape it
Maybe you’d fake it
You were never on the mend

Burning inside you
Sneaking behind you
Consciousness is not your friend

Two pills for sleeping
Three more for dreaming
Five more and then you can pretend

That this is what you planned
The life that you’ve foreseen
Calling yourself a man
While you’re choking on the string

In the distance
Couldn’t miss it
That old train rolls on again

Broken and battered
Beaten and weathered
Cost too much to make amends

Crawling inside you
Floating behind you
Bottles are never your friend

Four drinks for leaning
Eight for deceiving
Five more and then you can pretend

That this is what you planned
The life that you’ve foreseen
Calling yourself a man
While you’re choking on the string
