Hey addiction, can I please talk to you for a minute?

Well, I can't keep letting you win
I just can't seem to let you escape from my head.

Addiction I need you to leave me alone
I have a family to take care of and need me at home.

I keep picking up beer bottles, I can hardly pay the bills and put food on the table.

Please addiction, please let me go I can't keep going home every night wasted, screaming and hitting my wife when the kids are home.

Addiction can't you see what you're doing to me? My wife is crawled up in a corner screaming at me to stop. "The kids are crying, your scaring them."Yet as I look at their faces and I see them terrified, they're hesitated to even look at me. Can't you see I don't even give a fuck. I keep screaming at her telling her how worthless she is, beating her till she is bleeding.

Addiction, I don't like what you're doing to me. I can't even look myself in the mirror. You're killing me, I'm not just losing myself, I am losing my family. My kids won't even come near me.

I just wanted to tell you, this is the last time I have to deal with you. I am not going to be here anymore. I don't like who I am so I'm leaving tonight. I just wanted to say goodbye.
