Someone at their wits end sitting at the bar mumbling softly.

Never more than a drink away from imploding

Preachers preach

Faces scream

Dry words stumble out onto this dusty sheet

But I can not lie, I am never more than a drink away from collapsing

God offers promises and hope

But my hope was slayed to rest long ago

I pray this dusty sheet carries my last plea

But I can not lie, I am never more than a drink away from collapsing
