Chains Of Addiction
Breaking the chains of addiction,
are never easy at best;
For these chains are wrapped all around our thinking,
alwys putting us to the test.
We think we can find that one weak link
and live our lives as we choose;
In the end we find it was just a ploy
and our sobriety is what we lose.
The only true way to break these chains
is with the help of our higher power;
Giving us streangth and courage
to live each and every hour.
For with the help of our higher power
us slaves to addiction are free!
And the things we have are the things we need, ...
Lord help me to remember
and never to forget,
That you are the backbone
of my fishing net;
Lord you'r the net I speak of
and cast abroud each day;
To try to bring men back
in your loving ways
Without you I am lost
and cannot do a thing;
But with you'r love upon me
many souls I hope to bring
