The Poison That Destroyed You! ! ! ! ! !



go ahead again
reach for the bottle
and mabe if you drink enough
you wont wake up tomorrow

theres no point in you now
nobody loves you
i know you hear what they say
and i know this will destroy you

we told you once and then twice
we told you to stop you were a mess
you said you was fine
but now you live to regret

i knew you was pushing it
i knew she didnt love you
i knew you would be destroyed
but we did try to help you

you were once bullet proof
you were once my dad
now your stumbling in the gutter
looking for the life you didnt grab

it hurts me when you hurt
and i cry when you cry
but i dont drink when you drink
and i will not cry when you die
