Sober, life is a prison
Shitfaced, it's a blessing
Sober, nobody wants you
Shitfaced, they're all undressing

Oh, sober, it's ever darker
Shitfaced, the moon is nearer
Sober, you're old and ugly
Shitfaced, who needs a mirror?

Oh, sober, you're a Cro-Magnon
Shitfaced, you're very clever
Sober you never should be
Shitfaced, now and forever

I gotta get
too drunk to dream
cause dreaming only makes me blue
I gotta get
too drunk to dream
because I only dream of you
I gotta get
too pissed to miss you
or I'll never get to sleep
I gotta drink
wine not to pine for you
And God knows that ain't cheap

I know you think I'm insane
I know it's not appealing
But till I'm feeling no pain
Guess what I'll be feeling

I gotta get
too drunk to dream
cause dreaming only makes me blue
I gotta get
too drunk to dream
because I only dream of you
I gotta get
too fried to cry
or I'll be crying all night long
I gotta get
too high to sigh,
Oh my God, where did I go wrong?

So why do I get plastered?
and why am I so lonely?
It's you, you heartless bastard
You're my one and only

I gotta get
too drunk to dream
cause dreaming only makes me blue
I gotta get
too drunk to dream
because I only dream of you

I gotta get
too pissed to miss you
or I'll never get to sleep
I gotta drink
wine not to pine for you
and God knows that ain't cheap
And God knows that ain't cheap

    General Commentgreatest song from the new album ! song lyrics are obvious enough - about trying to get over someone by drinking all the memories away. : )

    General CommentClassic Stephin, right here. One of my favorites off of Distortion, hands down. A sarcastic and biting tale of a guy getting plastered so he won't have to deal with the feelings left over after a breakup. I love the before and after contrast of how it's like when you're sober and what it's like once you're drunk... "the moon is nearer"!

    So morbidly funny, I love it. It was amazing hearing this live. Somehow with the distortion stripped off, it's even darker. :P
