At times I wish I were dead
Busy people dancing all over my head
Real shock value with every move they make
Real bad headache with every step they take

I get a contact buzz
Can't remember what the problem was
I find it hard to even care
Life was too real till you got there

My life is dirt but you seem to make it cleaner
Reduce my felony to a misdemeanor
When I feel sick you're an antibiotic
Organize my world, my world's pointless and chaotic

I get a contact buzz
Can't remember what the problem was
I find it hard to even care
Life was too real until you got there

    General Commentas a fellow patron at the local watering holes around town i can relate to this song.there is a moment of silence when you are drunk and everything is going on around you and you are silent and still with thoughts going in and out of youre mind.

    My InterpretationThis might as well be called 'An Ode to Alcohol, for Better or Worse'.

    A beautiful song, nonetheless.
