did i learn to hate
from church or state
who chose for me, my palette
who knows, who cares

i keep on thinking
should i give up drinking
will i wake up breathing tomorrow
but every moment foments
till throwing it in
where i'm going
no one will follow

i burn my candle
my soul, i sell
what is money
i can't tell
an empty shell

which fasting or feasting
will pass like a bee sting
in rash and the riesling i swallow
and every moment
ferments till throwing up in
the closest thing
at hand and hollow

going away
for the evening
another day
dead and gone

no mind
your arms around me
feel safe
second to none

so dull
i lose focus
and pretend not to notice
