I once drank for a very long time
Weeks and months just flew right by
My memory was handicapped
I can’t blame my genetics, did not have an accident
I just melted my steel trap

I misplaced everything that mattered
Conversations and my tattered
Notebooks in the street
The folks I love I barely know
When I forget it leaves me low
I’ve lost my memories

So use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without
Use it up, wear it out

Got my coffee and cigarettes
My blood rises and I start to sweat
But they treat me just fine
In the morning I can’t breathe
I still light up like a machine
I swear I’ll quite sometime

Whiskey left me sleeping on the floor
Getting lit doesn’t do it anymore
So I’m done, I do without
But once a month the notion moves me
The same motion that I’m doomed to repeat
Will I learn my lesson now?
