lyrics

I lie here pretending I'm something I'm not
Like I have self control that you know I ain't got
Like I'm not as hopeless
As you always thought
Well I lie here and try to convince you I'm clean
And I know that to do this is evil and mean
I'm no different
Than the tragedy you've always seen
'Cause the elephant in the room
Is the bottle in my bag
My whole life smells like the circus
And still you can't see the red flags
I once was the strongman now walking the tight rope in drag

'Cause I drank more whiskey than water today
I drank more whiskey than water today
You loath me, my love 'cause I'm lying to get you to stay
When I promise you I'll drink more water than whiskey someday
Promise you I'll drink more water than whiskey someday

This Garden is empty, the moon has gone dark
Not a sound in this wilderness, except for my heart
And it's pounding
Like it's gonna explode
Well this life never was such a walk in the park
Endless journey and I didn't ask to embark
So I stumble
Along some strange Roman Road
And I use
Any medicine I lay my hands on
Then I disappear
Along with any ground I had to stand on
So I fear
When I fall I'll have nothing to land on
Come on, fall into Nothing with me

And we'll drink more whiskey than water today
We'll drink more whiskey than water today
I'm lying, my love 'cause I need you and want you to stay
When I promise you I'll drink more water than whiskey someday
Promise you I'll drink more water than whiskey someday

Come on and fall into Nothing with me
