Uplifting Songs For Chipper People – or – Let Me Drown

I didn’t put on pants today. Instead, I skipped a meeting, lied to rich woman about being able to take care of her infected cactus, thawed some frozen chicken, and wrote this song.



Lyrics:
I woke up on the floor again this morning
My wallet’s here but all my money’s gone
There’s a throbbing in my head
As I make my empty bed,
But I tie my shoes and try to move along.

The church bells down the street are softly tolling,
And someone’s mourning a loved one they held dear
And as I’m shuffling by,
A tear falls from my eye
Cause I miss that girl and wish that she was here.

Ohhhhh, let me drown
This bottle is the only friend around.
The wheels are flat but this truck still runs
My back is good, but this load weights tons
And it seems the only way to go is down.

She used to lay her head down right beside me,
She used to whisper prayers into my ear.
And I sent her on her way
And regret it most every day,
My true love’s gone and I’m still waiting here.

Now the Angel’s share is in the Devil’s hand.
And there’s darkness in the heart of every man.
Mine surrounded her bright eyes,
And snuffed them out one at a time
Now I walk along the pathway of the Damned.

Ohhhhh, let me drown
This bottle is the only friend around.
The wheels are flat but this truck still runs
My back is good, but this load weights tons
And it seems the only way to go is down.
