Why did this disease choose me?
The devil in disguise tries to ruin me
They say it’s not my fault
My life is a wound covered in salt
We make mistakes to learn from
With poison on my lips what have I become?
You’ve taught me lessons and the truth is now found
But I couldn’t help but wonder if I’d be better off in the ground
I’ve hurt myself and those around me
I thought I got rid of him, how did he find me?
This poison helped me to escape for awhile
But when I return, lost is my smile
You love to depress me, you pretend to be fun
No longer will you fool me, for I am done
You turn me into a different person
I’m banishing you before the situation worsens
I’m so tired of not being happy inside
You turn me into Jekyll and Hyde
Why me? Why am I the black sheep?
Too many nights I’ve cried myself to sleep
I want to get better, I want to start anew
Starting right now, I’m getting rid of you
You’ve poisoned me for too long
It’s time that I get headstrong
I’m taking charge of my life
No more flirting with this knife
I’m going to be okay by myself
I’m taking that dusty Big Book off my shelf
Life is a journey and my brain needs to unpack
Without the devil on my back
I’m better without you poisoning me
It took me forever to realize sobriety is the key
