One Night I Lost Myself in a Bottle of Scotch

One night I lost myself
In a bottle of scotch.
To spite the eyes of time
I threw away my watch,
To spite the eyes of angels
Over my head
I found a young devil
And took her to bed.

One night I found myself
Stumbling, confused;
The wind tried to carry me
But I refused.
A man walked beside me,
His face never showed,
I woke up the next morning
On the side of the road.

I met an old man
In a darkened roadside bar;
He sang songs of loneliness
On his old guitar.
I brought him to the graveyard
Where he laid by a grave,
He looked into my eyes
And said, “Now I am saved.”

This drink in my right hand
I bring to my lips,
It tightens my head
And loosens my hips.
My vices I don’t feel
The need to defend.
This drink is my starting,
This drink is my end.
