Why won’t you get drunk?

Why won’t you get drunk?

You wake up every day into the same old routine

Basking in the false hope of a brighter future

Today goes like yesterday, and so does last week and this week

And so the liquor calls, and if it doesn’t, you do

Why won’t you get drunk?

You began your life with the thinking done for you

When you ought to take charge, you left your life to fate

When you saw that fate was mean, you began to blame

And on and on the blaming goes, and so does the liquor flows

Why won’t you get drunk?

When you first heard about God, you didn’t think you should know more

And on you went growing up, thinking it’s not a must

Now you’re 40 and you’re stuck, like car tyres in deep mud

So you sit with alcohol, wondering why you can’t stop

Why won’t you get drunk?

Raised in school, you started with a wishful thinking

‘Paid in full’ was your thought of the life of the city

You never thought of true people-relevance or ‘why am I here?’

Now you can’t tell what you’re missing nor what is making you get drunk

Why won’t you get drunk?

You deceive yourself you want to stop but you avoid the real questions

The government tweaks and you cry without even really knowing why

In search of laughter, you embrace the comfort of the bottle

A decision awaits; life or liquor
