Drugs and wine
Tears and sleep
When your guts have been screaming
At you
So loud.
Somethings wrong
Somethings wrong
Somethings wrong
But the answers
That float tantalizingly close
In little colourful bubbles
Ready to
Settle on your hand
Settle in your head
Settle on your heart
Before you can reach them
Drugs and Wine
Tears and sleep
That’s where the real answers are
Not in those bubbles
That tempt and tease
That allow theories and dreams
The truth is in
The drugs and wine
And tears and sleep
The emergence of honesty
Of your
Right there
Right then
