I was a loner until there were no friends left
And before someone offered me drugs
You know I was straight edge

And everyone quits til you offer them a cigarette
Before we learn our lesson
Lets see how bad things can get

And I'll drink myself to death!
Or at least I'll drink myself to sleep!
Chainsmoke my way through the gaps in between
My aspirations and my apathy.

As we drive past the last exit to home I am waving goodbye
And I might be sleeping in the ditch tonight
But it's alright cuz whiskey is my kind of lullaby!

I was sober all morning til I woke up this afternoon
And before someone offered me a job ya know I was gonna get one soon

And everyone in this town sleeps til the calender collides with june,
Before the booze wears off lets take another shot or two.

And I'll drink myself to death!
Or at least I'll drink myself to sleep!
Chainsmoke my way through the gaps in between
My aspirations and my apathy.

As we drive past the last exit to home I am waving goodbye
And I might sleeping in the ditch tonight but it's alright
Cuz whiskey is my kind of lullaby

Lullaby!
