I liked going to school,
I didn't want to fool around with drugs
Cuz all of my friends were dropping out
I had to get stuff done, I wasn't fun
I didn't try pot 'til I was 21,
But now I'm overcompensating

I'd like to see what morning looks like
Don't wanna drink pint after pint
I wanna wake up without feeling sick
But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic
I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic
I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic
I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

At 28 I realized
Hydrocodone was pretty great
For hangovers and late night hangs
I decided to spend my life having the best of times
It's too bad most of them I'll probably forget

And now I know what morning looks like
But only when I greet it from the previous night
My friends are telling me that I need to find a clinic
But I won't cuz I'm a drug-addicted alcoholic
I won't cuz I'm a drug-addicted alcoholic
I won't cuz I'm a drug-addicted alcoholic
I won't cuz I'm a drug-addicted alcoholic

Can't stop taking drugs
