I hate this monster inside me
My body's breaking down
I'm alone and I can't breathe
You wouldn't understand, no chance
Cause I feel so fucking dead

Take the last drink, the bottles gone
Washed down my throat, I'm full, but empty
Guess I'm not the man that I wanna be
The bar's my only friend, and it's killing me
I'm not losing this fight, oh wait, I guess I just lost it last night
Guess I'm not the man that I wanna be
The bar's my only friend and it's killing me

Frail boy with a shallow mind
I'm not quite sure that I'm the type of guy
You should be hanging around
I tend to let people down

This is the last time getting high
Promises sound just like last night

I don't know anything anymore
Help me regain control

I've been dependent for so long
I need to leave
I've been dependent for so long
I need to live (again)

Take the last drink, the bottles gone
Washed down my throat, I'm full, but empty
Guess I'm not the man that I wanna be
The bar's my only friend, and it's killing me
I'm not losing this fight, oh wait, I guess I just lost it last night
Guess I'm not the man that I wanna be
The bar's my only friend and it's killing me

I'm drinking whisky like water
Cause water does nothing for me
I'm full of pain I need it more
I'm as empty as the whisky bottle on my floor

This is the end
I don't need this anymore
Taking control
Is finding strength to let it go

I'm drinking whisky like water
Cause water does nothing for me

    This song showed me drugs and alcohol don't help you with anything, just screw you up more. This helped me quit being an alcoholic and druggy

    Maybe you should spend less time trying to figure out what the lyricist meant by the lyrics, and worry more about what the meaning is for you.

    The obvious meaning is the drinking problem and rising above it, but to find the hidden meaning don't look at just the song, look at the rest of the album this song is an occurrence from the bands feelings of the other songs and they are trying to fix the problems in their lives
