Vodka

January 26th, 2009

As time went by
Your addiction only grew
And after some time
You’re not the same mother I knew
Almost a bottle a day
Your memory grows weak
And every time I repeat myself
My words you’ve never heard me speak
And for the both of us
I must remain the one who’s strong
And even though you doubt me
I know you’re the one who’s wrong

Dear Honda

You only get one life
And you used yours to end another
Did you ever stop to think
That he was someone’s brother
He was someone’s father
He was someone’s friend
How could you expect to drive drunk
Without thinking someone’s life would end

The Secret Life of Dolls

Let’s go back
To a story that never started
Where a porcelain toy
Wasn’t left broken hearted
Let’s go back
To memories that don’t exist
Because the bruises never formed
At the hands of angry fists
Let’s go back
To when you didn’t drink the bottle
It fell empty on its own
And you’re still a perfect role model
Let’s go back
To when you didn’t let me down
You must have told me you were moving
Before you left town
Let’s go back
To when our family was defined
And I will delete what never happened
From the archives of my mind
