Drunk Absurdity

Can I drink the pain away?
Can I drown out the memories?
I don't want to think about yesterday,
during those days it was easy to play
I can't ignore the thump in my heart
But being too drunk to care is a start
Let live my life, I'll let my past die
Each drop of alcohol is one less tear I cry
I can drown my cries with loud music
I can smother my thoughts with words not my own
Let other people feel what I don't want to
But blast that music, words sung with memories sewn
I won't sit in silence, let my heart be heard
Staring in the mirror, facing the truth...
That'd be absurd
