80 Proof




What does it feel like to be less than a person?

What does it feel like to be half of a whole?

What comes after the cards are on the table?

What does it cost to put a dream on hold?


The first thing I did after you hung up,

was I poured myself a drink

and that one was good, so I had another

I took a dive into a bottle to find some room to think


Then I tried my best to blame you

and I tried my god damn best to cry

But 80 Proof wasn’t strong enough

My mind stayed clear and my eyes stayed dry.
