"O, Alcohol"

O alcohol alcohol, take me away
I don't want to be here the rest of my day
And yeah you might kill me but now that's ok
O alcohol alcohol, take me away

O alcohol alcohol, please take my mind
Please take it away so that I just might find
The fruits of my labors instead of just rinds
O alcohol alcohol, please take my mind

Well I drank to the city and I drank to the lights
And I drank this fire whisky till the devil took my side
He said if I keep drinking he'll show me a better life
He burned me with his promise and he opened up my eyes

I can change I can change I can change my ways
I know I can, I can make it through the haze
And if you don't believe me well you know you're not alone
O alcohol alcohol please take me home
