“Silhouette”

put down the glass
it’s not like you need it to feel alive
everyone’s just looking for an escape
but it’s not the safety net that will save you

a kaleidoscope of bottles
everyone of them deceptive in their intent
marketed to extravagance
but will leave you a shadow of who you used to be
you’ve got to shake off that addiction

so reach down, down deep to what makes you happy
the emptiness in your soul can’t be filled by another bottle
take a deep breath and one sober step forward
you can let it go

life’s more than the blurred visions and temporary highs
so reach out – past the crowded bars and drunken masses
grab my hand
i know I can save you
because I once was you
