Drowning Man…

He had a ten ton monkey on his back and oh, Lord
it was bringing him down.
He had built it up with bricks and stones and broken dreams,
he'd collected.
Choking on his existential angst he spit
black rage at the world.
Then he cauterized his wounds with whiskey and tears
of shame.

Drowning Man…

He had a lonely artist's lair where he could
use and abuse himself.
He had built it up with life in mind but got lost
on the way.
Slinging out sarcasm he would shoot down
Then he'd sling into a drunken haze and cry tears of shame

Drowning Man
Broken Soul
