I need to understand,
Where you come from,
Where's your friend?
Do you do the things you do,
Just because you can?

I really need to know,
Which way the river flows.
Is it upstream in my mind,
Or down stream in my bed?

I saved your life, you say.
Well, I meant to do it anyway.
You were probably too drunk to notice,
And I'm too drunk to care.

I think I just got stabbed,
But I don't have time for that.
I've got better things to do,
Then bleed to my own death.

I really need to find,
The fear that's buzzing in my mind,
And get myself a quiet place.
