I've been havin' too many of them lost weekends
Memory it fades
Wakin' up on the floor amongst beer cans and mirrors
And razor blades
No I ain't a weekend warrior it just goes on and on
All through the week
Every week of every month
Every month of every year
I'm on a losin' streak

Stimulants, they keep me up
And the booze, it keeps me down
There's all kinds of rumors 'bout me
Spreadin' all around the town
And my eyes are always red
And the skies are always grey
I'm fightin' off them hunger pains
My headaches just won't go away

But hey
I've got problems
I've got flames
All around me
And it's burnin', I'm in pain
I can't descend any lower
I'm in the deepest pit
Down at the bottom
And I know that this is it
Someday this hole will be filled
And my wish is fulfilled

I've been havin' too many of them lost weekends
They're catchin' up with me
I get so bent out of shape about the state that I'm in
I need a remedy
But I know I'll never find one
So I'll just keep on boozin'
And poppin' pills
And I know I'll never wise up
So I'll just keep hurting myself
Until it kills

I'm not gettin' any sun
It's been 40 days of rain
And the whiskey makes a void
Where there used to be a brain
I get angry messages
'Bout the things that I did say
But I don't remember them
The fleeting thoughts have gone away

And I know the reaper's near
I can't avoid his icy touch
I've been goin' too far down
And I've consumed way too much
I'm fatigued beyond belief
I'm feelin' tired every day
I've been lookin' down and out
And my old friends, they went away
