Verse 1

I'm gonna need someone to help me
I'm gonna need somebody's hand
I'm gonna need someone to hold me down
I'm gonna need someone to care
I'm gonna writhe and shake my body
I'll start pulling out my hair
I'm gonna cover myself with the ashes of you
And nobody's gonna give a damn

Chorus

Son of a bitch,
Give me a drink
One more night
This can't be me
Son of a bitch
If I can't get clean
I'm gonna drink my life away

Verse 2

Now for seventeen years I've been throwing them back
Seventeen more will bury me
Can somebody please just tie me down
Or somebody give me a goddamn drink

Chorus

Son of a bitch,
Give me a drink
One more night
This can't be me
Son of a bitch
If I can't get clean
I'm gonna drink my life away
[yeah eh-huh]

My heart was breaking, hands are shaking
Bugs are crawling all over me

Bugs are crawling all over me
My heart was breaking, hands are shaking
Bugs are crawling all over me
My heart was aching, hands are shaking
Bugs are crawling all over me

Give me a drink
One more night
This can't be me

If I can't get clean
I'm gonna drink my life away
