A Thousand Broken Wings

The dust begins to settle,

Once again I see clear,

History keeps repeating,

And a waste of another year,

Addiction needs a pacifier,

Its grip is unrelenting,

I'm sorry for what I have become,

A monster that's repenting,

So please pass me some give a damn,

Mine was sold somewhere behind,

I'll soon trade you some "I'm clean and sober",

My life will be redefined,

I just want to live my life,

Break free from these chains,

Finally see some brighter days,

Every single day it rains;

The blame is on the one I see,

It's never been any clearer,

He's the one looking back at me,

When I look into a mirror.
