cunning, baffling, powerful

 

powerless

I got drunk last night

there was a fight 

the cops showed up

put me in handcuffs

the kids were crying

the neighbors were screaming

red and blue lights

lighting up the neighborhood.

 

O Lord, I got drunk last night

they put me on the ground

in handcuffs

dogs were barking

people cursing at me

dragged me to the car

cold jail cell

crying, cursing, screaming

crying, cursing, screaming 

wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

damn it, wake up

crying, soaked in sweat

shaking

I got drunk last night

but it was just a dream

O Lord, it was just a dream.

THANK YOU GOD FOR REMINDING ME

THANK YOU GOD FOR LOVING ME
