New Year's Dissolution

Iím torn and Iím dead
Just like Mother said
There are no lights in my hair

Thereís nothing Iím worth
I regret my own birth
But thereís no-one to blame
Because I wasnít there

Iím dank and Iím sad
When I think what Iíve had
My mind is a blank
A pool of dry tears

Could I?

Pull back my soul
Make myself whole
Leave my carcass to pay all the bills

So the lights come back on
To show what went wrong
As I lurched
Blind
Drunk
Through the years

Maybe I could
But why, whatís the good

Itís not as though you lot would care
