Oblivion


O' Sweet Oblivion
Come unto me
Writ upon the label
'Jack Daniel's Whiskey'
The days are long
The nights are short
In the distance
I hear a report
I rip the door open
I run down the hall
My emotions are dying
Their blood stains the walls

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
