Through Drunk Eyes


Walking around the streets at night
after a long night of partying
you see it all
your eyes become awakend
even though its blury you see everything
you see who poeple for who they really are
you see yourself for who you really are
everything is bigger after a drink or two
everything becomes clearer
and everything becomes easier
it's easier to speak your mind
easier to tell others what you feel about them
this is what drink can do
it can release the innerself to the world
and bring to the front for everybody to see
it's not pretty but it's true
the drunk self is the truth
you see the world for what it really is
and just walking around at night
you see everything
you see everything pour out of poeple
all their feelings and fears
all their hopes and dreams
and i join them
i join them in releasing myself
i join them and tell them my hopes and dreams
my feelings and fears
nobody is scared when drunk
nobody is scared to let themselfs be shown
drunkness is real
and through drunk eyes you see all reality
and just walking through the streets
you can see all reality clearly.
