Get Drunk, Baby

When the world breaks your back and bends you to earth
When Mother Nature makes you regret your own birth
And other people are hell
 
Ask the wind, the wave, the rock, and the star
Have them tell you how they got to where they are
And bid your sorrows farewell
 
Get drunk, baby... Get drunk, baby....I’ll cover for you
Get drunk, baby... Get drunk, baby....I’ll cover for you
 
Life crosses us like scorpions ringed with fire
You taught me all I know about desire
And how to capture those Je t’aimes
 
I dreamed I made a deal with the devil
I don’t even know if I’m on the level
But there goes my Venus in flames
 
So get drunk, baby... Get drunk, baby....I’ll cover for you
Get drunk, baby... Get drunk, baby....I’ll cover for you
 
I tried to find myself but I was torn and scattered
You took me out to paint the town and found that I only splattered
With ruptures, bifurcations, and catastrophes
I try to stand up but I can’t seem to get off my knees
 
Modern living is the root cause of this cancer
Wine, poetry, or virtue is the answer
So get drunk on these things every day
 
Stop keeping rhythm to the time of white men
Start learning how to live your life again
Inebriated all the way
 
So get drunk, baby... Get drunk, baby....I’ll cover for you
Get drunk, baby... Get drunk, baby....I’ll cover for you
I’ll cover for you
I’ll cover for you
