Intoxication

(Erin Jordan and The Whiskey Romance)
September, 2008
Erin Jordan
The shards of glass are shimmering
They shine like shiny diamonds on the curb
We’re mining for rhinestones and chicken bones
While the mice circle in herds
Intoxication, growing stonger…..

Insomnia, delirium, hysteria
It’s all just in your head
You opened up the book and now you can’t go back
You can’t forget what you just read
Intoxication, growing stronger…..
Hold on longer…….

Boarded up windows and for rent signs
Overgrown lawns and two dollar wine
The last few decades left this town to bleed
And religion gets loud as the check get small
Religion gets loud as the checks get small
Religion gets loud
Intoxication, growing stronger…..
Hold on longer…..
Hold on longer….


Now the lights are getting in
You’re walking down that path again
Falling through the cracks
Of the side walk you thought you’d already passed
Do you believe
That this town is like a lover that you’ll never, never leave
Do you believe
That this town is like a love you’ll never, never leave

Intoxication, growing stronger
Hold on longer….
Hold on longer….
Hold on longer…..
Hold on longer…..
