Sober October

TWENTY ONE DAYS TO FORM A HABIT

IT’S THERE WAITING FOR YOU TO REACH OUT AND GRAB IT

YOU CAN HAVE IT IF YOU WANT IT

MAKE A HOME AND LEAVE IT HAUNTED

TWENTY ONE WAYS TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE

DAY YOU TRIED TO TAKE IT TO THE

PLACE YOU SAW THE PIECE YOU NEEDED

TO FIND THE PROOF THAT YOU SUCCEEDED

BEAT IT OUT OF THEM UNTIL THEY

TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU CAN’T SAY

TO THE ONES WHO NEVER LISTEN

TO THE SOUND OF YOUR CONDITION

WHICH ONE MAKES YOU CHOOSE BETWEEN THEM

MAKES YOU FEEL YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THEM

GIVES YOU YET ANOTHER REASON

YOU CAN’T MAKE IT THROUGH THE SEASON

ALIVE LIKE THEY SAID YOU WOULD BE

WHEN YOU GREW TO BE WHO THEY BELIEVE

WHEN YOU SAY THAT YOUR’E STARTING TO DIE

ON THE DAY THAT YOU STARTED TO TRY NOT TO LIE TO YOURSELF

TWENTY ONE DAYS TO START A FRIENDSHIP

TWENTY ONE WAYS TO TRY TO END IT

YOU CAN’T MEND IT IF YOU BEND IT

‘TILL YOU BREAK IT IN THE END IT’S

BETTER TO HAVE LOVED AND LOST IT

THAN TO WONDER WHAT IT COSTS TO

SPEND ANOTHER WINTER SAFE AND

WARM INSIDE A STORM THAT’S BREAKING

THROUGH THE DORMANT SAFETY THAT YOU

SLEEP WITH TRYING NOT TO WAKE YOU

FROM A DREAM ABOUT A REASON

TO MAKE IT THROUGH ANOTHER SEASON

ALIVE LIKE THEY SAID YOU WOULD BE

WHEN YOU GREW TO BE WHO THEY BELIEVE

WHEN YOU SAY THAT YOUR’E STARTING TO DIE

ON THE DAY THAT YOU STARTED TO TRY NOT TO LIE TO YOURSELF
