One Time, Once Too Many

You can’t see what’s inside of me
You think that I am empty
All you see is a blank staring face
And a mouth constantly drooling

You make fun of me, call me names
Say that I’m wasting air breathing
It pains me so these words I hear
You don’t know I can hear you

There is no way to let you know
That I'm here, inside of me
I think and feel just like you do
But there’s no way I can tell you

So count your blessings while you can
For life is so uncertain
Before I drove whilst I was drunk
My life was fairly normal

My luck ran out, I’d pushed too far
This was one time, once too many

Life has a way of being demanding these days for sure.
