Lyrics:

Another bender
Another night that I won't regret cause I can't remember
And if you think I should attack that monkey snuggled on back
I'm afraid my friend I'd rather just surrender.

Cause I'm about to make another mistake
So lets order up another round
Cause I must confess that I need the rest before I hit the ground

In another lifetime
I might not need to reach so much for that boozy lifeline
I could doze off every night without some noisy barroom fight
Of all the winners and the losers in my mind

So if you're lucky enough to have a life with love
And your demons don't make a sound
You're not gonna guess why I need the rest
Before I hit the ground

It's always hurts
Every time I hit rock bottom it gets a little worse
And if I could
You know I'd gladly take the sleep without the falling
Always falling

I'm not pretending
I'll never say this was the life that I was intending
It's an awful price to pay but I'll keep on paying anyway
If it's a choice between the breaking or the bending

Some bridges will burn
My guts will churn
And my poor head's gonna pound
But I must confess that I need the rest before I hit the ground

Some bridges will burn
My guts will churn
And my poor head's gonna pound
But it feels so good to catch my breath before I hit the ground
