lyrics

Verse:

I consult the mirror
To make sure that I see
Exactly what they expect me to be.
Perfectly composed
Not a flaw exposed
And ready to face whatever the night may bring.
I'm greeted with robotic arms
And overexcited welcome alarms
Pushed toward the amateur pharmacy
Where they'll cure my ails of sobriety
Here's to shot 1, shot 2, shot 3,
Take me to the level of my company.

Chorus:
Somebody catch me!
I'm falling down!
Am I in living yet? Am I having fun?
Drunken words are sober thoughts and in my mind's eye
This social elixir is my alibi.

Verse 2:
I know from my own experience
Liquor has a tendency to melt inhibitions
What I didn't account for, what I should have foreseen
Is that it aint who you'd want to be.
The stigma is high, you’re obliged to get drunk
Cause that’s the only way that you're more fun,
So the reigning champ, ms Hyde has won
And her chaos has only just begun.

Chorus

Interlude:
You think you know yourself?
Ha! What do you know?
You think you'll be the one
Who can stay under control?
Think again, my friend.
This drink will swallow you whole!

CHORUS

Outro:
Somebody catch me!
Am I living yet?
I’m falling down!
This social elixir is my one regret.
