Demon Alcohol

Album: No Rest for the Wicked (1988)
  • I'm sick and tired of your excuses
    Can't deal with living anymore
    I'll give you reasons to continue
    While you lie writing on the floor

    I'll wash away your lies
    And have you hypnotized
    There'll be no compromise today
    I'll share your life of shame
    I think you know my name
    I'll introduce myself today

    I'm the demon alcohol
    Demon alcohol
    I'll get you

    If you could deal with your reflection
    I'm sure you'd see into my eyes
    There'll be no need for resurrection
    Let's drink to people of the lies

    Although that one's too much
    You know ten's not enough
    There'll be no compromise today
    I'll watch you lose control
    Consume your very soul
    I'll introduce myself today
    I'm the demon alcohol
    Demon alcohol
    Ha ha
    Demon alcohol
    Demon alcohol, let's party

    (Demon alcohol)
    (I'm the demon alcohol)

    I'm sick and tired of resolutions
    You've quit me time and time again
    Don't speak of suicide solutions
    You took my hand, I'm here to stay

    This time it's you or me
    I'll never set you free
    There'll be no compromise today
    So satisfy your lust
    Too much can't be enough
    I'll introduce myself today

    I'm the demon alcohol
    The demon alcohol
    Demon alcohol
    Demon alcohol
