Oblivion Calling

Lyrics about addiction Contest Winner 
The author has placed a warning on this post for language.























Not much color in the world this mornin’
And it ain’t just the sun up high that’s dawnin’
Not one damn cloud yet all I can see
The fog of the pain, she can lift for me

 
Take it away, baby...
 
Oblivion’s callin’, and she knows my name
She whispered escape and thus she became
My reason for living – it’s to her I’m crawlin’
Nothing else matters ‘cuz Oblivion’s callin’...

 
The afternoon has its own brand of ache
Everyone needs me and everyone takes
They clamor and claw ‘til my skin feels too tight
But she can release me – help my soul take flight

 
Zero hour, baby...
 
Oblivion’s callin’, and she knows my name
She whispered escape and thus she became
My flight to freedom from the pain that I’m haulin’
Nothing else matters ‘cuz Oblivion’s callin’...

 
When the sky’s gone black and life’s frame starts to haze
Emptiness starts creepin' – feel obscurity’s blade
It cuts ever deeper ‘til that moment arrives
Her touch and her taste...I need them to survive

 
You own me, baby...
 
Oblivion’s callin’, and she knows my name
She whispered escape and thus she became
My own medic to treat this soldier who’s fallin’
Nothing else matters ‘cuz Oblivion’s callin’...

 
Oblivion’s callin’, and she knows my name
She whispered escape and thus she became
My reason for living – it’s to her I’m crawlin’
Nothing else matters ‘cuz Oblivion’s callin’...

 
I’m your bitch ‘cuz you own my soul –
     You see, nothin’ else matters in Oblivion’s hold...


 

Writing Prompt
The words to the song,
Laughter All Around

You never knew the hurt you'd cause...trying to heal your pain...

and for our little girl...life will never be the same...

don't think that I'm trying to judge...because I've been there before...

you brought me back to life at the same very spot...where you died on the floor...

people say that this shit ain't deep... people say it's no reason to lose any sleep...

people think you can wear your heart on your sleeve...

but all there are is trackmarks where your heart used to be....

in this life all you wanted was peace and love...

I wish you could've found it several feet above...

know we all see you six feet below ground...

a terrible way to finally get friends and family around...

people say that this shit ain't deep...

people say it's no reason to lose any sleep...

people say you can wear your heart on your sleeve...

but all there are is trackmarks where your heart used to bleed...

people say that love is the answer...

well tough love can be more brutal than cancer...

the mind you try to escape never forgets the pain...

and when your eyes are open you feel it just the same...

the hardest thing I ever did was tell our little girl...

she would no longer see mommy in this world...

and dammit if you were clean I know you'd be around...

in the arms of your little girl, laughter all around....

dammit if you were clean I know you'd be around...

in the arms of your little girl, laughter all around.....
