  1. It’s my crutch
    and without it
    I cannot stand
    (Anything)
    Jesus said
    “Take up your bed and walk.
    You are healed through your faith”
    But I have no faith left
    I’ve used it all
    Born, gleaned,
    begged, borrowed, or stolen
    I drink because there’s nothing left to do
    Nothing left to do
    Miracles have happened
    I’ve seen some
    But what remedy is there
    for recurring nightmares
    daily in my life,
    taking the place
    of holy witness
    who once said “Yes!”,
    with open heart, mind, eyes;
    all closed now ~

    So… I’ve confessed
    and maybe I can take my rest…
    but not without drink,
    I’m sorry…
    Not without drink
    Such a state I
    wouldn’t wish on anyone,
    driven to describe
    the frailty of my humanity,
    as just one,
    who’s testified
