"Tried & Crucified"

Tried & Crucified

Dealing with an alcoholic can be confusing and frustrating. An addiction brings a self-centered, narcissistic perspective to the surface. It's everyone else's fault. You never take responsibiltiy for what you bring to your troubles. You never accept the truth, which just leads to further lying to yourself. We wrote this song from the perspective of the alcoholic.


Tried & Crucified

Acke-Adams

i'm nothing but skin and bones
made up lies only jesus knows
defined by my highs and lows
and eyes that don't cry

i've become everything
everything i've tried not to be
i don't blame you for hating me
i hate myself sometimes

another drink in my hand
another reason to not give a damn
another word i shouldn't have said
oh to drown out the screams in my head
your damned hopes and dreams
ain't for people like me
tried and crucified

my god don't answer prayers
or maybe he just don't care
i guess this is your cross to bear
for what i believe

i'll leave here with no regret
on a white line of pain and mess
not sorry for what i left
this burden's not on me
