Intoxication is being drunk if only for a little while

Intoxication can become a bad habit with a crooked smile

Being high and drunk all alone really makes no sense

Being homeless, a panhandler and a drunk can be a bad defense

The fear of not knowing what your next move can possibly be

Can be intoxicating without a drink, please believe me

The fear of failure constantly day in and day out

Can be a eye opener to a drunk to make a change, no doubt

Once you realize that there is another way to live everyday

To work, maintain your money and eventually find a place to stay

Things start to fall in order for you surely but slowly

As you start to make a change in your life ever so boldly

Intoxicating thoughts will no longer be able to hold you back

Understanding that with the help of God you can get your life on track

So don’t stay intoxicated by the fears of the world today

Go to church, read the bible and get on your knees and pray!
