Withdrawals Lyrics – Tom MacDonald

The doctor said to talk to him
If I wanted to get off my meds
But I never called his office in
Poured the bottle in the garbage can
I’m stuck in this apartment and
I’m anxious like the cops are here
I tried to call, like, all my friends
And none of them are answering

Is this the moment where I can’t control it?
Got no appetite, I guess the party’s over
I can’t sleep at night, and I keep rolling over
‘Cause my skin is itchy and the paranoia
Got me worried, sick, and it is so annoying
I been throwing up, it looked like motor oil
But I chose to quit, and now I can’t avoid it
The right things to do are the hardest choices
Is this the moment when I need a donor?
Liver failing from the liquor pouring
All the room is spinning, it ain’t vodka, soda
What is almost killing me is being sober

Talk about pitfalls
Surrounded by brick walls
This is what kids call
Withdrawals

Deleted every number from my phone, I’m staying home
Really wish that I was drunk with all my friends
I’m gonna beat it or I won’t and overdose
Really wish that I was high with all my friends

Never care for therapist
My arrogance embarrassing
It isn’t fair to tear with this
Addiction place my parents in
I’m scared repair will never fix
The voluntary negligence
The wear and tear my errors did
They almost had to bury me

Is this the moment where I screw up and relapse?
Waste all my money on rehab
Can’t take a pill from the doctor to relax
Lash out in anger whenever I react
Feel like a weak man, I don’t wanna be that
Living every day to get a buzz on the weekend
I’m in the deep end, fighting with demons
Tryna stay clean, I just really need a reason
My bones are shaking and my hands and feet
I see my rib cage, but I can’t eat
I still wake up panicking, so I can’t sleep
I just sit in the bathtub and try to breathe

Talk about pitfalls
Surrounded by brick walls
This is what kids call
Withdrawals

Deleted every number from my phone, I’m staying home
Really wish that I was drunk with all my friends
I’m gonna beat it or I won’t and overdose
Really wish that I was high with all my friends

I’ve never felt this bad before
I don’t know if I’ll make it
Don’t have the strength to get off the floor right now
But I’m hoping and praying
My whole life I wanted more
This might be the end
But now I’ve had too much fun, it’s over now
I loved what I hated

Deleted every number from my phone, I’m staying home
Really wish that I was drunk with all my friends
I’m gonna beat it or I won’t and overdose
Really wish that I was high with all my friends

Deleted every number from my phone, I’m staying home
Really wish that I was drunk with all my friends
I’m gonna beat it or I won’t and overdose
Really wish that I was high with all my friends
