Lyrics

Bottle of Drugs

Written By: Ego

I take a sip of the bottle
so I can see tomorrow
to get past all the drama
But it overflows like lava
I almost slipped in a coma
Can`t think when I`m sober
Where`s the gun for the holster
Cause yeah I want it over

Life is a bottle of drugs
No love, but im all fucked up in the game
Can I get a little bit of what
No love, but im all fucked up in the game

So now she wanna sex me
and she so damn sexy
so depressing,
she wanna sleep with the lonely
see everytime I breathe see
It will be the epitome
of that of a bad dream
just to remind me

Life is a bottle of drugs
No love, but im all fucked up in the game
Can I get a little bit of what
No love, but im all fucked up in the game

Now why you wanna test me
When God wouldnt even bless me
must be a bad seed
I did my thing in Jersey
With the crooks and thieves
im my own worst enemy
bound to blaze in a thousand degrees

Now why would life wanna be such a bitch to me
please tell me
Now why would I risk it all just to be happy

Life is a bottle of drugs
No love, but im all fucked up in the game
Can I get a little bit of what
No love, but im all fucked up in the game
