lyrics

BLACKOUT
Nikki Shaw / Jay Clementi

It all started far from home
At night when I was all alone
Trying to dose off with my headphones on
Praying for a couple winks
But I just can't fall asleep
Those images are just too strong
God I wish I could
It would feel so dam good
To just

Black Out Black Out
A cold 24 pack to knock me out
Stop this dark and desperate dreaming
Peaceful sleep is all I'm finding
I just want to rack out but it kills me to say the only way
Is to Black Out Black Out

Now it's back to normal life
I can't forget the sacrifice
I'm at home but I'm still there
Everyday I play the game
But I know I'm not the same
My life is hanging on a prayer
I stop buy the six around five
At nine I'm feeling fine and by ten its time

Black Out Black out
A cold 24 pack to knock me out
Stop this dark and desperate dreaming
Peaceful sleep is all I'm finding
I just want to rack out but it kills me to say the only way
Is to Black Out Black Out

The only way I know
To let the darkness go
And rest my weary soul
Is to…

Black Out Black Out
With a cold 24 pack to knock me out
Stop this dark and desperate dreaming
Peaceful sleep is all I'm finding
I just want to rack out but it kills me to say the only way
Is to Black Out Black Out
I'm gonna
Black Out Black Out
I'm so Tired
I'm gonna Black Out
