Sober

I'm standing on the precipice  
Feeling so much less than this  
Sobriety that I've earned  
  
Some part of me wants to burn it down  
Bury myself deep underground  
Revoke everything I've learned  
  
Insecurities shooting through  
This happiness feels too good to be true  
I don't know why I'm so concerned  
  
Breaking free of this dis-ease  
My mind is clear, but I'm not pleased  
A happy medium I can't discern  
  
All I wanted was normality  
And I don't know if it's enough for me  
When the demons within return  
  
Days spent in silent contemplation  
Wondering if I deserve salvation    
Inside me, all my sin burn  
  
And I ache to feel oblivious  
Drown it out with an amber kiss  
For some release I yearn  
  
So I'm standing on the precipice  
Feeling so much less than this  
Sobriety that I've earned
