A song about facing up to addiction, realising it's almost the point of no-return, it's time to turn things around or be lost forever.


Take my hand and walk me through the past
It's hard to say how long it's gonna last
Draw a line in the sand, you know your hand is shaking
I lose track when I count all the pills I'm taking

Don't look now but I feel the need to cry
It's hard to understand the reason why
Take another hit to make it go away
Tell another lie to make it through the day

So easy to get, so hard to let go
You're at the point of no return before you know.
That losing hand you're holding
Well you know you should be folding
You take the money with both hands and walk away.

Take a look at yourself, you don't like what you're seeing:
Bloodshot eyes and a heart that's barely beating.
You feel the water running through your hand
Ice-cold water feels like burning sand.
Feel the water running through your hand
Ice-cold water feels like burning sand.

(Ice-cold water feels like burning sand)
