The song WAKE. I wrestled with this one, because its really personal. I wanted to release it as a "Christmas" song, but its dark and not really the best song for Holiday Cheer. I wrote it about someone I know and their struggle with pills and my struggle to help them. People can only be helped if they want to and are ready to. This one is for everyone that struggles with addiction and to all of those who live with an addict. #PERMACRUSH #WAKE



She was a drug addict,

She cheated at Christmas,

Took her share of hits,

I took so many misses,

Got so blown out that,

She hoped I'd forget,

I picked up the pieces,

Prescription roulette,

So goddamn helpless,

I can't put into words,

You lay motionless,

High as the birds,

All it did was,

Left me disturbed,

That was when I decided to move on...


Because I'm free from all the drama,

All the bullshit and the pain,

Free from ever again having to play,

Your one-sided game,

Free to know its okay,

You don't care what's at stake,

Free to never have to worry,

That you won't wake,

You won't wake...
