Looking Sweeter

the world looks sweeter
and i feel neater
i have got my feet back
i have got a little self respect

control the drinking
control the thinking
strange bed companions
can’t stop a ship sinking
or the traits of champions

the world looks easier
and eases into a chair
i have found my life
and now it is good to share

who wants to fight?
control the thinking
control the drinking
control the leaving

the world changes
with every change,
in your pulse
the sea gets stronger
the pain is a strange strain
But not for much longer
