The Beat of the Drum

Seemed to want to go a bit closer to spoken word with this, would have liked a few more verses, but the muse left me.

Empty words
And empty brain
Are all that remain
Since you walked out
They’re all that remain
All that remain

And the beat of my heart
Is the beat of the drum
That keeps me up at night
That keeps me up at night
And the beat of the drum
Is the beat of my heart
With the skin so tight
With the skin so tight
The beat of my heart
Is the beat of the drum
So painful at night
So painful at night

And the whisky stings
As I drink my pain
To pretend I’m sane
With my head held high
As I drink my pain
I drink my pain

And the beat of my heart
Is the beat of the drum
That keeps me up at night
That keeps me up at night
And the beat of the drum
Is the beat of my heart
With the skin so tight
With the skin so tight
The beat of my heart
Is the beat of the drum
So painful at night
So painful at night
