SHUT DOWN Woke semi-sober at 4 a.m. Went to the garage to check for dents on my car but it wasn’t there Hope I had the sense to leave it somewhere And it’s not in a ditch or impound lot Being inspected by a gungho cop Finding blood and hair on the grill From someone or something I wounded or killed I shut down the saloon Shut down the thoughts of you Shut down the years of abuse Shut down the shame and confusion Shut down the hard truths They’ll never let me loose Someday I might be a better man He’ll face the pain better than I can now More moving forward despite the storms Fewer retreats to the familiar and warm But today I need to shut it all down So I drink enough to drown Still I don’t want to wreck your day If you see me you should go the other way I shut down the saloon Shut down the thoughts of you Shut down the years of abuse Shut down the shame and confusion Shut down the hard truths They’ll never let me loose
