"Life it seems will fade away/ drifting further every day" while drinking this junk. Or not. It is what it is and forever shall be. Its OK. But let’s not stop, drop & roll all over the floor like our collective heads caught on fire. Speaking of which, if I caught on fire and I had a gallon of water and a gallon of this stuff, and a gallon of Blatz, I would definitely pound the gallon of Blatz while delicately washing my scrotum with the water and throwing this stuff on the fire. No sense wasting water or Blatz on such things. That is how I roll, Or I could hand these out to unruly neighbors and scream at them to go piss up a rope.
