Doctor I've been thinking
That maybe this drinking
Is talking it's toll

Doctor I've been feeling
That panicky feeling
Of losing control

And everywhere I turn there's an enemy
And everywhere I turn there's an enemy

Doctor I've been thinking
That maybe this thinking
Is gonna be the end of me

I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand
I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand
Need a calculator to count up my problems
But I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand

Doctor I've been thinking
That maybe it's
Time to put it aside

I can't stop thinking
That maybe I've got
No good left inside

And every new leaf I turn turns deadly
Every new leaf I turn turns deadly

Doctor I've been thinking
That maybe I'm drinking
So I won't see what's left of me

I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand
I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand
Need a calculator to count up my problems
But I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand

Doctor I've been thinking
That maybe this drinking
Is plain out of control

I can't stop thinking
That maybe it'll
Never ever let me go

In every mirror I see my worst enemy
In every mirror I see my worst enemy

Doctor I've been thinking
That maybe this thinking
Is gonna be the end of me

I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand
I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand
Need a calculator to count up my problems
But I could count my friends on the fingers of one hand

Am I too far gone? Doctor tell me straight
Am I too far gone? Did I come too late?
Am I too far gone? Do I have the time?
Am I too far gone to walk a straight line?
