The Slow Descent into Alcoholism

This song is by The New Pornographers and appears on the album Mass Romantic (2000).

I said, my
My slow descent
Into alcoholism, it went
To my head, where I really need it
With abuse that remained untreated

I said, my, my, my, my slow descent
Into alcoholism, it went

Salvation holdout central
Salvation holdout central
Salvation holdout central

I said, my ever-loosening grip
On the commonest courtesies slipped
From my hands, where I really need her
When I need change for the parking meters

I said, my, my, my, my slow descent
Into alcoholism, it went
Something like this song
Something like this song
