I don't drink alcohol, no need to feel high
And if I'm feeling down I'll read a book that makes me fly
I don't drink soft drinks, no need to fill my body with bubbles of lies, hate, pain, disgrace
And then burp and find myself in a lonely place

I don't drink no juice, no need to be a healthy fruit when I'm dying a few inches under my skin
Mr Phil said “All is vanity: no need to waste your breath”
You can eat as many apples as you want, Your peach skin won't teach you how to love your man

Don’t worry too much for me
It’s quite hard to go through a gate you don’t even see, but surely
I’m not afraid not to be as cool as you are!

I drink water
Here comes the boring one
I drink water
No hangover when the party is over 'cos it never is
I drink water
Till the day that my happy hour is all day long
I drink water
I'm a white fly that's proud to have never come back...

I don’t drink energy drinks, no need to be hyper all the time
Sometimes you need to get dirty in order to get rid of the
Grime that you’ve grown inside!
I’m sorry if I’m looking into your eyes, but you see
There’s a time to smile and another one to cry
To me you’re just a larva that’s too scared to become a butterfly

I don't drink oriental tea, no need to feel cool
Or anti-conformist with things that other people do
No need to empty my mind if I don't fill it with truths
No need to expand it “thank you” if I'm all alone on the roof

Don’t worry too much about me, it’s not hard to feel/see what my heart would love me to be
and surely I’ll do my best not to be as foolish as you are

And no, I won’t drink you away, you’re a person not a pint of ale
I’m sorry you had a bad day, but excuse me I don’t even know your name...


I know our days dehydrate us
but they told me that Saints are just sinners that keep on trying...
