The good book holds the reasons
I believe the way I do
And all I needed to know
I was taught in Sunday school
But I lived like those rules
Were for everyone but me
With selfish disregard
For how it hurt my family

I staggered down the hall to our bed
She helped steady me and said
How can you think like you think
Turn around and drink like you drink
You can barely stand up when you kneel down to pray
How can you tell our children to be strong
And fight temptation in a world gone wrong
How can you think like you think and drink like you drink

Bless that girl that looks out for me
With the faith and the love of a saint
Give me the strength to make sure that she
Never again has to say

How can you think like you think and drink like you drink
You can barely stand up when you kneel down to pray
How can you tell our children to be strong
And fight temptation in a world gone wrong
How can you think like you think and drink like you drink
How can you think like you think and drink like you drink

“This song was co-written with David Banning almost fifteen years ago. I started that one after I had been on a rather long bender while I was in my metal band in L.A. that carried over to when I got home. A year or two after that, we were able to get it finished.
“This song was co-written with David Banning almost fifteen years ago. I started that one after I had been on a rather long bender while I was in my metal band in L.A. that carried over to when I got home. A year or two after that, we were able to get it finished. Recorded for the first time a long time ago on a record that is now out of print, we figured this was the right record to bring this one back to life.”
