About Blackout Songs 

‘You told me you loved me, once. You said you carried me. You remember that? You still carry me? Or did you drop me, somewhere along the line?’

At an accidental AA meeting, an intense attachment forms. They are drawn instantly together. Later, they resume drinking. There is a feeling that they may have met before, maybe in a past life…but that’s not possible, maybe they’re just thinking about other people. If they could get sober and work things out, everything would be better. They will…after one last sip. Self and addiction become one, identity is lost - compulsion and addiction consume it.
