He wasn't interested in getting to the other side.

In fact he has no idea how he got there.

When he woke up in the morning he definately had no plans of going there.

He had sworn off so many times. 

But here he was once again.

To his utter devastation.

And to the dismay of everyone around him.

How many addicts does it take to change a lightbulb? 

100 (of course!).

The first 99 get flustered and run away to escape.

Untill one comes along and lights up the path for everyone else...

 Only one, But he has to change it every day.
!אנא עבדא דקודשא בריך הוא

וּבְיָדְךָ כֹּחַ וּגְבוּרָה וּבְיָדְךָ לְגַדֵּל וּלְחַזֵּק לַכֹּל

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...
