Added DiffLines:

* Gustav Mahler's symphonic song cycle ''The Song of the Earth'' opens with the massive "Drinking Song of Earthly Woe". The chorus is "Life is dark, death is dark", and we drink to forget that life is full of woe, and then we die. The cycle also contains a more upbeat ode to intoxication, "The Drunkard in Spring":
-->If life is but a dream,
-->why work and worry?
-->I drink until I no more can,
-->the whole, blessed day!

* The Music/RubaiyatOfOmarKhayyam. From the Le Gallienne translation:
-->''Drunkards! So be it, yet if all were wise,''
-->''All would be drunk like us, with dreaming eyes:''
-->''Poor sober world, so doleful all the day,''
-->''Leave mosque and mart, and join our Paradise.''
-->''There are no sorrows wine cannot allay,''
-->''There are no sins wine cannot wash away,''
-->''There are no riddles wine knows not to read,''
-->''There are no debts wine is too poor to pay.''

Added DiffLines:

* "My Medicine," by Music/ThePrettyReckless. The singer is strung out on something, possibly given the name a prescription drug. It's ambiguous but it doesn't seem that the singer considers it a positive experience.

When I roll up the blunt, that's skunk\\
See me in your town with the pounds of the haze\\

* Way too many FolkMetal songs to cover here, with (as mentioned above) Korpiklaani being a major offender. They have at least one song about drinking on each album and pretty much all with only Korven Kuningas, their fifth studio album, having no song that have to do with drinking. Also, Manala only contains a song that's only partially about drinking, since it's about witchcraft and making someone eat, as the title says, "Soil of the corpse" which seems to be slipped into their drink. And the lyrics only mention drinking in passing, with more focus being on the witchcraft.
