One sip
Of your poison
Just one fix
I'm walking out the door.

I can't do this any more.

Oooooh but the Devils
calling me by name.

Oh It's so inviting,
I can never win this game.

The cycle is vicious
It never remisses

Bittersweet renditions,
Of the time I had it beat (?)

Fooling myself

too many times,

How much shame is on me?

Can't you see I'm grounded?
Weighed down by my heavy heart?

Not long before
I figure out what's coming next.

You got what I want
(You got what I need)
Can't stop holding on
(I love our toxicity)

Caught up
(In our lust)
With no chemistry
(Can't stop holding on)
I love our toxic energy.

Around and round we go
(I start to wonder)
where did our love go?

She's in my veins
(Ooh I'm an addict)
Shooting up her perfume
the one habit I can't break
I won't shake

Over, under, in-between
(Stuck under your nail)
Give me
just a moment with your scent
I love the smell.

*Im fading away
Addiction, personification
