Addicted to Pain

Verse 1

{Just} tell me how it feels to live a lie
{Just} tell me do you know that it won't ever be the same, you can't deny
Your house of cards just hit the floor

Verse 2

Don't tell me you can save it in the end
There's nothing you can do
Cause when it's gone, you know it won't come back again
But you don't listen anymore

Chorus

You're addicted to pain
Too blind to see you're lost in the shadows
You're so addicted to face
In time, you're gonna lose it all

Verse 3

If only I had said this long ago
If only I had found a way to tell you all the things you should've known
But you were lost right from the start

Verse 4

How the hell are you the one to blame?
You've done no wrong, you gave it all
So why the hell did you have to change?
You broke your back, she broke your heart

Chorus

You're addicted to pain
Too blind to see you're lost in the shadows
You're so addicted to face
In time, you're gonna lose it all

Bridge

Cry out
You know it now
Just tear it down
You're gonna lose it all

Chorus

You're addicted to pain
Too blind to see you're lost in the shadows
You're so addicted to face
In time, you're gonna lose it all

Chorus
(alt.)

You're addicted to pain
Sometimes it seems like nothing else matters
You're so addicted to face
In time, you're gonna lose it all
