Lyrics

My Friend Addiction

Written By: Greedy White Citizens

I'm hurting, overcome with desire.
I'm so tired, put out the fire
I can't deal with all this confliction
I can't say goodbye to my friend addiction,

You've locked your chains

I'm torn apart in this game,
I'm feelin all the shame
I'm tired of fighting the day
I try but its all the same
I can't get ahead of the pain
I need someone to show me the way

Have you ever wished that you
Could be somebody else?
Dreamt of wearing someone else's shoes,
Take back this pair that I've been dealt,
Tired of living my whole life
With so much hate towards you to feel
It's time to reveal what's concealed

I'm torn apart in this game,
I'm feelin all the shame
I'm tired of fighting the day
I try but its all the same
I can't get ahead of the pain
I need someone to show me the way

I'm so torn,
Give me more

I'm torn apart in this game,
I'm feelin all the shame
I'm tired of fighting the day
I try but its all the same
I can't get ahead of the pain
I need someone to show me the way

I'm locked in the chains of this prison unseen
Inside my head set me free.
