Album: This Addiction (2010)
  • Lyrically, the themes of This Addiction were influenced by the band 's personal lives. Singer and guitarist Matt Skiba explained to Spinner UK: "A couple of us have gone through some pretty serious life changes. We had a good friend of ours pass away since the last record."
    He added that in the case of this song, "that was really influenced by the film Blue Velvet but it's a metaphor for someone and something else. Everything on the record is stuff that definitely hits close to home for us and we tried to communicate that in the songs."
