"It's so bad it's got to be good
Mysterious girl misunderstood
Dressed like a wedding cake"

Why try and run away"

It's so euphoric
No matter what they say"
No matter what they say, the drug is euphoric
It all matches, and Anthony has a habit of writing about his drug use
its like a totally amazing song tho
