An album cut from the debut Darkness album Permission to Land
, "Givin' Up" is about lead singer Justin Hawkins
' heroin problem. It's not subtle. Hawkins sings:
"I'd inject into my eyes if there was nowhere else to stick my skag" (a skag is a heroin needle).
"Gimme, gimme, gimme that smack."
Hawkins soon moved on to cocaine and predictably, became so unpredictable he could no longer function in the group. In 2006, he quit the band, splitting them up until 2011.
