Addicted To Pain

  • Tell me how it feels to live a lie
    Tell me do you know that it won't ever be the same
    You can't deny, the house of cards just hit the floor
    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

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

    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
    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

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

    Cry out
    You're nowhere now
    She sold you out
    You're gonna lose it all

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

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

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

    Cry out
    You're nowhere now
    In time you're gonna lose it all
    Cry out
    You're nowhere now
    You don't live it anymore

    Cry out
    You're nowhere now
    In time you're gonna lose it all
    Cry out
    You're nowhere now
    You don't live it anymore Writer/s: MARK TREMONTI, MYLES KENNEDY, SCOTT PHILLIPS
