Addicted to Chaos

Album: Youthanasia (1994)
  • Only yesterday they told me you were gone
    All these normal people, will I find another one?
    Monkey on my back, aching in my bones
    I forgot you said one day you'll walk alone
    I said I need you, does that make me wrong?
    Am I a weak man, are you feeling strong?
    My heart was blackened, it's bloody red
    A hole in my heart, a hole in my head!

    Who will help me up?
    Where's the helping hand?
    Will you turn on me?
    Is this my final stand?

    In a dream I cannot see
    Tangled abstract fallacy
    Random turmoil builds in me
    I'm addicted, addicted to chaos

    Light shined on my path
    Turn bad days into good
    Turn breakdowns into blocks,
    I smashed 'em 'cause I could
    My brain was labored, my head would spin
    Don't let me down, don't give up, don't give in
    The rain comes down, cold wind blows
    The plans we made are back up on the road
    Turn up my collar, welcome the unknown
    Remember that you said
    One day you'll walk alone

    Who will help me up?
    Where's the helping hand?
    Will you turn on me?
    Is this my final stand?

    In a dream I cannot see
    Tangled abstract fallacy
    Random turmoil builds in me
    I'm addicted to chaos

    Who will help me up?
    Where's the helping hand?
    Will you turn on me?
    Is this my final stand?

    In a dream I cannot see (in a dream I cannot see)
    Tangled abstract fallacy (tangled abstract fallacy)
    Random turmoil builds in me (random turmoil builds in me)
    Bills bills bills
    In a dream I cannot see (in a dream I cannot see)
    Tangled abstract fallacy (tangled abstract fallacy)
    Random turmoil builds in me (random turmoil builds in me)
    I'm addicted, addicted to the chaos
    Addicted, addicted, to chaos, chaos
