  • You are a drug to me
    I never ever thought it otherwise

    And I love the lies you've told to me
    While looking me directly in my eyes

    This is not ecstasy, but it's better than cocaine.
    And you know that I will miss you when you're gone
    But I'm not equipped to play this game

    You know your words
    They don't mean anything to me
    They only serve to fatten up the prey

    And when it's time to take them to the slaughterhouse
    You slice their throats, continue on your way
    This is not jeopardy
    And it's not your high school prom
    And you know that I will miss you when you're gone
    But I'm not equipped to be your mom

    You are a drug to me
    I never ever thought it otherwise
    And I love the lies you've told to me
    While looking me directly in my eyes
