The Lyrics

Your lights are on, but no one's home.
Your mind has a will of its own.
Your palm sweats. Your body shakes.
Another fight is what it takes.
You tend to freak
When life is neat.
There's no doubt you're in deep.
You don't see why
She makes you leave.
Another fight is all you need.
Whoa you like to think that you're in control. Oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say ya
Can't get enough, you know, you're
Gonna have to face it you're addicted to abuse.
Friends see the signs, but you won't heed.
Going back to what you need.
She's changed her mind
And lets you in.
Another fight. Denial wins.
Your head spins
Your conscience screams.
You can't win.
Or so it seems.
Co-dependant, bipolar, too.
A healthy life escapes you.
Whoa you like to think that you're in control. Oh yeah.
It's closer to the truth to say
Ya can't get enough ya know you're
Gonna have to face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.
The lights are on, but no one's home.
Your mind is all but gone.
You dial her up. She wants you back.
Common sense you seem to lack.
Whoa you like to think that you're in control. Oh yeah.
It's closer to the truth to say
Ya can't get enough ya know you're
Gonna have to face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.
Might as well face it you're addicted to abuse.

very well-paced, and personally meaningful I take it - great work, carmen - 555
Agrimorfee - September 09, 2005 - Report this comment
It maybe heartfelt, Stu, but I have to point out this was poorly constructed. I mean, gee, the title refrain doesn't match the pace one bit. And it relies too much on the OS lyrics.
Mr. Critic - September 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Not very well paced. You can't substitute a two-syllable word (abuse) for a one-syllable word (love). I'm gonna have to agree with Agrimorfee here.
Yet Another Dutchman - September 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Oh, it paced sufficiently to sing along for a bit. But I think the original's lyrics could have been put to better use with more jokes. And I'm not volume-fixated. Mr. Critic, you CAN pace a two-syllable word on the original's one-syllable word, you can even pace a three-syllable word on a one-syllable word. It just depends on the pronunciation in TOS.

YAD, that's not entirely true. I'm sure you could mismatch the syllables in a song that treats a one-syllable word as two syllables, or vice-a-versa, but if you try to do that in a song that DOESN'T do that, like this one, then it ain't gonna work out. It'll screw everything up. I'm afraid Mr. Critic and Agrimorfee are correct.
