Spoken:

-Alright, this next one's called 'Addictions', uh...
-I got lots of addictions, I love this song!
-Hahaha, fuckin' right. Don't we all?

Sung:
Sammy was a betting man who's money always running thin,
He never thinks to save a dime. And when he's good up for,
He'll rob the closest liquor store, if he don't get caught
Well then it ain't no crime!

It ain't no crime

Well Sammy moved to Reno with his best friend Tino who only
Says his prayers in the best of casinos. But sam was down
On his luck, he took Tino's truck. A case of grand theft
Auto in the case of Nevada, that's for sure. There
Ain't no cuuuuure, he'll do it again, like he's done it
Before.

Well everybody's got their addictions, and if you
Listen hard you'll see: That everyone who lives
Beneath the sun discovers something that they need.
Now we all have our different problems, but there
Are those who still pretend... That it's okay, but
To each of them I say: Well nah, you better think
Again

And it goes

(Riff x4)

Danny works a nine-to-five, wears a fancy suit and tie,
But the only thing that keeps him sane... Is the comfort
Of the local bar, he thinks of last call, just one
More drink to numb the paaaiin.

Oooooooooh, we all got pain

He's got himself a ball-and-chain, who smokes a pack a day
Since she was nearly age 13. A nicotine fiend if you know what
I mean, now she's yellin' at the kids for smokin' all that
Weed.

Well don't get angry, don't you use brute force, I know
My stories almost set the trial off course. But I don't
Lie, and I don't mean to sound dramatic, but my my
Sound's fuckin' hotter than your upstaiors attic there's
A will, there's a way, for the people of today livin'
A lifetime on the bottom of a cruel society. Stay strong
And know right from wrong. Back to the riff that goes...

(Riff x4)

Sammy planned his get away, and he was on his way to
Tijuana, Mexico. His luck, he thought, was on his
Side as he drove Tino's ride but little did he know
That drunk drivin' with one eye closed was Danny
Comin' the other way on a dogged-up road. He hit
The breaks, it was way too late, and the collision
Killed them both.

Well Danny leaves his wife a widow, dressed in black
And Sammy leaves his life for trying to gamble in
Stacks. Sad but true, oh what are you gonna do when
It's way too late for turning back?

Well everybody's got their addictions, and if you
Listen hard you'll see: That everyone who lives
Beneath the sun discovers something that they need.
Now we all have our different problems, but there
Are those who still pretend... That nothing's wrong,
But if you wait too long, it'll kill you in the end,

Ooooooooooohh
