"Addicted To Bass" as written by Cristiano Spiller, Roger Troutman and Larry Troutman....
got two pale hands up against the window pane
I'm shaking with the heat of my need again
It starts in my feet, reverbs up to my brain
There's nothing I can do to revert the gain
I'm looking down to the street below
There's nothing in the way they move to show
They too, know what I knew
They too hunger for the beast below
Listening to the radio I feel so out of place
There's a certain something missing that the treble can't erase
I know you can tell just by looking at my face
A word about my weakness

I'm totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

(Wow woah ho)

There's nothing I can do to be cool
I don't sleep 'til I've had my fuel
It frustrates if I am deprived
A hunger that grates from deep inside
I feel like I'm doing time
Imprisoned by dependence on a rhythm sublime
In my mind I must overcome the need to define
The solitary silence of a faceless crime

Standing by the stereo I'm feeling so alone
My back against a speaker and I'm moving on my own
Surrounded by so many and they're staring at my face
They're picking up my problem

I'm totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Wow woah ho
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It's filling up my mind

Sunrise at my window, I look down on the street
People I see everywhere are tapping their feet
Suddenly I realise in a look that I was wrong
Everybody's groovin' to their own song
Down at the scene below
There's something in the way they move to show
They too, know what I know
They too hunger for the beast below

Rhythm's running over me to wash away my fears
The backbeat of humanity it sweetens my tears
There's something that's connected us down throughout the years
No need to feel so lonely, everyone's addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Everyone's addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Your bassline
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It's filling up my mind
Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Your bassline
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It's filling up my mind...

    General Commentthis song is called Addicted To Bass, not Totally Addicted To Bass. This makes it very annoying when searching for it.

    General CommentSubmitted that by accident; the song is about doing base (a pure, putty form of speed). Bassline = line of base, it's pretty clever!

    General Commentif it's about doing base... I don't understand what they mean by "There's something that's connected us down throughout the years
    No need to feel so lonely, everyone's addicted to bass Everyone's addicted to bass"

    To me, I just think it's about music and how it has the ability to make people feel so great it's as if they feel, in a sense, high.

    General Commenttiedtothetracks what you said about it being about music is partially right but what they mean by "No need to feel so lonely, everyone's addicted to bass Everyone's addicted to bass" is when your taking bass you talk so much so if your taking it your talking to everyone and not lonely

    General CommentI quite like the speed interpretation, possibly because I like treble.
