"Kingdom Of Welcome Addiction" as written by and Chris Corner....
Do you remember your coming down
Forced to take sides?
Your taunted charm and your broken smile
Touched me unexpectedly

So long
So long you've waited in line
Desire is a gift in life
So long
So long you've left and arrived
It's time for you to stay a while

If you chose life
You know what the fear is like if
You welcome addiction
This is your kingdom

Your fight for power
For memories, answers and signs
Will bring you through the dark to light
Clear and redefined

Too long
Too long I waste for these
Emotionally sucking life
Too long
Too long, you waste and right
It's time for you to recognize

If you chose life
You know what the fear is like if
You welcome addiction
This is your kingdom

If you chose life
You know what the fear is like if
You welcome addiction
This is your kingdom

    My Interpretationthis interpretation is for "Kingdom Of Welcome Addiction" only.
    not really sure why "Tear Garden" is lumped in here.
    what i get from KOWA is empowerment through the sacrifice of long
    standing friendships. The recognition of the harsh realities in life.
    & letting go of "story book" ideals in order to live for yourself.
    xo,

    My InterpretationWhen first hearing the song I thought that "addiction"-stuff could be taken literally, as if the song is about someone who was addicted to something for a long time and somehow fought his way out, or is still fighting. It could be an actual addiction to drugs, or perhaps to a certain person or whatever.
    The "if you chose life"-lines sound to me as if someone experienced a life-or-death-situation, perhaps has been suicidal, and now has to live with some kind of fear (caused by the addiction?) and has to deal with it.

    My InterpretationMy interpretation is that this is about depression and suicide.

    "If you chose life,
    You know what the fear is like.".
    Choosing life is no easy task for a person with depression, fearing they may lose the will to go on.

    "If you welcome addiction,
    This is your kingdom."
    Depression can feel like an addiction to feeling sad. But, so many people are touched by it, that it's not like you don't belong. It's your kingdom to share with others like you.

    "Your fight for power,
    For memories, answers and signs,
    Will bring you through the dark to light,
    Clear and redefined."
    The constant fight for the will to go on, for memories of reasons to live, or for something to come and give a good reason to go on in signs. All a person needs to 'choose life' is simply something to live for.

    That being said. I really love this song.
