"The Thrill" as written by and Peter Leo Rickard Wichers....
Watch me now!

Gave in for the moment
A lifetime of thrills
Paid up to deserve it
Made up with my pills
(Now will you ever learn!)
And make it all just turn

An ironic pattern
A foolish will
A sweet reputation
A passion to kill
(Falling down again!)
And feel the core getting chilled

How it lies, a twisted device
Giving you up ten times
Stop the search and you will find

And dismantle the thrill!

Hunting for closure
(But) the story goes on
A cancer that bleeds
Won't leave 'til you're done
(Like streams of broken glass!)
Passing through your veins

Obsessed with obsession
Corroded from guilt
Such a drag of progression
The tears getting spilled
(Now will you ever learn!)
And make it all just turn

How it lies, a twisted device
Giving you up ten times
Stop the search and you will find
How it lies, a twisted device
Filling you up to deny
Stop the search and you will find


I'm playing alone and will master
Talking to myself and will find out
I'm playing alone and will master
Talking to myself

I'm playing alone and will master
Talking to myself and will find out
How to retain ever after
The pain, the sound, the bottomless game I was taught

How it lies, a twisted device
Giving you up ten times
Stop the search and you will find
How it lies, a twisted device
Filling you up to deny
Stop the search and you will find

And dismantle the thrill!

    Song MeaningAlmost certainly about drugs. "Giving you up ten times" I am pretty sure is a reference to morphine or heroine, which releases 10 times the amount of endorphines you can get from eating food/doing other pleasurable things.
