Lately, I
Have been speculating
As to how and why
These circles race whatever I do
Your blonde hair
Breaks this ten thousand yard stare
Clearly, I
Am still withdrawing it�s true

(ahh ahh ahh)
Somethings not right here
The paint watches me as I dry here
The pain watches me as I waltz through
This black hole
And I don't feel violent
In fact I feel some way enlightened
The best parts of us
Always seem to have the most downfalls

There's a cigarette in my mouth
A nicotine patch is on the floor
When did we get addicted to the cure?
Ahh ah ahh
Ahh ahh
I am addicted to the cure!

Sometimes, I
Get aggravated
With my concept of time
And how the clocks tick backwards on cue
Your blonde hair
Breaks this wristwatch and it's cares
Clearly I
Am still withdrawing from you

(ahh ahh ahh)
Somethings not right here
The paint watches me as I dry here
The pain watches me as I waltz through
This black hole
And I don't feel violent
In fact I feel some way enlightened
The best parts of us
Always seem to have the most downfalls

There's a cigarette in my mouth
And nicotine patches on the floor
When did we get addicted?
When did we get addicted?
But our heads tell us to stop
As our chests scream out for more

I'm proud to be addicted
I'm proud to be addicted to the cure

I am addicted to the cure
I am addicted to the cure

I am addicted to the cure

    General Commentmatthew murphy (lead singer or the wombats) took anti depressants for a while, and being 'addicted to the cure' could mean that he is addicted to this fake happiness he is receiving. the anti depressants are helping him but it's a fake happiness, he can't stop taking them because it makes him happy, yet it is damaging him in the long term. this is probably me doing too much research but I see a connection idk
