"B3" as written by Steve Forrest, William Lloyd, Brian Molko and Stefan Olsdal....
I refuse to remain in regrets
To pander like a slave to your wants
No contrition from me will you get
No submission to dilettantes (No)

I've existed too long in secrets
I have lived like a man confined
Epicene and elaborate
Fatalistic and resigned (No)

Passionflower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

Now I vein in the scene of sunsets
And the rain washes clean my mind
Every one of my needs will be met
Every planet will be aligned

Passionflower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

Over power all my fear
Now to power
Guide me through the realm

I refuse to remain in regret
I refuse to be left behind (No)

Passionflower
Catherine wheel
Higher power
Help me start to heal

    General CommentThis song sounds like spiritual metamorphosis, which I think is going to be the highlight of the album's meaning.
    Passionflower is used for medicinal purposes, namely, narcotic withdrawl and generalized anxiety.
    I think he's talking about the difficulty and triumph of sobriety.

    General CommentCatherine wheel also refers to a method of torture, i.e. breaking on the wheel. It's called the Catherine wheel because of the legend of St. Catherine, who was supposed to be executed by breaking on the wheel, but when she touched the wheel, it miraculously fell to pieces. The wikipedia article on this is pretty good, if you care to cross-reference further.

    As for the title of the song itself, Vitamin B3, otherwise known as niacin, is an important dietary need covered by most people's regular food intake. Though it's rare in industrialized nations, it's possible to become niacin deficient and develop a condition called pellagra. From, again, wikipedia, here are some of the psychiatric effects of pellagra (horrible physical consequences completely aside): "irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy, and depression." Alcoholics are among the very small group of people in developed countries who may become niacin deficient.

    In other words, I would be very surprised if bellyfloor wasn't right about the meaning of this song.
