"Addicted to Pain" as written by Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall....
Tell me how it feels to live a lie
Tell me do you know that it won't ever be the same
You can't deny, the house of cards just hit the floor
Don't tell me you can save it in the end
There's nothing you can do
'Cause when it's gone, you know it won't come back again
But you don't listen anymore

You're addicted to pain
Too blind to see you're lost in the shadows
So addicted to face
In time you're gonna lose it all

If only I had said this long ago
If only I had found a way to tell you all the things you should've known
But you were lost right from the start
How the hell are you the one to blame
You've done no wrong, you gave it all
So why the hell did you have to change
You broke your back, she broke your heart

You're addicted to pain
Too blind to see you're lost in the shadows
So addicted to face
In time you're gonna lose it all

Cry out
You're nowhere now
She sold you out
You're gonna lose it all

Cry out
You're nowhere now
Just tear it down
You're gonna lose it all

You're addicted to pain
Too blind to see you're lost in the shadows
So addicted to face
In time you're gonna lose it all

You're addicted to pain
Sometimes it seems like nothing else matters
You're too addicted to face
In time you're gonna lose it all

Cry out
You're nowhere now
In time you're gonna lose it all
Cry out
You're nowhere now
You don't live it anymore

Cry out
You're nowhere now
In time you're gonna lose it all
Cry out
You're nowhere now
You don't live it anymore

    My OpinionPersonally, I think it's a guy telling his best friend "Look dude, this girl is doing you wrong over and over and over, why do you keep holding on to this relationship.?" Basically the story of my year, 2013...I keep going back to her, I keep bending over for her, I keep breaking my back for her as the lyrics say and all she does is break my heart...stop worrying about what everyone would say, stop worrying about life without her...saving face...and tell that chick to kick rocks already! (which I finally did!!!)

    General CommentI think it's about when someone is physically hurting themselves and they just can't seem to move on from their sadness and to continue through life. "You're addicted to pain Too blind to see you're lost in the shadows"

    General CommentI think it's about drugs, as in a guy gave his whole life away to drugs, and became totally addicted, while others around him, such as friends, realize he has lost everything. The line "you broke your back, she broke your heart" I personally interpret as he has given everything for the drug, but the drug just completely destroyed him.
