"One More Addiction" as written by Natalie Jane Imbruglia, David Munday and Phil Thornalley....
First the good news
It's gonna feel very nice
Then the bad news
You gotta pay a heavy price
Rip tide,we slide we ride on a deep forbidden sea
Under we go-so slow
And you're hanging onto me
And I say
Oh oh one more addiction in my world
Oh one more connection to let go
Oh floating down the river
out of sight forever (from my world)
It's the only thing I know how to do
I reject you
But I can't follow through
I'd forget you
Bud you'd end up tappin' on my back door
Somehow I lost myself
In a tunnel long and black
Somewhere,at the end,I pretend
There's a way of turning back
Take a breath
Let it out
All the things you frown about are meaningless of course,unless you're
doing this for real I guess
I meant to to but
I don't know what
Is in the way and could I say
It's you in bet
I won't forget
Maybe I'm not ready yet

    General CommentI really like this song the meaning is obvious but I like the line "Take a breath, let it out,
    All the things you frown about are meaningless of course" I love that it's about drug addiction.

    General CommentMaybe... I think it could also be about being addicted to someone ese. Maybe about numerous addictions, a guy, drugs, etc. Love the song!

    General CommentI think it's about a drug habit. Either she got someone else into it or they got her into it, but either way, they can't kick the habit. She knows there are consequences such as losing connections to her life before addiction, but the draw to the high is too strong. The end portion (take a breath...) kind of seems like something you'd say when you're high - it's basically gibberish but appears like it contains some deep meaning.

    General CommentWhile this could quite possibly be about actual substance abuse, I tend to think it follows the trend of most of the album and is about a toxic relationship. I have some experience with this particular topic and also if anyone watched the later seasons of Angel, the relationship Wesley had with that evil lawyer chick is a rough example of what i am about to explain...

    Its a relationship where there is no real love, but more of an addiction to each other and like a drug, you begin to lose yourself to it, you neglect your family and friends and you find your life is no longer recognizable. Everything seems to be like you are living in a semi-surreal dream that is quickly turning into a nightmare where you are drowning in this crazy mixed up world like a rip tide that keeps carrying you farther off the beaten path. Eventually you find that you have gone so far over the edge that you doubt you could ever go back to the way things were, but you lie to yourself, telling yourself that you can stop any time and everything will be fine . You try to break free of the person but you can't help yourself, you just keep going back for more. In a relationship like this you find yourself doing things you wouldn't normally do, which actually can lead to real drug use if you aren't careful.

    This description is of something that happened to me so the song feels for me like a retelling of what i went through in the winter of 2000-2001
