"Satisfied" as written by and Sylvia Ekwutosi Powell....
Should i be safe at home
A stronger man who really should know
Better than to reach the edge and
Try to fight this on my own

Can i be something i have yet
To see in my close friends
They've all lost their heads
And it's bringing me down
To the place where i'm supposed to...be
Responsibly, for now

I want it, i need it, just one more to satisfy
Can't help it, feel nothing and nothing feels right

Should i be safe at home
I relapse quicker than you could know
My past compulsions breed convulsions
A sorry scene unfolds

Can i be weak when I'm stable
Strong in the cradle
Strung out in a fable

    General Commenti think it's kinda obvious that this is about an addiction, you think?

    General Commenttrasta, I totally agree. His addiction destroyed him, leaving him reaching for the drug, it sounds like he tried to get over it before, he says he should know better than to reach the edge, but he gets there anyway. He relapses into his habit and his humanity is destroyed. He can't even find anything civilized inside of himself. The song is clearly about an addiction. When he gets the drug, though, he feels nothing.... which leads me to believe that his drug of choice was heroin, because once heroin is treated with methadone, it no longer affects the body when taken. In short: this song is about a man who destroyed himself with heroin.
