"Love And Addiction" as written by Adam Duritz, David Bryson, Martin Jones, Toby Hawkins and Lydia Holly....
Put on your bad self
Get out your party dress and fix up your makeup try
To make a good impression this is a new world
Were all the same here, well maybe not the same you know what I mean.
I've got everything that you want I've got everything and someday Ill be president.
I've for everything that you want
I've got everything except the single thing you really need.
Separate, love from addiction its not the same I know
I see desperation pulling my strings. Hey Eliza now what do you want?
I play piano and I sing like a humming bird and oh I forgot
That humming birds don't sing, it doesn't matter really you know what I mean.
I've got everything that you want I've got everything
And its a brand new world eliza. I've got everything that you want
I've got everything except the single thing you really need.
Sail away blood and rejection ..they isolate.

I know I see, a generation staring back at me..
Wasted away
Wasted my time this picture you see is nothing like the one
I wanted painted of me.
"Eliza says it's all right with me, if your sure
It wouldn't be the first time, you know it's happened a couple of times before
And.. I don't even expect much anymore and anyway
It's not as if I was waiting for you to come and make it all okay".
Shut away to to wing blood and rejection they isolate
I know I see visions of people grabbing hold of me.
Wasted away, wasted my time
This picture you see is nothing like the one I wanted painted of me.
Put on your bad self, get out your party dress and fix up your makeup try
And make a good impression..

    General CommentIt's more of the Adam and Elisabeth saga. He's reached a point of realizing that it's not Elisabeth he really wants ... he's just addicted to having her. So much of his time has been codependent on what she's doing that now he just doesn't know what to do. He learns to seperate love from addiction because love is eternal and addiction is damaging.

    General CommentHow can there be no comments on this song? It is amazing. After I downloaded it, it was all I could listen to for weeks. They should really release it

    General Commenti think its about him going out and having a good time, and having sex... and then fooling himself that it is love. and deep down he knows that it means nothing, but he just wants to ignore it, and doesnt really care.
    some parts he's is trying to convince this woman that it could be love, and that he's a good catch... then towards the end he accepts that it was just fun, and he's saying "i deserve it, i knew it all along" sort of thing... and so he decides to just fuck it and go and have a good time again.

    General CommentNo released most likely cause it barely sounds like cc.

    I think it is about a girl that is infatuated with him and is blinded by it, sees all these things she likes and wants, but what she really needs isnt there. She is blinded by infatuations and believes it to be love, and is addicted to this image shes made of him.
