"I'm not an addict" as written by Sarah Bettens and Gert Bettens....
Oohoo (19x)

Breath it in and breath it out

and pass it on it's almost out

We're so creative and so much more

We're high above but on the floor

Chorus1: It's not a habit it's cool

I feel alive

If you don't have it your on

the other side

The deeper you stick it in your vein

The deeper the thoughts there's no more pain

I'm in heaven I'm a god

I'm everywhere I feel so hot

Chorus2: It's not a habit, it's cool

I feel alive

If you don't have it your on

the other side

I'm not an addict (maybe that's a lie)

Oohoo (8x)

It's over now, I'm cold, alone

I'm just a person on my own

Nothing means a thing to me

Oh, nothing means a thing to me

Chorus2

Free me, leave me

Watch me as I'm going down

Free me, see me

Look at me I'm falling

And I'm falling.........

It is not a habit, it is cool

I feel alive I feel.......

It is not a habit, it is cool

I feel alive

Chorus2

I'm not an addict, I'm not an addict, I'm not an addict.

    General CommentI am addicted to this song! This song to me means maybe the writer knew someone or was addicted herself and goes through the denial and the excuses. I'm not an addict myself, and I never have been, fortunately, but this song is so passionate and beautiful.

    General CommentThat song is -definitely- an anti-drugs song. "It's over now, I'm cold, alone. I'm just a person on my own. Nothing means a thing to me..." it's how the drugs take over the addicts' lives until the point that their life resolve around, and everything that isn't a drug or related to it ("If you don't have it you're on the other side") is being pushed away.

    General CommentThis song is definitely an anti-drugs song. It may be beautiful, but just like a post-high, it leaves you feeling all cold and alone.

    General CommentIt's an anti-drug song, if it's not then it's neither. The song is only about what she and other drug users go/went through when they went through withdrawal. No where in the song is she saying go do drugs or don't use drugs. Depends on how you receive it. But in my opinion she wrote it to say, "Hey, coming down off this waste of money sucks." To me it's an anti-drug song. Jamming a needle in my arm to relieve pain temporarly and later being cold and alone when you withdraw doesn't sound attractive to me.

    General CommentIts simply saying that drugs get you so high, and you feel so free, that you really get into an intense denial of being an addict. you say it's a habit, at most. that you could quit at any time. slowly you realize that you're lying to yourself because you only love drugs when you;re on them anymore, not when you're clean and sober as well.

    General Commentmy friends found this resonated with addictions beyond drugs.. bulimia for example. i didn't think of it that way until she said this to me.

    General CommentDudes, the surface meaning is about drugs, but....call me a romantic, but it applies just as well to love. Try to tell me you can't feel that way about a person. Metaphors, think metaphors.
