"Addictive" as written by and Ayalah Deborah/armstrong Bentovim....
Chorus:
Change around the words that you say,
to suit me fine.

Maxi Jazz:
Predictable behavior
I crave ya
I'm driving y'all
My own is living save yeah,
Sometimes I hate ya
But I'm whipped
Being gone head down to the crypt
Restricted like a conscript
You loved to bully
I placed the blame with you
Fully...
Chorus:
Change around the words that you say,
to suit me fine.
Make them mine...

Maxi Jazz:
Don't panic
There is only we too left on the planet
I can explain..
I know it happened again, It's manic
I'm standing in the flame, trying to fan it
You don't know what you've got till it's gone
And by the edge of the night,
you nobody belong through this ad joint.
And that's what you cut. (2x)

Chorus / Background:
Change around the words that you say,
to suit me fine.
Make them mine...
Listen to the voice of your head,
It makes no sense,
Take a rest...

Maxi Jazz:
I'm addicted..

I have a demon for a wife
He delights in your pretty face and he hates my life
Takes notes on how to provoke past grief
Makes my teeth decay with the last of my self believe
Feed all day from underneath
Like a fief, I left weak, barely able to speak
I seek nothing but constant supply
I can read every look in your eyes
I leave with a lie
Maybe our love will never die
Or, maybe it's the last time I make you cry
Make my appeal like the condemned.
Let's go away for the weekend
Your life I will steal and descend with it into the pig.

I'm addicted..
Chorus:
Change around the words that you say,
to suit me fine.

Maxi Jazz:
I'm addicted..

Chorus:
Listen to the voice of your head,
It makes no sense..
Take a rest...

Maxi Jazz:
I'm addicted.. (5x)
I have a little problem
I have a demon for a wife
He delights in your pretty face and he hates my life
Takes notes on how to provoke past grief
Makes my teeth decay with the last of my self believe

Chorus:
Change around the words that you say,
to suit me fine.
Make them mine...

Maxi Jazz:
I'm addicted.. (7x)

Chorus:
Listen to the voice of your head,
It makes no sense..
Take a rest...

    General CommentThis is a wonderful song! I think it captures the essence of a relationship gone bad: the deceipt, twisting of words, the ability to put down the other person and make someone miserable, giving false hopes... all this that has become a habbit (although torturous), to the point where one feels addicted to the relationship.

    General CommentMaxi Jazz is a phenominal lyricist/poet. he defies the conventional rap formula and truly speaks his poetry over trance club beats. Faithless deviates somewhat form their normal club constraints in this choon, but Maxi Jazz never fails to impress.

    i particularly enjoy this lyric:

    I have a demon for a wife
    He delights in your pretty face and he hates my life
    Takes notes on how to provoke past grief
    Makes my teeth decay with the last of my self belief

    Mr. Jazz's words and analogies are filled with such passion and imagery that even seemingly mundane topics (Insomnia!) are given new life.

    be sure to check out his work with 1 Giant Leap, the project of Faithless offshoot Jamie Catto.

    General CommentOh. I think these are the real lyrics:

    "I'm at the edge of the night
    where nobody belongs.
    And that's what you get." (That might be "cut" instead of "get".)

    and

    "Let's go away for the weekend
    Your life I will steal and descend with it into the pit"

    General CommentMy corrections:

    "Predictable behavior,
    I crave ya
    I'm driven
    you're my only living savior.
    Sometimes I hate ya
    But I'm whipped
    Being led head down to the crypt"

    ...
    "And by the edge of the night,
    where nobody belong,
    fingers are drumming...
    And that's where you come in."
    ...
    "I lead with a lie"
    ...
    and it's "self-BELIEF", not "believe"

    Lyric CorrectionHere's a complete re-write of the lyrics as I think they should read:

    Chorus:
    Change around the words that you say,
    To suit me fine.

    Maxi Jazz:
    Predictable behavior,
    I crave ya,
    I'm driven,
    You're my only livin' saviour.
    Sometimes I hate ya,
    But I'm whipped,
    Being led head down to the crypt.
    Restricted like a conscript,
    You love to bully,
    I place the blame with you,
    Fully.

    Chorus:
    Change around the words that you say,
    To suit me fine...
    Make them mine.

    Maxi Jazz
    Don't panic,
    There's only we two left on the planet.
    I can explain...
    I know it happened again,
    It's manic,
    I'm standing in the flame try 'na fan it!
    You don't know what you got 'til it's gone,
    I'm at the edge of the night,
    Where nobody belong,
    Fingers are drum'n',
    And that's where you come. (And that's there you come)

    Chorus
    Change around the words that you say,
    To suit me fine,

    Make them mine.
    Listen to the voice in your head,
    It makes no sense,
    Take a rest.
    (I'm addicted)
    (I'm addicted)

    Maxi Jazz:
    I have a daemon for a wife,
    He delights in your pretty face and he hates my life.
    Takes notes on how to provoke past grief,
    Makes my teeth decay with the last of my self belief!
    Feed all day from underneath,
    Like a thief,
    I'm left weak,
    Barely able to speak.
    I seek nothing but constant supply,
    I can read every look in your eye.
    I lead with a lie:
    "Maybe our love will never die."
    Or,
    "Maybe it's the last time I make you cry." (haha!)
    Make my appeal like the condemned:
    "Let's go away for the weekend!"
    Your life I will steal and descend with it into the pit. (I'm addicted)


    Chorus:
    Change around the words that you say...
    To suit me fine... (I'm addicted)

    Chorus:
    Listen to the voice of your head,
    It makes no sense.
    Take a rest.
    (I'm addicted)
    (I'm addicted)
    (I'm addicted) (Chorus singer: I'm addicted!)
    (I'm addicted)

    I have a little problem,
    I have a daemon for a wife,
    He delights in your pretty face and he hates my life.
    Takes notes on how to provoke past grief,
    Makes my teeth decay with the last of my self belief!

    Chorus:
    Change around the words that you say,
    To suit me fine,
    Make them mine. (I'm addicted)

    Listen to the voice in your head,
    It makes no sense, (I'm addicted)
    Take a rest.
    (I'm addicted)
    (I'm addicted)
    (I'm addicted)
    (I'm addicted)
