"Bad Obsession" as written by West Arkeen and Izzy Stradlin....
I can't stop thinkin'
Thinking 'bout sinkin'
Sinkin' down into my bed
I call my mother
She's just a cunt now
She said I'm sick in the head
She said you ain't special
So who you foolin'
Don't try ta give me a line
But I can't stop thinkin' 'bout
Seein' ya one more time
(Oh no)
But I already left you
And you're better off left behind

It's a bad obsession
It's always messin'
It's always messin' my mind
It's a bad obsession
It's always messin'
It's always messin' my mind

Too bad you're fucked up

I used to be wasted
Always tried to take it
Take it down into my vein
I call the doctor
He's just another
He said I'm sick in the brain
He said you ain't special
So who you foolin'
Don't try ta give me a line
But I can't stop thinkin' 'bout
Doin' it one more time
(Oh no)
But I already left you
And you're better off left behind
(Oh yeah)

Aw it's a bad obsession
It's always messin'
It's always messin' my mind
It's a bad obsession
It's always messin'
It's always messin' my mind

So bad...

Boy

It's a
It's a
Heads up
It's a bad obsession
It's always messin'
It's always messin' my mind
Now it's a bad obsession
It's always messin'
It's always messin' my mind

But I can't stop thinkin' 'bout
Doin' it one more time
(Oh no)
See I already left you
And you're better off left behind
(Oh no, oh no)
It's a bad obsession
And you're always messin' my mind
See I already left you
And you're better off left behind
Uh huh...no

Maybe you'll do better next time
Punk!!

    General CommentIts pretty obvious that it has two meanings. One, that he's trying to kick his drug habit, and compares it to a habit like biting nails. Two, he's addicted to sex with his ex girlfriend. I like the last one better because too many songs "could" be about drugs.

    General CommentThe only way this songs meanig could be more obvious is if it were called "Bad Obsession with Heroin".

    It's clearly about having kicked heroin physically, knowing you're better off with out it, but not being able to get it out of your head.

    General CommentHe clearly left a girl for personal reasons, but can't stop thinking about her and how great sex with her was.
    He knows he shouldn't get back with her, but he want's too really bad.
