I don't feel the way I've ever felt
I know
Gonna smile and not get worried
I try but it shows

Anyone can make what I have built
And better now
Anyone can find the same white pills
It takes my pain away

It's a lie a kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything would bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Nevermind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me

I never thought I'd walk away from you
I did
But it's a false sense of accomplishment
Every time I quit

Anyone can see my every flaw
It isn't hard
Anyone can say they're above this all
It takes my pain away

It's a lie a kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Well anything would bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Nevermind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me

I can't let it bother me

It takes my pain away
It's a lie a kiss with opened eyes
And she's not breathing back
Anything but bother me
(It takes my pain away)
Nevermind these are horrid times
Oh oh oh
I can't let it bother me
It takes my pain
It takes my pain
It takes my pain away

    General CommentYou have the meaning wrong. It's not about drugs or what drug use has done to someone, or those around them. The song is about relationships, and the speaker in the song is struggling with someone He loves, who does not love him back. This love makes him feel addicted to her the way a drugie is addicted to drugs. The part about a kiss with open eyes, simbolizes how the one he loves shows no intrest in him, and is not breathing back the same feelings that he shows for her.. He is telling himself that he can not let it bother him, but infact it does. The false sence of accomplishment is when he thinks he is over her, the way a drug addict is over their addiction, but then something happens that makes him come back to his obsession. See the simbolism between drug use and love? it's there.
