I wanna be the monkey on your back
I'll be your heroin.
The junk in your spoon, the black in your balloon
I'll be your heroin.

I will numb away the pain of the everyday.

The itch that you itch just as soon as you prick
I'll be your heroin.
The nod in the doze as you slow in repose
I'll be your heroin.

I will numb away the pain of slipping away Into the lazy days of getting by
The soft surrender, no longer getting high
The days in traffic, oh so tragic and cruel
With nowhere to go and nothing in front of you.

You'll crave, and you'll need, you'll be hurting for me
I'll be your heroin.
You'll lie and you'll steal just to drown what you feel
I'll be your heroin.

I will numb away the feelings that make you say
"I'm okay, and everything is doing fine,
I'm all right, but I can never find the time,
Work's been great, but how I hate my life,
Somebody tell me what am I doing right."

I'll be your heroin,
And I'll comfort you.
In all of your blackest moods,
I'll pull you through.
I'll be your heroin,
What else could I do?

You will need more just so you can feel normal
I'll be your heroin.
And one day you'll see that you'll die without me
I'll be your heroin.

I will numb away the pain of playing it safe
And always taking the lower road,
Always backing down and selling out and going home
And never, ever being better than you are,
The pain of being anything but a star.

    General CommentThis is about someone wanting another person to be completely dependent on them, like a heroin addict.
    They'll be kind to the person as long as they give them everything they want out of them.
