We all have vices - all of them unhealthy, illogical and generally against our better judgement.


I've been breaking all these hours up
Until my time is gone
Interdict me before the things I do
But what for all the things I've done?

I've been making a mess while you've been making your love to him
Near the absence of faith, on the outskirts of sin
Where you live, where i live....
Where well all be living

I'm going to give this up somehow.

I cannot see too many changes here for me
Still I know, that you know, that the change will come
So I pound the life right out of it with my fists
Still I know it comes back twice as strong

You'll be taking the best while I'm taking too long for things
I need cotton wool rest, I need your arm across my chest
I could swear that we talked - God I never listen.

I'm going to fine this up somehow.
