Written whilst under the influence, Kicking The Habit is the raucous 5th track from The Lost Art's debut album.
Carelessly I fall to a place that I call home and relax.
Let my mind unwind and absorb the stuffy air,
it's a fact, I'm here, too loud and clear, again.
…because I'm kicking' the habit again,
don't wanna wake up this morning past 10, I'm there again.
I'll destroy myself so happily,
and I love every minute of this hate and passion.
The sort of the fashion, the wearing, that keeps me alive.
I'm convinced, I'll survive.
...because I'm kicking' the habit again,
don't wanna wake up this morning past 10, past 11, past 12,
past 1 again.
And I'm annoyed with myself for the habit I crave.
Keep fuelling the fire and keep going on,
all my needs are running away with me.
Kickin' the Habit, kicking' the habit again…
Carelessly I fall, and stumble to my knees and collapse,
I but to your eyes I'm hopeless nobody, so cumbersome
and fat on a life of poisonous crap again.
So I pick myself up and stretch out a hand for the sprits that keep me alive…
Cider and beer and whiskey and wine…
Here we are swimming through a dream
ignoring the outside world thinking of that girl.
I'm a yellow submarine and you're in a bubble, but I'm the one in trouble.
Pop me out of this world I'm in don't leave me here to drown
in my yellow submarine…
Bring on the habit, don't kick the habit, bring back the habit now…
…'cause I'm free.
So don't make me feel like I'm not sane,
I'm high on imaginary fame,
I couldn't bear the shame.
Kickin' the habit again,
don't wanna wake up this morning past 10,
I'm there again.
