about

Ever have a relationship break up, and the other person still wants to keep all in your business? This is a song about that.

lyrics

I'm not the one that called you today.
I'm not the one that stands in your way.
I'm not the one that you take to your bed.
I am the one in the back of your head.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
needle.
I'm not the one driving the car.
You aren't the one alone in this bar.
I'm not the one with my head in your lap.
But you are the one
that won't go away.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
needle.
Your eyes are the flame and your lips are the fuse,
your ass is the bomb that I'm trying to use.
You can take it by mouth, or pierce the skin
the only thing I ask is we can't be friends.
Love is a drug, and sex is a needle.
God is a drug, and sex is a needle.
Sugar is a drug and my television,
slept with a needle.
A spoon full of syrup is small compensation;
addictive incentives, and pleasured sensations.
Your tolerance grows, and you're in my daydreams.
You are the one that's taking me o-o-ver.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Law is a drug,
and crime is a needle.
Medicine's a drug,
and sickness is evil.
I'm not the one that needed a break,
you are the one that's driving asleep.
I'm not at fault for being myself.
You're not at fault for falling in love with you.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
and sex is a needle.
Love is a drug,
needle.

about

illicitizen New York, New York

Illicitizen are a varied mix of thought provoking lyrics, melodic bass grooves and spikey guitars. Without fail the duo is noted for exposing norm violating rhythms and lyrical eccentricities. The constants are dramatic and demonstrative vocals and a stimulating bass beat. ... more
