A song about addiction.

Epitome

I have found myself at last,
And I think that acting myself
Has changed my view of the world

(As I watch a passerby
Walking down the street
I see them as a lie
I see them as incomplete.
They dress like they do
Because they all have to
It doesnít really matter at all
What they want to do.
Just go by the fashions and you look the same
But the game gets boring and they make a change
The trend has to be followed; now you see
They just follow the leader into misery.)

Everyone looks the same
No individuals here its so lame
Wouldnít it be a change
If people acted like themselves
But this is an addiction,
And they canít stop, I can tell.

(I started smoking two years ago with my friends,
And since then the pain hasnít stopped
It never ends.
I try to get out of this hell
But when the cravings come back
I am just overwhelmed.
It like that with everyone that I see
And I see the pain that is inside of me
And maybe itís the inspiration I need
To get myself back down on my feet)

CHORUS
An ongoing addiction,
What can I do?
Two sides conflicting
I am subdued!
This pain is endless
This must be the consequence
But maybe I can find my way backÖ

Just get out of meÖ.
You think Iím proud of meÖ
Just get out of me,
You wonít win the fight!(X2) [Like the A Place For My Head bridge!]

The only way for me
To get back on my feet
Is to destroy my human instincts

Hate, greed, jealousy,
They are the epitome
Of what instincts
Push us to the BRINK!

GO! GET AWAY! GO! GET AWAY!
I DONíT CARE WHAT THE HELL YOU WANNA SAY! (X2)

CHORUS

Let me be myself
Not just someone else,
Let me release this pain
Or do it all again.

Let me be myself,
Not just someone else,
Let me release this painÖ

I love the rhymes and it flows very well. The name is pretty cool. It's better than your other one.

Thanks...Check out 'Problems' and 'Slipping Away' (Methybrea is also me)
Slipping Away I think is better or as good as this one!

"Everyone looks the same
No individuals here its so lame" haha, to me, THAT'S lame.

"To get myself back down on my feet"

don't you mean to get yourself UP on your feet? just a suggestion. other than that, the song has a good feeling to it.

nice song.
I liked this part of the song best
"Let me be myself
Not just someone else,
Let me release this pain
Or do it all again."
