Addicted!


Addition is too much,
Too much I fear, Fear is to sin
Sin is addiction
We not need to be addicted!

Let me not sin
Let me not go against the laws of the library
Let me not be addicted to you, neither you to me
For us to be together, we not need to be addicts.

Laughter is pleasure,
Smile is happiness,
Joy cleanse your soul,
We not need to be addicted!

Addiction is too much,
Too much I fear, fear is sin,
Sin is addiction.
We not need to sin.
