Addictive Lair

Lying is an addiction,
And like drug addictions
It causes problems,
You don't care if it'll cause problems,
Cuz you already caused friction,
You took my heart
And a razor blade,
You didn't hesitate to start
Ripping it apart,
If you were to take a hit
For every time you lie,
I wouldn't dare say
How many joints you've burned away,
If you think, there's still
A place for you in my heart,
Then you better start
Walking away
Cuz you know
You're not gonna stay
On my mind
Before I shut my eyes,
