  1. Painkiller

Lyrics

Maybe it's just the way you're wired
Some assistance is required
And I'm not quite the fix you're needing

A little something for the pain
A little more and more each day
And even then, the high is fleeting

With happiness in short supply, down you go
There's only so much you can buy, and I know
I'm not your painkiller
But you can't say I didn't try

You're all strung out, and that's the stuff 
You know you'll never get enough
There's no stopping once you've tried it

And you don't mind the damage done 
Falling from that high you're on
And I can't love you when you're like this

You won't look me in the eye; down you go
And I can't help you live your lie, so I know
I'm not your painkiller
But you can't say I didn't try

You'll get by; you'll be fine
Just a bit, one last time
It's so hard, but you're trying

And I'm alright; I can stay
I'll be here, come what may 
Now we both know we're lying

You say you'll stop; you always do
You couldn't if you wanted to
There's nothing else that's quite as satisfying

You know I hate to say goodbye; down you go
But I refuse to watch you die, and I know
I'm not your painkiller
But you can't say I didn't try
I tried, I tried
