“The Addict - Lyman Ellerman is an amazing singer/songwriter, and his music is always top drawer, but this time he has outdone himself. We need more songs like this in our day and age ... It’s a very important message, wrapped up in an absolutely beautiful package. Open it up. Open your heart.”

Lyrics

Call me an addict
I've been doing this for years
Just old habit
You're not the first to interfere
I say hooked ain't so bad in my book
I'm just run down tired and empty

You want to help me
But I don't think you can
You see the shell
But you can't see the man
I'm like a ghost in your eyes I am lost
I'm still here but I'm somewhere else

There's no easy way to tell you how it feels
To be tangled up and twisted like me
It's not like I'm the only one
Who's ever thought nothing's wrong when nothing's right
Do you get what I mean
I don't know if I'm still hiding or fighting or lying anymore

The absence of my fear
You try so hard to understand
Through this stained glass reflection
Of where I've been and who I am

There's no easy way to tell you how it feels
To be tangled up and twisted like me
It's not like I'm the only one
Who's ever thought nothing's wrong when nothing's right
Can you see what I mean
I don't know if I'm still fighting or lying for dying anymore
