Cross my heart and hope to die
Burn my lungs and curse my eyes.
I've lost control
And I don't want it back.
I'm going numb
I've been hijacked
It's a fucking drag.

I taste you on my lips
And I can't get rid of you.
So I say, Damn your kiss
And the awful things you do.

Yeah, you're worse than nicotine
Nicotine
Yeah, you're worse than nicotine
Nicotine, yeah.

It's better to burn
Than to fade away,
It's better to leave
Than to be replaced.
I'm losing to you,
Baby, I'm no match.
I'm going numb
I've been hijacked
It's a fucking drag.

I taste you on my lips
And I can't get rid of you.
So I say, damn your kiss
And the awful things you do.

Yeah, you're worse than nicotine
Nicotine
Yeah, you're worse than nicotine
Nicotine, yeah.

Just one more hit
And then we're through
'Cause you could never love me back.
Cut every tie I have to you
'Cause your love's a fucking drag
But I need it so bad.
Your love's a fucking drag
But I need it so bad.

Yeah, you're worse than nicotine
Nicotine
Yeah, you're worse than nicotine
Nicotine,
Yeah.

    This song is about loving someone who is no good for you, someone who can't or won't love you the way you love them. You know being with this person will only hurt you, but you can't seem to stop because you're so lost in the physical pleasure and the immediate satisfaction they bring you that you overlook the pain you know it will bring later.
