Three Days Grace – Painkiller lyrics

[Verse 1]
You know you need a fix when you fall down,
You know you need to find a way to get you through another day.
Let me be the one to numb you out,
Let me be the one to hold you,
Never gonna let you get away.

[Pre-Chorus]
The shoulder you cry on,
The dose that you die on!

[Chorus]
I, I can be your painkiller, killer, killer!
Love me 'til it's all over, over,
'Cause I'm the shoulder you cry on,
The dose that you die on.
I, I can be your painkiller, killer, killer!

[Verse 2]
I know what you want so desperately.
You know I'll give you one for free,
Forever you're coming back to me.
Now I'm gonna give you what you need,
'Cause I know what you feed on ,and what you lead on,
And what you lead on.

[Pre-Chorus]
The shoulder you cry on,
The dose that you die on!

[Chorus]
I, I can be your painkiller, killer, killer!
Love me 'til it's all over, over,
'Cause I'm the shoulder you cry on,
The dose that you die on.
I, I can be your painkiller, killer, killer!

[Bridge]
Did you find the another cure?
Did you find the another cure?

[Chorus]
I, I can be your painkiller, killer, killer!
Love me 'til it's all over, over,
'Cause I'm the shoulder you cry on,
The dose that you die on.
I, I can be your painkiller, killer, killer!

[Outro]
Painkiller!

    This song is almost the voice of addiction, the voice that urges you to take that pill or drink that bottle. It describes how someone is so addicted to something they cannot escape it, even though it could kill them and be the last thing they do. It describes how someone's emotional agony forces them into trying to numb their pain/life out with an addiction. From a personal perspective of dealing with a Codeine (painkiller) addiction, this song describes exactly how the addiction feels "The shoulder you cry on" and is pretty much the way my addiction speaks to me.

    This song is about depending on something so much that it could end up killing you. The song is from the perspective of the thing that you rely on to reduce the everyday pain that you feel and it is saying that I will be the end of you unless you find another way to take your mind off whatever is causing your pain but don't get too attached to it as then it would take the place of me being a painkiller.
