Produced by Matt Allison & Alkaline Trio. Album This Addiction. You hit me just like heroin I feel you coursing through my veins I once tried to kick this addiction I swear I'll never kick again, won't ever kick again, no. This addiction Can't seem to live without you This addiction No going clean This addiction Go through withdrawal without you Sick with this addiction in me. Well those others were like methadone I took to get me through the day Now I'm trying to find my way back home Staying clean along the way Hold.

Band Name Alkaline Trio. Album Name This Addiction. Dine, Dine My Darling.
Artist: Alkaline Trio.
Hooks did not exactly play a defining role in the trio’s earlier releases either. Those albums predominantly succeeded on the back of the bands passion, energy and trademark dark lyrics being integrated into seemingly effortless raw melodies. While all those traits exist in scattered grabs throughout ‘This Addiction’, they appear more forced than previously. This is especially the case with Skiba’s integral lyrics, which simply aren’t as memorable as they once were.
Singer/guitarist, Matt Skiba, has said that the album sounds like if we were to make our first record now. Their old school sound certainly shines through on this album. The opening guitar riff on Dead on the Floor may sound familiar to Trio fans with the Southern Rock type of intro. The rest of the song has a San Francisco type of feel to it. Surprisingly for an Alkaline Trio song, horns are featured on Lead Poisoning, which adds an interesting dynamic to the song, giving it almost a NOFX type of sound.
