This song's about a person that's addicted
to drugs and all the rubbish from their past
has to be removed to make the climb back to
reality... Addicted-Addicts...

(c) realmouse 2003 The rest is history..

V1 I took a ride on a magic carpet,
Through blue skies I was so high,
I could do no wrong,

Habit pushed me all my life,
To the outskirts of time, down a road,
Where life had no meaning,

So I made up my mind,
I'll follow the signs,
To the gates of reality,

Ch. I'm an addicted user,
Nearly ruined my life,
The rest is history,

Now I'm making my way from hell,
I'm paying the price,
The rest is history,

V2 Oh lordy,
I've been a naughty boy,
I've been shooting up,
I've been stressing out,
My life, and everyone elses,
Lordy, lordy, I've been using,
and abusing,
It's all because,

Ch. I'm an addicted user,
I'm paying the price,
The rest is history,

I'm gonna set things right,
Through the goodness of life,
I'm going back to reality,

Chord solo,

Mid 8. To all the people I've hurt,
I'm truly sorry,
For the lies, the alibi's,
I used, to get my way,

I'm changing for the better,
Feel I'm growing stronger,
I'm coming clean,
Yes I'm gonna make it,

Ch. Now I'm walking a straight line,
I've changed my life,
The rest is history,

Yes I'm walking a straight line,
I've payed the price,
The rest is history,

Coda. The rest is, the rest is,
The rest is history.

I loved the way that you wrote the lyrics here, a lot of confession from a addict-user trying to clean up the act caused by sin. These lyrics will open up someone else's heart into doing the right thing in life... It may seems like it is hard, but calling on the Lord, for He will surely hear the cries...

The rest is history
Very good Mouse. I know drugs can run havoc in a family. I agree with Jeannie, when this is sung it may be used to reach others. Stay cool...

i really respect you for writing this. it shows that these kinda things hit you in a different way. i love it when i hear songs that are about good things, and things happening for the better. altho most music out there is about drugs and dying and full of cursing. you should keep workin with this song, if you decide add music, or maybe you already did, i'm sure it'll rock!

good work. the content here was very positive...which is nice to read. its a good change from all the anger and sorrow that people take out in songs, which by the way is not bad because songs are about getting things off of there chests. anyways, it was a good write about recovery.
