Puretone – Addicted to bass

All Music

I got two pale hands up against the window pane
I’m shaking with the heat of my need again
It starts in my feet, reverbs up to my brain
There’s nothing I can do to reverse the gain
I’m looking down to the street below
There’s nothing in the way they move to show
They too, know what I know
They too hunger for the beast below
Listening to the radio I feel so out of place
There’s a certain something missing that the treble can’t erase
I know you can tell just by looking at my face
A word about my weakness
I’m totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

There’s nothing I can do to be cool
I don’t sleep till I’ve had my fuel
It frustrates if I am deprived
A hunger that grates from deep inside
I feel like I’m doing time
Imprisoned by dependence on a rhythm sublime
In my mind I must overcome the need to define
The solitary silence of a faceless crime

Standing by the stereo I’m feeling so alone
My back against a speaker and I’m moving on my own
Surrounded by so many and they’re staring at my face
They’re picking up my problem
Totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Totally addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Wow woah ho
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It’s filling up my mind

Sunrise at my window, I look down on the street
People I see everywhere are tapping their feet
Suddenly I realise in a look that I was wrong
Everybody’s groovin’ to their own song
Down at the scene below
There’s something in the way they move to show
They too, know what I know
They too hunger for the beast below

Rhythm’s running over me to wash away my fears
The backbeat of humanity sweetens my tears
There’s something that’s connected us down throughout the years
No need to feel so lonely, everyone’s addicted to bass
Wow woah ho
Everyone’s addicted to bass
Wow woah ho

Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Your bassline
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It’s filling up my mind
Your bassline is shooting up my spine
Your bassline
Your bassline has got me feeling fine
It’s filling up my mind…

Puretone, an alias of musician Josh G. Abrahams, is a Australian and Melbourne-based producer, bassist and electronica/drum and bass artist. He has gained some success in the music business since 1998, with his first single, “Addicted To Bass” featuring Amiel Daemion, charting in the top 20 of the ARIAnet singles chart. After a few more lower profile releases, such as “Rollin'”, and contributing to the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack, he released “Addicted To Bass” internationally, under the name of Puretone. This was to avoid confusion with Josh Abraham, a music producer who has worked with Limp Bizkit and Staind. This resulted in the single reaching #2 in the UK Singles Chart in 2002. He then eventually helped Amiel start her own music career in Australia, in which she gained quite some success. He then released another single in the UK, called “Stuck In A Groove”, however that only reached the top 30.
