Scrawled in one of Martin Bramah's notebooks by Mark E. Smith in April 1977, later Martin added the music. This is the song's first ever release.

lyrics

ADDICTED TO THE DAY

Put it off another day
The general idea
Everyday of the year
Addicted to the day
I'm addicted to the day
Addicted to the day
The Day . . .

Why did you wreck your house today?
Destroy everything you say
Addicted to the day
Addicted to the day
The Day . . .

That day I stumbled on that trapdoor
How could I have suspected my abysmal future?
A doom which has haunted me
And turned me into a wreck and a parody
Addicted to the day
Addicted to the day
The Day . . .

Why did you wreck your house today?
Destroy everything you say
Addicted to the day
Addicted to the day
The Day . . .

Addicted to the day
The Day
