Looking through my window,
I can see a thin glow,
I don't get depressed though,
I'm casting lazy shadows,
It's all I need to stop me thinking,

Every single day though,
I throw myself away though,
It's all I need to stop me thinking,

Get my head-straight, get my head-straight, get it straight,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't, don't you ever let go,
You take it all back, take it back, take your money back,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't, don't you ever let go,
All I need's to stop me thinking,

Looking through this window,
I need a change of view though,
Looking through last year though,
But all I saw was you, though,
You're all I need to stop me thinking,

Get my head-straight, get my head-straight, get it straight,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't, don't you ever let go,
You take it all back, take it back, take your money back,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't, don't you ever let go,

All I wanted was to chicken out,
And simmer down,
You've got your head gear on again,
And you feel like you've been left out,

Don't you ever, don't you, don't you ever, don't you,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't you ever, don't you,

I've gotta get my head-straight, get my head-straight, get it straight,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't you never, don't, let go,
And that is all right,
Get my head-straight, get my head-straight, get my head,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't, don't you ever let go,
And that is all right,
Get my head-straight, get my head-straight, get my head,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't, don't you ever let go,
And that is all right,
You take it all back, take it back, take your money back,
Don't you ever, don't you, don't, don't you ever let go,

All it need's to stop me thinking.

    General CommentThis one is about drug abuse leading to a relationship failing. I think...
    The casting lazy shadows bit is probably related to weed, being chilled out and relaxed, especially to stop him thinking. Just to take everything off his mind and let him relax for a minute. However I think the shadows bit, is to represent something that passed a long time ago, both his drug habit and the relationship?
    The thinking behind the relationship theory is all the use of 'take your money back' 'take it all back', this is the violent part of him. I think possibly on some trips he maybe got quite violent 'you've got your head gear on' could be a reference to her having to defend herself. Very crude I know. But thats my interpretation. I also think 'looking through last year though, but all I saw was you' suggests he's totally not over her and that's probably the reason his drug addiction is now 'shadows' as he's left it behind because he realises all the harm it can do? 'You're all I need to stop me thinking' seems to show how she could so easily replace the part missing from his life, that was drugs and he feels ought to be love.
    Overall, I think he desperately wants someone to fill the gap that drugs no longer can, that might just be me though.
