Wake up next to you, honest screw.
Because you always go too far.
So, you slip slowly out, to sit in the next room
And eat your breakfast in the dark.
It won’t feed your cold and lonely heart

Hush, hush before you say
Something you can’t take away.
You step out for a cigarette,
You wait and you watch and you try to forget,
How the world doesn’t need you around.

You’re helplessly hollow
And you’re feeling the sting.
You’ve always had your doubts.
Last night’s naked kisses mock you over your shoulder
They light you up, then they blow you out.
Then they kill you without a sound.

Hush, hush before you say
Something you can’t take away.
You step out for a cigarette,
You wait and you watch and you try to forget,
How the world doesn’t need you around.
Hush, hush before you say
Something you can’t take away.

    General CommentI'm not entirely sure, but I think this is about someone always making the same mistakes of sleeping with people and then regretting it, in a very self-destructive way, to fill a void in their heart. Then they wake up the morning after and feel ashamed of what they've done, try to slip away unnoticed.
