Stalking the currency shifts
As cause becomes
Embedded codes digital mistakes
So all the rest can

Choke for need and strain to bleed
The hunger I fix a taste for the feeding
This panic perpetuating poison upon us
As it plagues me into

Running the gamut again
Surprise you’re wrong
I’m not the defects for ones
You left out
Erratic an addict
Is leading my fall
Back to the faces
My weaknesses live

Shots down and riding the bomb
Shots down and riding this
Routine submissive disease
Just let me rot
Done with all these innocent thieves
While all us weak ones

Choke for need and strain to bleed
The hunger I fix a taste for the feeding
This panic perpetuating poison upon us
As it plagues me into

Running the gamut again
Surprise you’re wrong
I’m not the defects for ones
You left out
Erratic an addict
Is leading my fall
Back to the faces
My weaknesses live

Shots down and riding the bomb
Shots down and riding the bomb
Shots down and riding the bomb

Running the gamut again
Surprise you’re wrong
I’m not the defects for ones
You left out
Erratic an addict
Is leading my fall
Back to the faces
My weaknesses live

    General CommentThis song is clearly about being addicted to heroin and what being addicted to it takes away from you.

    Shots down and riding the bomb is a metaphor for how dangerous it is to be a heroin addict

    My InterpretationThe band's struggles with drug dependency (especially during this time) is heavily documented and confirmed by the band members of the time. As @hre2stay commented there are references throughout this song to drug use and it appears to clearly be dealing with the addictive nature of drugs, their effects on an individual (their erratic behaviour) and the challenges with breaking such a cycle (if indeed they want to break that cycle).
