"Ulysses" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Paul Robert Thompson and Robert Hardy....
While I sit in here, a sentimental face stares
And a voice says hi, so
So what you gotta what you gotta disdain.
C'mon let's get high
C'mon look so, you got next oh,
Walk 25 miles oh
Well I'm bored
I'm bored.
C'mon let's get high.

C'mon let's get high.
C'mon let's get high.
High.

Well I found a new way
I found a new way.
C'mon doll and use me;
I don't need your sympathy.

Ulysses
I'll find a new way
I'll find a new way, baby.

I'm not Ulysses, I'm boy Ulysses
No, but you are now, boy.

So sinister, so sinister,
Last night was wild.
What's a matter there, feeling kinda anxious?
That hot blood, grew cold.

Yeah everyone, everybody knows it.
Yeah everyone, everybody know it.
Everybody knows I

Ulysses
I'll find a new way.
I'll find a new way, baby.

Ulysses
I'll find a new way.
Well I'll find a new way, baby.

Oh, Oh, then suddenly you know
You're never going home
You're never [Repeat: x6]
You're never going home.

Not Ulysses, baby.
No,
You're not Ulysses

    General CommentThis is about doing harder and newer drugs to escape boredom and depression. The character thinks he's found a new way out of his painful existence and is delirious with the idea, but inevitably he crashes. The drugs are not as effective and he is just as depressed if not more than where he started. He'll never get "home" because he's not Ulysses. Home here means a place of happiness, contentment and comfort.
