I'm having a hard time with such obvious things
everything gets in the way
I keep on pissing around this dirty hotel
and knocking over everything
everything gets in the way

I feel like a stupid, nervous bomb exploding
I wish you were here already
'cause this whole room seems upside-down and outside
no one understands the pain
I wish you were here already

Because how we ended up in this state
is not what's driving me so crazy
it's all the questioning that follows
and all the things you know you don't know

    My Interpretationit's about a person who's going through a hard time. his surrounding are bleak, like in a dirty hotel. he feels alone, because no one around him understands him. and he's anxious to see someone, "pacing around" like a "stupid, nervous bomb exploding." but eventhough he wishes she was there, there's something's that's gone wrong between them. cos they've "ended up in this state". i don't know what "all the questioning" is about, but maybe he's second-guessing himself. and not having the answers drives him "crazy"
