It's party night tonight, just like every night;
And once again, you've death defied.
And how are those things that crawled up inside your head?
Polish off this bottle and pour yourself into bed.

Let's shoot some drugs and fall in love,
'cause I feel like...

And you're sick all the time
It's a constant battle with sunshine
But I love the way you electrify.
There's something very damaged about you,
But I've got a bad habit of never giving up
Even when you want me to.
(Touch me)
I
(Come apart)

Let's shoot some drugs and fall in love,
'cause I feel like getting tangled up in your bones.

Someone gave you up; you were prosthetic in love,
But I will keep you carved inside my gun
Until morning comes.

I can feel the dawn peering in,
And I'm gonna lose you all over again. (Over again, over again, over again, over again)

I've been so high on you, I never quite came down.

Let's shoot some drugs and fall in love,
Cause I feel like getting tangled up in your bones.
Someone gave you up; you were prosthetic in love,
But I will keep you carved inside my gun

    Song MeaningEvilDeedsX is way off. The song is about two characters. A girl and a guy. The girl is the " party " type. The only way she knows how to have is by heavy drug use. The guy is a hopeless romantic in search of love. He wants this girls attention but he finds that the only time she pays attention to him is when they shoot up together. This apparently only takes place at night. He doesn't want the morning to come because, by thsy time, she will have sobered up. As stated earlier, when she's sober, she's not having fun. She wants nothing to do with him. He feels like she only loves him when she's high. In reality, she doesn't love him at all. He's just someone for to have fun with. Obviously he's in love with her, so much so that he's willing to take his own live. Hence the line, " I will keep you carved inside my gun. " The song also shows that the guy think she could possibly save the girl from her wreckless lifestyle. He sees that no one has shown her true love before. He thinks he can give her that.

    General CommentI believe this song is about people who met at a party and were drug users, and they decided to do drugs together and one of them over dosed and the other is dealing with the guilt.
