"Home Sweet Hole" as written by and Matthew Stephen Nicholls Jona Weinhofen....
Cross my heart I don't want to die
But heaven knows it seems like I try
Lost in a labyrinth for weeks on end
I live and I learn from my mistakes
Then forget them again

Got a feeling in my stomach and it just won't quit
As subtle as a shotgun and as heavy as a brick
'Cause I'm staring at the devil and the truth of it is
He's a lot more familiar than I care to admit

If only I could focus
Maybe if I could see
If I didn't know any better
I would say he looks just like me

The roof is crashing down
The walls are caving in
We've discovered all your stories
Are just works of fiction
The roof is crashing down
The truth is spilling out

(Oh, shit) I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
(Oh) I've crossed the line
(No) So many times
I don't even know what it stands for
(Oh, shit) I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
(Oh) I've crossed the line
(No) So many times
I don't even know what it stands for

Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say

Got a feeling in my stomach that just won't quit
As subtle as a shotgun, as heavy as a brick
Bite your tongue, just bite your tongue
You've already said quite enough

Another roof is crashing down
The walls are caving in
We discover all your stories are just works of fiction
The roof is crashing down
The truth is spilling out

(Oh, shit) I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
(Oh) I've crossed the line
(No) So many times
I don't even know what it stands for
(Oh, shit) I've done it again
I'm way too far in over my head
(Oh) I've crossed the line
(No) So many times
I don't even know what it stands for

You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair and let's be done with it
You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair, so kick the chair

You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair and let's be done with it
You wear your lies like a noose around your neck
So kick the chair, so kick the chair

Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you wish for
Home sweet hole
Just be careful what you say

    General CommentI think this is about addiction. Home is a place of familiarity, somewhere you always go back to. Despite his struggles to "learn from his mistakes," he just "forgets them" again and ends up back "home," which is inevitably his curse or..hole.

    General CommentThis song is about ketamine addiction.
    Oliver Sykes came out about his addiction not long after the album after this was released, and the peak of a ketamine trip is called "being in the K-Hole" or "being in the hole".
    Home sweet hole.
