They said "you'll feel better in the morning, take some of these".
And now I can't feel a thing.
I dreamt I was an addict, and I woke up in a panic,
Dying to get back to sleep.

In the waking world I wander around
Wondering where to go...
In my dreams I'm running
Right into your door.

I got a little headache, why should today be any different?
It just screams, go home, go home, go home.
So I tried to find the subway, but then someone tripped and unplugged me.
Now silent and still I lay here until, she comes and turns me on.

Out here I'm a mess,
I'm a ghost who overslept on Halloween.
I've been stood up twice, and she seemed so nice,
I think her name was destiny...

Let me in, I don't wanna leave here ever again
It's an ugly world, where beautiful
Doesn't mean much of anything...
Let me in.

    General CommentI think that in this song, as with a lot of the songs he's written as Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room, he's talking about his wife and/or daughter. Without his family, "it's an ugly world where beautiful doesn't mean much of anything". So when he's out in this ugly world, maybe while on tour, he just wants to be back with his family where things are much better. I think this interpretation is reinforced when he says:

    "In the waking world I wander around
    Wondering where to go...
    In my dreams I'm running
    Right into your door.

    I got a little headache, why should today be any different?
    It just screams, go home, go home, go home."

    Man, I love this song, though. The guitar riff, the lyrics, and the driving, upbeat instrumentals all combine to make a deliciously addictive song.
