"Back on the Borderline" as written by Martin Rotsey, Robert Hirst, James Moginie, Peter Garrett and Andrew James,....
From the bar to the bedroom I'm swimming in the neon
Lighted pictures of a redhead, plastic-coated hot on
And sometimes when that mirror shows
The smile of disbelief
Stained signature of nightmares
They're stolen by the thief

I'm back on the borderline
Yes I'm back on the borderline

By the end make a bet and only place is laminex
Laugh a lot cry a lot salt and pepper supper sex
And sometimes when that magic of the moment
Fails the test
In retrospect that diamond day
Did not make second best
And sometimes when a thousand voices
Tell you that you're wrong
A saint in any form
Becomes a sinner all along

    My InterpretationIt seems to me this starts off referring to a guy living a rockstar life style with free sex - then he gets married / settles with one partner, becomes jaded and goes back to his old lifestyle [in his dreams perhaps......]

    The line 'plastic coated hot on' sounds like '...hard on' - and I guess that's what it means?
