"Accident Without Emergency" as written by and Simon Alexander Neil....
The light leaves me terrified
I hate when the darkness dies
Don't you ever want to be brave?
It seems that we feel the same way

I would never leave you crawling
Even on the bathroom floor
It can be a lonely place,
Have you ever been there before?
No need to run away, no need to run away

Once you feel love, you'll taste the pain
Sent from above, you can't complain

Can I raise my head this morning?
My mind's needing cauterized
I'm in the shallow end drowning, it's a soup of flies
Or am I on a wall? Or am I on a wall?

Girl I should have told you but I've never been brave
Standing side by side, we'll take this whole place

The light leaves me terrified
I hate when the darkness dies
Don't you ever want to be brave?
It seems that we feel the same way

If this is an accident then where's the hurt?
At least someone here should be covered in blood

Tell me how to recognize you
Now that you're compromised
My skin's covered in holes,
Can you please take a look inside?
No need to hesitate, no need to hesitate

Girl I should have told you but I've never been brave
Standing side by side, we'll take this whole place

The light leaves me terrified
I hate when the darkness dies
Don't you ever want to be brave?
It seems that we feel the same way

I'll take a good look at myself
It's you I want and no one else
Don't you ever want to take sides?
I guess that's family suicide

If this is a concert then where's the crowd?
Let's sing it out and sing it proud

    My InterpretationI think this is about getting used to being in a negative frame of mind, maybe depression and feeling a bit stuck there as you get used to the "dark", anything different e.g. "light" scares you. It could be about about thinking someone else probably a partner, has been in the same position as well, but you're scared to tell them about your experience. I guess then maybe it's about not being ashamed of it and being proud of where you've got to.

    General CommentI think the song is about having a really bad hangover after having "accidentally" drank too much the night prior and suffering a significant other's wrath as a result.
