"I Don't Need" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
The world is consuming me
And I don't feel so happy here today
I'm numb and I don't feel and
I used to be a baby in my day

So where is the one you loved?
Did she hold you happy next to her?
And your head hangs lightly
And everyone's slightly drunk tonight
They're drunk tonight again
I Don't need to see you, no not now
I Don't need to see you, no not now
My head is hanging now and
My eyes are on the ground, the ground, the ground
And everyone's so patronising
I don't see when the real things comes around


So where is your mother now
Did she hold you happy next to her
And your head hangs lightly
And everyone's slightly drunk tonight
They're drunk tonight again
I Don't need to see you, no not now
I Don't need to see you, no not now
And maybe no work done today, no work done today. No. No. No.
No work done today. No. No. No. No, work done today.

    General CommentIt seems to be about someone realizing how shallow, stupid, frustrating, unfulfilling and wasteful her social life is. She sees how her so-called friends act stupid and are always drinking too much and their judgmental attitude towards her. And she still feels stupid herself because in spite of these perceptions, she stiil feels somehow attracted to these people, therefore she says to herself "I don't need to see you". This part, "And maybe no work done today" is her regret and guilt for not making better use of her time and instead spending time with those people, being stupid and childish with them. Or maybe it means she's so sad today that she can't get any work done that day.
