In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.
Only when the creative destroyers and the destructive creators on the frontlines of the smashist onslaught begin pulling threads from the social fabric will the wool over your eyes begin to unravel. Do you need a lesson by example or do you need a lesson by force? When the spiders that crawl under your covers in the night begin to bite, they bite and bite. The crusaders of the not-quite-right sharpen their knives when you cut out the light. The spiders that crawl at night: they bite!

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
