Well, that was some performance you gave at the Albert's Dam
Oh Sri Lanka, hilarious
And by the way you missed nothing after leaving

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
Spend my life in the shade of the morning sun

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
I don't care 'cause I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much

    General CommentIt has already been validated from Bernard Sumner himself that this song is about drug addiction. Here is the breakdown.

    > I feel so extraordinary
    > Something's got a hold on me
    > I've got this feeling I'm in motion
    > A sudden sense of liberty

    The singer is getting high.

    > I don't care 'cos I'm not there
    > And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
    > Again and again I've taken too much
    > Of the thing that costs you too much

    The singer is quite carefree now, but the drug is costing him too much probably in both time and money.

    > *I used to think that the day would never come
    > I'd see the light in the shade of the morning sun
    > My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
    > To the childhood I lost replaced by fear
    > I used to think that the day would never come
    > That my life would depend on the morning sun

    He never thought that his life would be totally dominated by drugs.

    > When I was a very small boy
    > Very small boys talked to me
    > Now that we've grown up together
    > They're afraid of what they see

    Actually, a neighborhood friend of mine turned into a drug addict and changed dramatically. He was no longer the same guy we knew, and the others was pretty shocked at what happened to him. It's quite a transformation.

    > That's the price that we all pay
    > Our valued destiny comes to nothing
    > I can't tell you where we're going
    > I guess there's just no way of knowing

    The price of drugs is that you have no future. There is no way for them to know precisely what their future is anymore ... if any.
