"Comedown" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
Love and hate, get it wrong
She cut me right back down to size
Sleep the day, let it fade
Who was there to take your place
No one knows, never will
Mostly me, but mostly you
What do you say, do you do
When it all comes down

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need yeah

I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this, all this time

There is no blame only shame
When you beg you just complain
The more I come, more I try
All police are paranoid
So am I, so's the future
So are you, be a creature
What do you say do you do when it all comes down

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need, yeah yeah yeah

I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this, all this time

Love and hate, get it wrong
She cut me right back down to size
Sleep the day, let it fade
Who was there to take your place
No one knows, never will
Mostly me, but mostly you
What do you say, do you do
When it all comes down

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this time to find out what I need, yeah yeah yeah

'Cause I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud
It's taken me all this, all this time

Come down
I don't wanna come back
Down from this cloud, this cloud, this cloud
This cloud, this cloud, this cloud, this cloud
This cloud, this cloud

    My InterpretationIt's obviously about drugs, there's lyrics missing. Right before the 2nd verse before he starts over he says: shoot up, shoot up, shoot up, you're high.(love and hate get it wrong she cut me right back down to size) love and hate relationship with drugs, and how it wins. (Sleep the day, let it fade.who was there to take your place) sleeping the withdraws away, nothing is worth doing without the drug. (No one knows, never will.mostly me but mostly you) a non addict will never understand, that it's now more about the drug then himself.(what do u say, do u do, when it all comes down) when you're dope sick. (I don't wanna come back down from this cloud it's taken me all this time to find out what I need) feels like he's finally found happiness. (There is no Blame only shame when u beg u just complain) can't blame no one for your addiction, ashamed of it.when u beg cause u need it, u feel like youre weak and people see u as complaining. (The more I come, the more I try.all police are paranoid) the more I come down the more I'll do to get back up, anything even illegal stuff. (So am i, so's the future, so are u, be a creature) he doesn't know what he might do either, and has no idea what the future holds and neither does his loved ones, he's becoming like a non-human, a creature (what do u say, do u do, when it all comes down) he's asking, what do u do. Basically there's nothing he won't do to keep that high anymore. I may have been able to see it as a stalkerish love song because of the movie it played in "fear", perhaps comparing love to a drug. But the shoot up you're high (which isn't mentioned above but is part of the lyrics) just has me thinking it's about drug's
