"Amphetamine Logic" as written by Andrew Eldritch and Gary Marx....
Watch them do
The falling over
Watch them do
The standing still
Nothing but the knife to live for
One life all I need
Give me one good reason
Give me more s.....
And the women come and go
Talking about me like they know
Bought and sold
And the world keeps turning
People cold
And people burning
(Amphetamine logic)
Hit up
Steel in hand
Lit up
Like candles
Like Catherine wheels
(Amphetamine logic)

    General CommentI agree with most of your interpretation, PreiSamhain, but there is no hidden meaning behind the absence of the word "Amphetamine" on the back of the CD. This is copied and pasted from the official Sisters of Mercy website:

    Q: "Why is 'Amphetamine Logic' listed on the outside of the album artwork simply as 'Logic'?"

    A: "The record company (WEA) were adamant that Woolworth's, WH Smith and other respectable wholesale retailers would not display albums with song titles featuring the word 'amphetamine'. So they refused to print the full title on the outside album sleeve. This was 1985, remember, when places like WH Smith wouldn't even stock satirical magazines like 'Private Eye'. The argument wasn't worth a six-month contractual meltdown."
