"My Recovery Injection" as written by and Simon Alexander/johnston Neil....
I've been waitin' on the overdrive
Slick and polished on the inside
It ruins feeding time

I'll recover in an empty room
In remission from a real mood
Sit down, fuck-up, and wait your turn

Why can't we hide, our secret lives?

Why can't we climb, this useless height?

You hide your time, so well
Small scars of love, and hate, and happiness
You hide your scars, so well

I'll recover if you want me to
Dig my way out of my black mood
Wait for the sun to fade

Why can't we hide, our useless lives?

You hide your time, so well
Small scars of love, and hate, and happiness
You hide your scars, so well

You hide your time, so well
Small scars of love, and hate, and happiness
You hide your scars, so well

And nothing matters anymore
And nothing matters anymore
And nothing matters anymore

And nothing matters anymore
And nothing matters anymore
And nothing matters anymore

(You) And nothing matters anymore
(Say) And nothing matters anymore
(Nothing) And nothing matters anymore
(You) And nothing matters anymore
(Say) And nothing matters anymore
(Nothing) And nothing matters anymore

    General CommentI think this song could be about using drugs to forget whats going on in reality. "Small scars of love" sounds like a needle prick and "I've been waiting on the overdrive
    Slick and polished on the inside" could be about the feeling off just having taken a shot.
    THere are obviously two subjects of the song and this might be a lover, or simply a friend who doesnt seem to get so many negative effects.
    I also think the ending of the song is a very emotive way of showing the effect the drugs have: "And nothing matters anymore."
    I dunno, i just confused myself, but make of it what you will.

    General CommentI'm sure its defo about drugs, but more about a partner or close one pleading for them to stop it for there own safety, the second verse of it anyway, but some of it seems like he's observing a friend of more experience using the substance and he almost envies or looks up to them. Then that bring us to peer preasure, just say no kids!

    General CommentThe title of this song reminds me of that scene in Pulp Fiction when that girl's ODing and they need to give her that shot to the heart. Its one of my favourite Biffy songs and the line "I'll recover in an empty room." reminds me of the stage of isolation after a break-up where you just sit alone in your room thinking. If you read the song plainly then you'll get the impression of the song being about a recovering drug addict, but if you look a little closer it could be about the end of a relationship, depression and self-harm.

    General Commenti think its about both drugs and relationships.
    the first verse is about someone using drugs to escape from things:
    "ill recover in an empty room, in remission from a real mood', ie escaping from his real mood (miserable/ depressed) to summat better.
    then, "why cant we hide? our secret lives" someone close to hiim finds out about his drug usage
    "you hide your scars so well"
