I sent you out to play last night
The alarms went off at three.
Funny how I'm not loving now
Lonely does not guarantee.

I sent you out to play last night
The alarms went off at three.
Funny how I'm not loving now
He's not coming home to me.

I sent you out to play last night
The alarms went off at three.
Funny how I'm not loving now
He's not coming home to me.

And I move out of love.
If only there was only no consequence.
I'd watch it all turn to dust.

Hey can I go with you, my beauty number 2?
Hey can I go with you, when the rendezvous' over?

    My InterpretationThere is a reference, but not to Andy Warhol film. It's actually set in a futuristic sci-fi world (as you can tell from the music itself).
    Let me tell you what this song is really about.

    //back-story
    In the year circa 2116, a faster-than-light starship Von Braun is colonized by aliens known as "annelids" or "The Many". (They're a species similar to the Zerg in StarCraft.) A couple onboard try to escape from the ship. Their names are Rebecca Siddons and Tommy Suarez.
    //back-story ends.

    You are the hero. The couple contact you for help. You repair the escape pods for them, and "rendezvous" with them. You watch them escape in the pod and you are wondering "hey can I go with you?" The answer is no, you can't go with them. Your job on the ship "is not over". You still need to fight the aliens before you can go home.

    "Beauty Number 2" refers to Rebecca Siddons. SHODAN is Number 1 (that is, your virtual girlfriend) and Siddons is "Number 2". The romantic thing is attractive, but not the main focus of this song. The main focus is RESPONSIBILITY. You could go with the couple, but there would be "consequence" -- it would "all turn to dust". It's up to you to save the universe blah blah blah (but since Thom Yorke said he could do that, why can't you?)

    You have to experience the scary, cold and lonely Von Braun to understand it better. It's a warm and touching (while also a little sad) feeling to finally see someone escape from the ship alive. And this song captures that feeling perfectly.

    "It's not over" is the key line here. You will want to hear this song only when it's NOT over. When it IS over, there are happier songs to listen to.
