In cold light of morning while everyone is yawning
You're high
In the cold light of morning the party gets boring, you're high
As your skin starts to scratch and wave yesterdays action goodbye

Forget past indiscretions
And stolen possessions
You're high
In the cold light

In the cold light of morning while everyone's yawning
You're high
In the cold light of morning
You're drunk sick from whoring and high
Staring back from the mirrors
A face that you don't recognize

It's a loser a sinner a cock and a dildos disguise
In the cold light

Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Tomorrow
As your skin starts to scratch
And wave yesterdays action goodbye

Forget past indiscretions
And stolen possessions.
You're high
In the cold light of day

Tomorrow's only a king
Whistle [Repeats]
Away

In the cold light of day

    My InterpretationI don't think this song provides a helpful answer to the question it raises: How to deal with falling back on things you don't want yourself to do anymore?

    Basically it's saying: 'Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle, whistle away' meaning you can still change tomorrow.

    But that's just trying to avoid the situation at hand.

    The protagonist dislikes who he has become: all the drugs and the whoring and the pretending to be someone he's not ('a cock in a dildo's disguise') when in truth he's a loser who can't even lead a normal life (waking up in the morning yawning as everybody else does).

    So all he does is trying to forget the last night and hoping that 'tomorrow' will be better.

    So that means he's basically not mature enough to see the consequences of his/her actions and they need a better understanding of the world.

    They lack a mentor and some guidance to make better decisions, and I guess as soon as the protagonist will experience misfortune, they will fall.
