A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend with weed is better
A friend with breasts and all the rest
A friend who's dressed in leather

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who'll tease is better
Our thoughts compressed
Which makes us blessed
And makes for stormy weather

(Dawning, skins crawling)
(Dawning)

A friend in need's a friend indeed
My Japanese is better
And when she's pressed she will undress
And then she's boxing clever

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who bleeds is better
My friend confessed she passed the test
And we will never sever

Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who'll tease is better
Our thoughts compressed
Which makes us blessed
And makes for stormy weather

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend who bleeds is better
My friend confessed she passed the test
And we will never sever

Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Day's dawning, skins crawling
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning
Pure morning

A friend in need's a friend indeed
My Japanese is better
And when she's pressed she will undress
And then she's boxing clever

A friend in need's a friend indeed
A friend with weed is better
A friend with breasts and all the rest
A friend who's dressed in leather

    My InterpretationI think this song is referring to the use of Methamphetamine. It is full of so many references that refer to it. First and foremost, the chorus. "Day's dawning, skins crawling, Pure morning" The day is dawning after being up all night, skin crawling is a common association with Meth use, the user thinks that bugs are crawling under their skin. Pure morning refers to the user ingesting the pure meth (not cut) to get through the day.

    The references to the female friend, is in reference to a female accomplice who scores off him in return for sex. "And when she's pressed she will undress,
    And then she's boxing clever" means that when she has no meth she will come to him and undress and seduce him for her fix without giving away her intentions. "A friend with weed is better" simply refers to him wanting the friend to bring weed as it will help him to relax and boost the euphoria after ingesting the meth. The reference to passing the test and also the bleeding is in reference to a pregnancy scare, possibly with another man ("And we will never sever"), or possibly with him as inhibitions are non-existent whilst on methamphetamine.

    "Our thoughts compressed", may be in reference to the fact that whilst using meth, your focus is only taken up by the thing you are currently doing at the time. For example, if you are being seduced, your entire thought process is taken over by sex. "It makes us blessed" I guess could refer to being blessed in a heavenly euphoric state and having each other to enjoy. "And makes for stormy weather" Could refer to the time shortly after after their bender sexcapade. It could be either about them fighting because she thinks she may be pregnant, or that they feel like rubbish after using hard for a while.

    Sorry if this is too jumbled up
