Oh well oh well so here we stand
But we stand for nothing
My heart calls to me in my sleep
Now can I turn to it
Cause I'm all locked up in this
Dark place -- and I do not know
I'm as good as dead
My head aches -- warped and tied up
I need to kill...

    The song is about heroin addiction and dying from an overdose.
    My great escape
    Take this needle from my vein
    My body goes cold
    I see heaven

    I heard a long time ago that a family member of Dave's had died from an overdose. I'm not sure if it's true but I think it may have been his aunt.

    Its about doing your head in over nothing. Its the constant stream of mostly negative thoughts that make you imobilized and you just want it to stop.
