Hell and Back Lyrics
She is wretched but she comforts me
After everyone goes home
She's always there for me
And when the sun goes hellbound
And the moon does resurrect the night
I'll hide within her
Not much good has come...

I think it's about addiction. Or possibly any kind of bad habit, but addiction seems to fit best.
If you assume "She" is the drug or whatever addictive/abusive habit, the song really makes sense. And I think the repeated journey to Hell and back is about how the person may be sober throughout the day, but every night, goes to Hell by abusing their drugs, only to carry on with their life the following day.

My interpretation might be wrong but it seems like this song is about someone who has lived a bad lifestyle so long that they not only predict bad things, but comfort and accept them.. and know right where to go when they are at there lowest. because the "not much good has come out of the light" it really seems like whatever the songs about.. or the person they're singing about a self destructive person who is just in a cycle of bad things... someone whom is really familiar with it too.
