Salt And The Sea Lyrics
The is about opioid addiction.
Its about fighting the temptation and then giving in
“ Could it be I was the one that you held so deep in the night
On the back staircase you fell to your knees with tears in your eyes”
This is addiction talking to willpower, as willpower gives in to addiction.
I'll be your friend in the daylight again
There we will be, like an old enemy
Like the salt and the sea
This about the last negotiation between addiction and willpower, addiction offers in the daylight after the high, addiction will not overwhelm willpower, but as the hours wear, the fight will then ensue again.
“And they wrote all these prescriptions, they wrote me off
Like a heel
Yeah, the doctors with their medicine left me
To rock in my filth”
Let’s make it clear, this is started as an opiate pain prescription , that turns into an addiction no one cares to help clean up!
I can go more but you see where this is going...

I think that he is talking about a girl who he fell in love with. He broke her heart and she almost couldn’t handle it. This relationship is beginning to cause the artist anxiety, this is The Who that he is speaking of when he is talking about nobody being home. All he wants is to be friends with the girl again, he is even willing to take the blame for everything that caused their relationship to fall apart hence “if you need a villain just give me a name.” The whole gist is that if he could just be friends with this girl again, his mental state would be much better, medicine isn’t going to fix him, just restoring the relationship.
