The Last Kiss


Hung in your room, swaying, hoping only that you'll see. All by myself, I'm alone in such poor company. The deeper I think, the deeper I seem to sink, I can't stop the insects that are feeding, pull the needles from beneath my skin. I broke myself, shattered, tied a bow around every peice. You'll love the eyes. Have they always shown so vacantly? The more I show the less you'll want to know. I can't stop the insects that are feeding, pull the needles from beneath my skin. Now I'm on display. I am becoming. Hurt myself today. It's all for you. Do you like what I'm becoming? Cut myself today. It's all for you. I part the night, flashing, approaching as I watch you flee. Pushed through your panes. Seems I've landed quite uncomfortably. But as I pass through souls of broken glass I can't stop the insects that are feeding. Pull the needles from beneath my skin. Please don't ask me what I think, trust me, you don't want to know. Please don't ask me to open up, trust me, trust me, 'cause I can't.

From first listen I assumed this song was about a relationship. I still think this but possibly there are drug references within the song. For example: "vacantly" and the "needles" reference as well. Dave is sxe(refrains from drug taking) so that must refer to the other person in the song.
The more obvious interpretation is that the song is about how Dave is in a relationship and how its falling apart. He seems to suggest that he has a lot of emotional baggage he cant get rid of, thats what i think the "cant stop the insects that are feeling" and "the more I show, the less you'll want to know" lines mean. Perhaps the needles beneath his skin is also another reference to being held down and always in pain. The only way to get away from it is to confront it.
The window metaphor is great imagery. This suggests to me that Dave can see the happy relationship but when he tries to get it, there is a barrier which is hard to break without a lot of pain. This also works as referring to the partner who finds it hard to show their feelings.
The chorus "now im on display, i am becoming" suggests Davey is taking a risk, risking being really hurt perhaps.
The song doesnt seem to end on any more a postitive note and Davey says he still cant open up.
