Just like the lyrics of Blink-182’s song. This is my life in a nutshell when it comes to relationships ending. This probably applies to a good amount of other people as well. I’m going to try and pick the words apart and explain what I think they mean. Music video link from YouTube is at the bottom.
Hello there the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
-To me, this interprets I think the obvious. The angel would be his ex girlfriend that he is constantly thinking about and is causing him so much pain.
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack and Sally if we want
-To me, “the victim of darkness” is referring to depression. Jack and Sally would mean living like the average, normal couple. Depending on how you define normal.
Where you can always find me
And we’ll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we’ll wish this never ends
We’ll wish this never ends
-Here I believe he is saying that he will always be available to her. That they can do whatever they want (Halloween on Christmas). The last part meaning that they will be so happy, and well, they won’t want it to end.
Where are you and I’m so sorry
I cannot sleep I cannot dream tonight
I need somebody and always
-This part I think is obvious as well. He is sitting and waiting for her return. Apologizing over and over for his mistakes and maybe what she was put through. All of this together, keeps him from sleeping at night. “Needing somebody and always” can be interpreted as him being a serial monogamist or he just doesn’t want to be lonely anymore.
This sick strange darkness
Comes creeping on so haunting every time
And as I stared I counted
The Webs from all the spiders
-Again, I think we see the depression and hurt affecting him every time she pops into his head. The webs could be he can’t think clearly because of how he feels.
Catching things and eating their insides
Like indecision to call you
and hear your voice of treason
Will you come home and stop the pain tonight
Stop this pain tonight
-At this point, his thought of her, are eating him up and adding/causing the pain. He doesn’t know whether he should call her or not, hoping to hear her give in to him and come back to stop the pain.
Don’t waste your time on me you’re already
The voice inside my head (I miss you miss you)
-This is where I had to really think. My thoughts are that she isn’t coming back. Therefore, he is using reverse psychology on her. Kind of Jedi mind tricking her. Basically saying “he couldn’t possibly be more hurt.” Kind of daring her to see for herself. Wanting her to see that things would be the way they were before his sickness. In the end, still reminding her that he misses her.
This would describe my last relationship to the T! How I felt, where I was and so on. Just follow the song and you will see.
