TUNE Sunflies - High Times
This song is about denial. You can fool yourself into thinking you're having a the time of your life when you're at your lowest ebb. I don't mind disclosing that I went through a period (after a very bad relationship break up) of going out and getting smashed every night, bringing home different women and thinking I had it all sussed out; but then I realised it was a very lonely, soulless existence of no sustainable happiness. There's also a kind of angel/devil thing going on, so where I first say "add to his pain, follow me" that's kind of the devil saying "renounce God and do whatever gratifies your base instincts", whilst later in the song it's like God saying "shame the devil, turn your back on him and do the right thing". How's that for a Catholic upbringing?
