Lyrics and explanation


Meds 2006 - Placebo

Lyrics : Placebo
In the Cold Light of Morning
In the cold light of morning,
While everyone's yawning,
You're high,
In the cold light of morning,
The party gets boring,
You're high,
As your skin starts a scratchin',
Wave yesterday's action goodbye,
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions,
You're high.

In the cold light

In the cold light of morning,
While everyone's yawning,
You're high,
In the cold light of morning,
You're drunksick from whoring,
And high,
Staring back from the mirror's a face
That you don't recognise,
It's a loser, a sinner,
a cock in a dildo's disguise,

In the cold light

Tomorrow (x3)

As your skin starts a scratchin',
Wave yesterdays action goodbye,
Forget past indiscretions and stolen possessions,
You're high.
In the cold light of day,
Tomorrow's only a kettle whistle, whistle [x 8],
Away

In the cold light of day.
Press Quotes
(Translation, quote in French here)

"It's a musical tribute to Leonard Cohen. It's about drugs, being completely fucked, a bit like
Pure Morning. It is 7am in the morning, everyone is off to work and you, you're just wandering the streets. You get home, you look at yourself in the mirror and you say 'Why am I like this? I promised myself never to do this again and here I am again." You feel marginal, aside the planet. The rest of the world is living, doing their job, and you, you were decadent and lenient towards yourself. You are not happy about it, you look at yourself in the mirror and you think "I hate you, I can't stand you anymore."

Brian Molko, Rock Mag April 2006



Radio interview XFM
In The Cold Light Of Morning’ [listen]
“Very much inspired by Leonard Cohen and being on the streets early in the morning after a night out when everyone else is going to work.”

Brian Molko, XFM, March 2006


Bionic : Which Placebo's song would you like to listen covered by another band? And which band would that be?
Stefan : I would like Gotan Project to cover ‘In the Cold light of Morning”.
