Hands Like Houses – Don't Look Now, I'm Being Followed. Act Normal lyrics

Is this the edge of the world?
We chased the horizon down 'til it hung beneath our feet.
Now I'm drifting blind (all I know is we can't move closer).

I've never seen the lights of the north,
The constellations are so unfamiliar.

We followed far, as far as this machinery takes us,
To some imaginary place. Where the compass shifts,
And our lips drift to out cheeks.
Is this the edge of the world? (All I know is we can't move closer)

I've never seen the lights of the north,
The constellations are so unfamiliar.

Searching for some apparent place where floated needles decided the way.
I'd dig in my heels but I might crack the ice.
Give me some solid ground!

The frost is sinking in, in my cheeks, in my chest, in my fingertips.
'Desperation', we name every cape beyond the last.
Frozen senseless, every day is a winter solstice.
The view's a wonder, but I can't take it in.
Is this the edge of the world?

I've never seen the lights of the north,
The constellations are so unfamiliar.

Sun, make canvas of coastlines, so I know where I stand.
Make canvas of coastlines, so I know where I stand.
Make canvas of coastlines, so I know where I stand.
Make canvas of coastlines...

I've never seen the lights of the north,
The constellations are so unfamiliar.
So unfamiliar.
So unfamiliar.
So unfamiliar.
So unfamiliar...

    I interpret this song about getting high and how it feels.
    "The frost is sinking in, in my cheeks, in my chest, in my fingertips."

    It hit me when the line "Searching for some apparent place where floated needles decided the way." "Needles" being heroine syringes.

    Then "I'd dig in my heels but I might crack the ice. Give me some solid ground!" meaning the substance has taken effect and the person is already under the influence.

    Some context like "I've never seen the lights of the north, The constellations are so unfamiliar" means that the proponent is now experiencing hallucinations.
