Here, you focus
So I can see your faces
The eyes are wrong

How will I know if it's working right?

Light confuses
The tiny isles of bruises
The mangled lines
I see the signs of aging

But if I try to feel at all
I am deceived
My mind's affected
It's empty now
As I lay down
I feel alright
My heart is racing

Turn the noise on
(The noise on)
I'd like to feed my poison
(My poison)
Assembly lines

Carry a velvet warning
To the yard
It's just like striking matches
The polish lies

But it's working in your blood
(Working in your blood)
Which you know is not the same as love
love is only in your mind
(Is only in your mind)
And not your heart

No, it's working

But it's working in your blood
(Working in your blood)
Which you know is not the same as love
love is only in your mind
(Is only in your mind)
And not your heart

Repeat 2x

But it's working in your blood
(Working in your blood)
Which you know is not the same as love
love is only in your mind
(Only in your mind)

    I think that this song is about his experience with MDMA. He speaks vaguely about how this isn't actually true love, but these things are all felt in the same place, so the feeling is the same. The song follows his progression of feeling and analysis. As he goes through the experience the song flows to reflect the energy and intensity that he feels. This emotion is intermixed with his own personal introspection and commentary.
