Placebo – Haemoglobin lyrics

I was hanging from a tree
Unaccustomed to such violence
Jesus looking down on me
I'm prepared for one big silence

How'd I ever end up here
Must be through some lack of kindness
And it seemed to dawn on me
Haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat
Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat

At the time they cut me free
I was brimming with defiance
Doctors looking down on me
Breaking every law of science
How'd I ever end up here?
A latent strain of color blindness
Then it seemed to dawn on me
Haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat x4

Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground
Now my feet don't touch the ground

As they drag me to my feet
I was filled with incoherence
Theories of conspiracy
The whole world wants my disappearance
I'll go fighting nail and teeth
You've never seen such perseverance
Gonna make you scared of me
Cause haemoglobin is the key

Haemoglobin is the key
To a healthy heart beat x4

Now my feet don't touch the ground X8

    It's a about an OD, of a injectable drug, this is clearly shown by the references to blood, the medical references, the remarks about death, and the utter shock from the main character that he was about to die:

    "Unaccustomed to such violence
    Jesus looking down on me
    I'm prepared for one big silence"

    How'd I ever end up here now did the character change? That I can't say, is their drive to live:

    "You've never seen such perseverance
    Gonna make you scared of me"

    Or is it their drive for more drugs?
