Hozier – Sedated lyrics

Just a little rush, babe
To feel dizzy, to derail the mind of me
Just a little hush, babe
Our veins are busy but my heart's in atrophy
Any way to distract and sedate
Adding shadows to the walls of the cave

You and I nursing on a poison that never stung
Our teeth and lungs are lined with the scum of it
Some whiff of this death and guts
We are deaf, we are numb
Free and young and we can feel none of it


Something isn't right, babe
I keep catching the words but the meaning's thin
I'm somewhere outside my life, babe
I keep scratching but somehow I can't get in
So we're slaves to any semblance of touch
Lord we should quit but we love it too much

Sedated we're nursing on a poison that never stung
Our teeth and lungs are lined with the scum of it
Some whiff of this death and guts
We are deaf, we are numb
Free and young and we can feel none of it

Darlin', don't you, stand there watching, won't you
Come and save me from it

Darlin', don't you, join in, you're supposed to
Drag me away from it


Any way to distract and sedate
Adding shadows to the walls of the cave

You and I nursing on a poison that never stung
Our teeth and lungs are lined with the scum of it
Some whiff of this death and guts
We are deaf, we are numb
Free and young and we can feel non of it

Sedated we're nursing on a poison that never stung
Our teeth and lungs are lined with the scum of it
Some whiff of this death and guts
We are deaf, we are numb
Free and young and we can feel none of it

    I think this song has alot of meanings towards it depending on the person who is listening to it, it captures alot. I feel like this song is about drug addiction as well as being deeply addicted to the person whom he\she loves. He's describing his pain through a love that os meant to be good but yet can be so evil. Same with drugs. It makes us feel soo good yet it kills us without us feeling it.

    In an interview Hozier says it's about entitlement. And how we can be so lucky to live this American dream but so many of us have to take antidepressants or drugs to distract us from the terrible things in the world. It's crazy how we can be well off here but have such a need to sedate.
