The song is about two alcoholics with a codependency relationships.
The chemical is used to induce false tears and what Gavin is basically saying is that during the time he was doing herion with his bitch, he was pulling away. The lines, "I needed you more
when we wanted us less..." he was referring to his drug of choice not any of his girlfriends. Don't let the days go by, was when he was going through rehab and had a refresh look on his life.
"If I treated you bad you bruise my face couldn't love you more you got a beautiful taste." He was referring to when they would get high, they would often fight. But she knew how to get the best herion, hence the beautiful taste. All accounts were from a friend of mine who had live with Gavin several years while in London.
Me and my Exboyfriend have been through a lot of stuff but im still crazy for him, and im pretty sure the feelings mutual. I'm moving to Tennessee in five days and he came down to see me two days ago so we could spend some time together one last time. We heard this song and at the same time both said "i love this song!" The last time we had together flew by so fast and we really connected again. I put Glycerine on my myspace profile and when i went to his it was on there as well =[[
i definitely think the song is about not knowing what you have until its gone, and regretting letting what you had slip away.
and thats definitely how it went for us...
"Don't let the days go by."
Glycerine as it is also called is a suger alcohol. How do you make alcohol? Through a process of refinement. "Could have been easier on you." But you wouldn't have that "...beautiful taste."
Don't let the days go by.
But somehow mainstream F.M. makes it a hit. Honestly it just doesn't go anywhere. Music is a celebration not a place to settle into a depression abyss. I check out the local scene and players today are way more advanced in technical & skill than when I started. But It seems rare when they use it. There's just to many people are lip syncing and being called an artist. I don't know why in todays generation that this is acceptable. I'd really like to hear a good rockin song again.
Glycerine is a chemical used to create false tears. I believe the song is about someone being false in a relationship he symbolizes it by the constant contradictions in the lyrics.

it's not my kind not my time to wonder why. everything's gone white and everything's grey" and "now your here now you away. I don't want this, remember that." reflects how shes there when she wants me but shes gone when she doesnt. "Don't let the days go by" is me telling myself to move on but something is still holding me back.
