And now.. Deep Thoughts.. with Mr Brightside.

So, I've liked this song since I first heard it on the radio, but I never really paid any attention to the lyrics until someone mentioned it.
I've come up with four possible interpretations:
  1. His girlfriend is cheating on him, and he knows about it.
  2. He thinks his girlfriend is cheating on him, and his paranoia is getting off on imagining it.
  3. He isn't dating this girl at all, but wants to.
  4. He's really bad at poly.

What do you think?

Coming out of my cage and I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta gotta be down because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I’m falling asleep and she’s calling a cab
While he’s havin' a smoke and she’s taking a drag
Now they’re going to bed and my stomach is sick
And it’s all in my head but
she’s touching his chest now
He takes off her dress now
Let me go

And I just can’t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy
Turning saints into the sea
Turning through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it’s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside

I never...
I never...
I never...
I never...
