I agree it certainly feels like it although stuff on the net says he was talking about his drug addiction, it feels very vividly like the pain of watching someone suffering and dying that you love and wanting to commit suicide afterwards.

Lyrics

All this talk of getting old
It's getting me down my love
Like a cat in a bag waiting to drown
This time I'm comin' down
And I hope you're thinking of me
As you lay down on your side
Now the drugs don't work
They just make you worse
But I know I'll see your face again
Now the drugs don't work
They just make you worse
But I know I'll see your face again
But I know I'm on a losing streak
'Cause I passed down my old street
And if you wanna show then just let me know
And I'll sing in your ear again
Now the drugs don't work
They just make you worse
But I know I'll see your face again
'Cause baby ooh
If heaven calls I'm coming too
Just like you said
You leave my life I'm better off dead
All this talk of getting old
It's getting me down my love
Like a cat in a bag waiting to drown
This time I'm comin' down
Now the drugs don't work
They just make you worse
But I know I'll see your face again
'Cause baby ooh
If heaven calls I'm coming too
Just like you said
You leave my life I'm better off dead
But if you wanna show then just let me know
And I'll sing in your ear again
Now the drugs don't work
They just make you worse
But I know I'll see your face again
Yeah I know I'll see your face again
Yeah I know I'll see your face again
Yeah I know I'll see your face again
Aaaaah
Yeah I know I'll see your face again
Aaaaah
I'm never coming down
I'm never coming down
No more no more no more no more no more
I'm never coming down
I'm never coming down
No more no more no more no more no more
I'm never coming down
I'm never coming down
No more no more no more no more no more
I'm never coming down
I'm never coming down
No more no more no more no more no more
I'm never coming down
I'm never coming down
No more no more no more no more no more
