NYC post-punk band
Interpol is a Post-Punk band based in New York City, United States, that took an important part in the post-punk revival of the 2000s. The band consists of Paul Banks (vocals and guitar), Sam Fogarino (drums), and Daniel Kessler (guitar and backing vocals). The band's sound is generally a mix of staccato bass and rhythmic, harmonized guitar, with a snare heavy mix, drawing comparisons to post-punk bands such as Joy Division and The Chameleons. The band formed in 1998 when Daniel Kessler met drummer Greg Drudy, previously a member of post-hardcore/screamo band Joshua Fit for Battle and Hot Cross, on the New York University campus.

One of my favorite Interpol songs. This song is vague, but I believe it's about his relationship with someone, a girl, who helped him off of cocaine as they have written about a coke addiction in the past (Rest My Chemistry). "I relied on fewer lines to let you in, become my lover." I think he's saying he became less dependent on coke lines and more dependent on who he was falling in love with. This is just my interpretation.
