"Slow Divers" as written by Perry Farrell, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins and Eric Adam Avery....
She said, do you think you could?
And I said, yeah, in a second. . .
I'm sitting by a waterfall and when the people jump in
They hold their nose and kiss these walls
Granite walls, water-polished walls
Just don't ever want to move from this spot
You can sit here for so long!
There's a slide, suislide, you can live or die
Going down, going down, go down!
Boy came to the side
I said, "You want to go down that slide?"
He said, "No man, hey you got a joint to sell me?"
We just smoked one, we got a roach we said. . ."I'll smoke the roach!"
But first go down that slide man
Go on down, go on down, go on down!
I'm sitting by a waterfall. . .
Could bear to watch the people sit and fall
You know the plants on the rocks are crazy
Thinking that they could start a life
On the spiral walls of a waterfall!
Slow divers?
Their view is spectacular!

    General CommentThis is a neat song. It appears to be about herion use, but it reads like an afternoon in a place of paradise. It really sort of captures the warmth of the world that herion may put you in and not ever wanting to leave.

    Just don\'t ever want to move from this spot
    You can sit here for so long!
    There\'s a slide, suislide
    You can live or die
    Going up, going down!

    Meaning not wanting to come down, but how you can go either way at any time.

    Slow divers
    Their view is spectacular!

    I\'m reading this to be like people who can stay in the \'good place\' without dropping down get the best from the drug.

    General Commenti love this song
    i fell in love with this song as and addict
    for me its about heroin and all the good things about the drug that get you hooked
    then you go "sliding" down the tubes
    when i was locked up i used to make my girlfiend play it for my through the phone
    it still evokes such emotion in me athough i am clean ten years now
    a true classic
