"High" as written by James Eric Sellers, Walter Flakus, Andy Kubiszewski and Christopher Hall....
I can't hide it
I can't find it
When every nerve is
Crying out for release

I can't capture
The rapture
That passion that is
Burning inside me

I've lost so much
Chasing the perfect high
I've lost so much
I've never been as high as I was with you

Never been so high
I've never been as high as I was with you
I finally realized that's a perfect high
That's a perfect high

This hunger
It consumes me
I lost my soul as you came rushing
In my veins

A pathetic
Little junkie
But I'm the whore
That needs it one last time

I've lost so much
Chasing the perfect high
I've lost so much
That's a perfect high

    General CommentSorry XoxKeLxoX, but you seem to be quite blind, it's not about him choosing drugs over his girlfriend, it's a metaphor of him comparing his girlfriend to a drug. "I've never been as high as I was with you, I finally realized that's a perfect high." He is saying that she is a drug to him, he's addicted to her and just needs her. He's been chasing after this "perfect high" and he's "lost so much" while chasing her, but he knows she's gone. Wow, they're lyrics and music is just so mesmerizing. Wish I could've seen em in concert b4 they broke up. Damn. Maybe they'll get back together one day... *sigh* I can always hope, right?

    General Commentme tall i ca that seems right but i have a different idea. i dont care if its wrong its just what i think it is. ok so here it goes:

    hes tried to stop doing this drug for a long time and once he finally did, he went back to doing it agian cuz "hes lost so mcuh chasing the perfect high" but then he realized that it was the perfect high. hes falling back into his old footsteps again. once he finally does it again he feels better.

    alrgiht that took forever to type. &like i sed before i dont fucking care if its wrong or right its just what i always thought it was. you can agree or disagree.

    General CommentBeing a junkie, i must say this song describes so well the feelings of a heroin addict. that might not be what it's about but to me it will always be a song about heroin.

    This hunger
    It consumes me
    I lost my soul as you came rushing
    In my veins
    A pathetic
    Little junkie

    this speaks to me.

    good song regardless of what it's "supposed" to mean.

    General Commentme_tall_i_ca came to the same conclusion I did. I think he was comparing an amazing relationship to a heroin high or something. It really is a great metaphor. And I agree that they were and amazing band and I really, really hope they get together again someday. It is so sad that they broke up the same year they released my favorite album of ANY band!
