"Tumble In The Rough" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't live
I can't cry
I can't die
I can't walk
I can't talk
I can booze
I can booze and steal your shoes So I can move
Tumble in the rough

I'm looking for a new meditation
Still looking for a new way to fly
Don't want any plastic validation
Not looking for a new way to die

I made excuses for a million lies
But all I got was humble kidney pie
So what

I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't live
I can't cry
I can't die
I can't walk
I can't talk
I can booze
I can booze and steal your shoes So I can move
Tumble in the rough

I'm lookin' for a new stimulation
Quite bored of those inflatable ties
I'm looking for a new rock sensation
Dead fish don't swim around in jealous tides

I made excuses for a million lies
But all I got was humble kidney pie
So what

Can't live, can't buy new shoes (Tumble in the rough)
Lived on a summer with new shoes (Tumble in the rough)
Can't live, can't die - new shoes (Tumble in the rough)
Lived on a summer with new shoes (Tumble in the rough)

I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't live
I can't cry
I can't die
I can't walk
I can't talk
I can booze
I can booze and steal your shoes So I can move
Tumble in the rough

I made excuses for a million lies
But all I got was humble kidney pie
I made excuses for a million lies
But all I got was humble kidney pie
So what

    General CommentIn this one, he's sayin he trying to find a new outlet besides drugs because they're fuckin him up.And hes sayin his life sucks going thru withdrawl so he feels he cant do anything like eat ,sleep,ect.He's payin the price for all the lies and excuses he made.
