"Trippin'" as written by Salvatore P. Erna and Tony Rombola....
Living a different way.
You can't expect
Me to be the same.
Separating our lives
And wondering why.
Face down I walk away.
Every time I think I do the right thing,
You turn your back on me.

Trippin' into a world that never seems
Too far away.
Too much time, too many
Wasted days.

How can you be this way?
Now I'm alone and
Cold today.
I'm walking dead man's drive.
Reaching out for my life.
I've been known
To fuck up everything.
In this skin there's a
Broken man.

Trippin' into a world that never seems
Too far away.
Too much time, too many
Wasted days.
Just another vision
In my world!

    General Commenti think this song is aobut a relationship, and how its not going right. the person turn there back on him and now hes "alone and cold", and doesnt know what to do. the part were he says "Trippin' into a world that never seems too far away
    Too much time, too many wasted days" means that were he wants things to be and were he wants the to go seem so close but every time hetrys to reach it he cant do it and he wastes so much time on tryign to make it work that its takign up everything else. he also implys that hes the one fuckign everytihng up and since he does that its all become a faded memory. unno that is just my opinoin on the song....also a very good song...godsmack is the shit

    General Commenti believe the song is about a person who keeps on screwing up in life in alot of catagories, and wants to escape into this imaginary world

    General CommentThe title explains it before you hear it.
    There couldn't be a clearer or more literal meaning to a song, that this is about tripping out and all the illusions that you get while influenced by drugs.
