Whoops I OD'd, shortness of breath, call ambulance, tell my wife i love her
error in judgement cut my life, no second chance,no guiding light
i never meant to cause you pain
i never thought i'd be the one who took the fall
i got lost in the moment, assholes like to test the limit

six minutes down, breathing machine, brain not feel right
the look on you is killing me, drowning in shame
but don't feel bad, cuz i never feard consequences
hate regrets more than apologies

a year has passed, like photographs, my life is just
a scrapbook of old friends and faded memories
looks like i pulled the rub out from under myself
the falls too much for me to recover from

it's been real fun but now i must say goodbye, I'll see you all at Okie Dogs


Lyrics submitted by rjbucs28

Whoops, I OD'd song meanings

    General CommentYou know, this could just be a clever joke. OD'd meaning ate some fuckin' ace food at Okie Dogs, overreacted, and the song is how he felt after his delicious meal.

    General Commenti think this song is pretty much self explaining, OD'd as we all know is an overdose of drugs, he just got lost in the moment, assholes like to test the limit.. and to mattschick07 i don't think the lyric is wrong.. caus when you buy the record 'war on errorism' that litle book with lyrics and stuff that come along doesn't say the lyrics right.. That's just fat mikes way of doing it, changing the lyrics here and there to make it easyer to understand what the song is about

    General CommentI think this is what's going through the OD'ed guy's mind. When you OD the blood flow to your brain is restricted and a lot of your brain cells die. Most who survive them end up with severe mental handicaps and would probably think in broken fragments of thoughts

    General Commenti think the last part of the song is the most important, because it says exactly that life's too precious to be wasted by an overdose, and one year after it happened, his life is just a memory...

    brilliant.. i wanna be barried with this song playing
