"Bottom Of A Bottle" as written by and Derek Gledhill Sean Danielson....
Been scared and lonely
I've asked myself is something wrong with you
My girlfriend told me
I need some time alone to deal with issues

But something makes me carry on
It's difficult to understand
Why I always want to fly

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom of a bottle

You always call me
And ask me how I make it through the day
I'm always fallin'
I guess it's just god's way of making me pay

But something makes me carry on
It's difficult to understand, why I always want to fly

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom of a bottle
I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom of a bottle

When I, I wonder why I try
And I, I wonder why I bother
And I, I wonder why I cry
Why I, I go through all this trouble

I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom of a bottle
I do it for the drugs
I do it just to feel alive
I do it for the love
That I get from the bottom of a bottle

    General Commenti read somewhere that in the song when he says i do it for the drugs its a metaphor or symbolic he means things that make people carry on drugs,alcohol,women,music anything and for him its music i guess what its symbolic of is things that numb you

    General CommentI remember reading something where the lead singer guy said that he was sick of potheads coming up to him and saying "yea, i do it for the drugs too!" because the song was not about drugs... I'm pretty sute that wiredmonkiekiller is right about the song's meaning.

    General CommentIt took me forever who figured out who sang this song. I never could pick out the voice to figure out who the band was. But I think this song basically describes itself. No hidden meaning... not to me at least.

    General Commentyea the part that goes:
    "You always call me
    And ask me how I make it throught the day
    I'm always fallin
    I guess it's just god's way of
    Making me big" is wrong....it's:

    "You always call me
    And ask me how I make it throught the day
    I'm always fallin
    I guess it's just god's way of
    Making me BEG"

    yea and this song kicks ass :-)

    General Commentwow, this song is definitely bad ass. i never considered it a radio song but i heard it on my radio once at 4:30 a.m. the lyrics definitely coincide with the music itself. good good song.

    General Commentokay this song is cool because the guy says he's doing it for the drugs. thats just funny somehow. let's be real, the guy is just telling us he likes to smoke it up. rock on fellow pot head. rock on.
