i've got
new sunglasses
and i've got
backstage passes
for y'all
girls with fine asses
yeah oh yeah
sunshine, girlies and money
what it takes to get me on a roll
some call me mr. soul

i went to this party
the other night
said i want to feel
what my brain had felt like
i grabbed my bottle
and i start drinkin' wine
i thought pretty soon
that i would be
feelin' fine
but no i couldn't get high
oh no
and then I couldn't get high
oh no
and then i
dont know why

threw down the bottle
and then i whipped out my pipe
stuffed it full of goodies
and then i gave that shit a light
i huffed and i puffed
good lord i
smoked and i choked
i smoking for so long
until my heart was nearly broke
because i couldn't get high
oh no
and then i
couldn't get high
oh no
and then i
try i tried

i threw down the pipe
just as pissed as i could be
gobbled down a mound of some
lsd
i waited and i waited
for my body to zing
i waited i waited
but not a fucking thing
because i couldn't get high
oh no
and then i
couldn't get high
oh no
lord i
dont know why

    General CommentLooks like he is having a hard time getting high. It's bitch not to be wasted. Just being sober damn it.
    Sounds like he is not having a good time.

    General Commentyour an idiot cbachmann.... the songs the way it says .... he wanted to get mangled but he couldn't... its like the 1st time you smoke weed(for most people) you don't get high no matter how much you smoke.

    General CommentCbachmann is closest.. He is singing the song because nothing gets him high like marijuana does.

    General CommentIts basically about doing the same old things you do, and then one day you may not realise it, but ur bored of it already. That is why it doesnt intrigue you the way it used to.

    Remember the first time you got REEEEAAAALLLLLYYYYYYY fucking baked.... no not first time u smoked bud, but the first time you smoked so much... like fuckin twackked off your face? Yeah. Try comparing it to when u toke now... that high back then was more like a psychedelic journey than the mellow out u get now.

    General Commentwow Sublimedude1992, how about being even a tiny bit open minded. I know slightly's songs are usually pretty straight forward, but I also agree with Cbachmann in some way. at least its one way to interpret the song. clearly its about trying to get fucked up but nothing is working, but it could be viewed as a metaphor for not being able to shake a feeling with substances.

    All that aside, why even come on a site like this where the whole idea is to discuss one anothers interpretations of songs, just to rudely and stubbornly say that it only means what the lyrics explicitly state. we could all figure out that much on our own, we come here to see what more there could be to it. try opening your mind up to new ideas. its nice.
