Up 'til four, and it ain't New Year's
Fucked up on Rhapsody and root beer
Got a brain, but I can't use it
Living on just air and music

Well, you don't have to tell me
I know this can't be healthy

But I am not your kind of dope fiend
I have my own kind of protein
I just can't get my mom to believe me
I'm not on drugs
But I probably should be

These days I am in fragments
These days I am a magnet
Seems like when I walk the streets
Everybody wants a piece of me

Hands full and pockets empty
The deck is stacked against me

Right about now I should be scared
It's all coming down, but I still can't care
And I get so stuck when I get in deep
I don't know what to do
But fall asleep

Or stay up 'til four when it ain't New Year's
Fucked up on Rhapsody and root beer
Got a brain, but I can't use it
Living on just air and music

Well, you don't have to tell me
I know this can't be healthy

But I am not your kind of dope fiend
I have my own kind of protein
I just can't get my mom to believe me
I'm not on drugs
But I probably should be

    General Commenti relate to this except i am a drug addict. but my addiction is because of my bass guitar. i wait every night till my mum goes to bed before i sneak out the back door to suck down a spliff and then spend the following hours playing my bass. i rarely make it to 4 though. normally pass out between 1 and 2

    General CommentI think this is about being depressed. Generally depressed people are distant, isolate themselves, suffer from insomnia or like to sleep a lot .

    "Up 'til four, and it ain't New Year's"

    He's up til 4 because he can't sleep.

    "Living on just air and music"
    When I was depressed music was my best friend.

    People probably think he is stoned. Because just lays about doing nothing. But he thinks he might need some drugs. Maybe for the depression. I don't know if he thinks he needs legit anti depressants or he just wants to escape with recreational drugs. But all he can do is sleep it away. I don't understand the I have my own kind of protein lyric.

    General CommentI know songwriters are supposed to be open to people interpreting their lyrics any number of ways, but: no.

    I'll post a detailed explanation of the lyrics at our website (freesoda.tk) when we put up the MP3. Stay tuned.

    General Commentthis song is about people who like to vandalize abondoned buildings. think about it.

    It could also make a second refrenence to showing hate for the "?" on a computer keyboard, but more metaphors give evidence to the above.
