What to do when you’re high
This is mine and you’re right
Never make water rough
Never say “I’m a drunk”
When they say “you’re alive”
Is that all, boring tide
Water bomb and a safe place to hide

A mistake done with knees
Just to move, not to please
Going through the idiots guide

    General CommentThese lyrics look wrong in places to me, and here is what I always thought he was saying..

    What do when you're high
    This is mine, and you're right
    Never make water rough
    Never say I'm a drunk
    When they say, "You're alright"
    Is that all? Boring tide
    Water bong, and a safe place to hide

    A mistake, done with ease
    Just to move, not to please
    Going through the idiots guide

    General CommentIts just ironic if you listen to this song stoned. you seem to hear the real situation of your life caused by something that you use to trick your mind always again to the same "perfect" state of peace in a single moment of your life. But when your getting down you realize the "mistake, done with ease".
    "Just to move, not to please"
    Just to stay alive through the endless days but never get enough drugs to keep the good feelings of an high in comparison with the idiot mistakes that happen in your real life.
    the first part perhaps has a connection to the mass stupid folks abusing alcohol but getting accepted in the society
    "Never say I'm a drunk. When they say, "You're alright"
    Persons that know other drugs well, cant accpet the senseless boring abuse of alcohol anymore and prefer a drug like hash but cant get accepted. Trying to find a save place alone with the drug.
    "Is that all? Boring tide
    Water bong, and a safe place to hide"

    btw If you found this songs cause of the brillant lyrics the I recommend to search the song "pure narcotic" of porcupine tree.
    peace

    General Commenti agree with the lyric corrections except

    When they say, "you're alright"

    its actually easy to hear that its "alive".
