"50 Million Year Trip (Downside Up)" as written by and Joshua Michael Homme....
I am drinking
I am rolling (you can't stop me)
I am hiding
I am running (you can't stop me)

But I'll never forget you (anyway)
But I'll never forget you (anyway)
But I'll never forget you (anyway)
But I'll never forget you

I am drinking
I am rolling (you can't stop me)
I am running
I am rolling (you can't stop me)

But I'll never forget you anyway
But I'll never forget you anyway
But I'll never forget you anyway
But I'll never forget you

See our family to realize
As it's running down today
I love the city love the day

No fool for you
In this I am
I'm never gonna run about

    General Commentomg i can't believe people don't post about kyuss, they r so great, but more people post about dashborad 'shit' confessional. its so trip this song, and i think myself its about someone who is jsut running away from everything, and is drinking his problems away
    I am drinking
    I am rolling (you can't stop me)
    I am hiding
    I am running (you can't stop me)
    he could be talkin about his family, or the city he lives in, jsut running away from all the problems the city has or teh problems he has with his family.
    thats my thrughts on it. prob wrong about the meanin vo :)

    General CommentI always understood:

    "It didnt take me long to realize
    That the world isnt meant for me"

    It very clearly talks about the drug escapism, hence the title.

    General CommentI don't know how the lyrics are so wrong at the end. It should go:

    "Soon I came to realize as his world began to turn
    That river was heading to return
    A fool realease I am
    From the corner of your mouth
    Fight this, man"

    General CommentI think this album have lots of songs that may reffer to anger against drug abuse...
    downside up must mean that the conclusion is in fact the end of the song, and the rest would be just the introduction

    just a tought..

    General Commentkyuss really rocks, opiumforthepeople's explanation sounds the most honest to me, and kyuss is clearly much of a drug influenced band so I guess it'a about drug escapism

    kyuss kicks ass

    General CommentGreat song. I love the psychedelic conclusion - I could literally listen to it forever.

    I don't think the lyrics are right here either, but judging from the title and the first half, I'm guessing that this is about fighting an addiction, and, ultimately, failing due to the memories spent and attached to the drug (probably teh_weed).
