Chemicals keep me under control

Sleeping at the wheel
I can't feel my face
Maybe it's better this way
My stomach's twisted, all tied up in knots
And I'm feeling like I don't want this
Killing time as the clock goes
Tick tock, tick tock
They'll never keep you away from me
I know where you'll be tomorrow
What difference does it make to you?
I don't care ain't got the time
Winning the race for another line
It's written in my mind
Just to get it all away from me
Away from me
'Cause I think I'm falling

'Cause I think I'm falling
Falling out of touch with life
And I'm thinking it's all just a big mistake
I think I'm falling
Falling, out of touch with life
So what have I been telling myself?

Must be the rage deep down inside of me
Eating me away
Eating me away
Feelings are so vague, so wrong
So what have I been telling myself?

So I've been chosen
To be the victim of
Your misery
That's right I'm frozen
Chemicals keep me under control
So cold from all the ice and amphetamines
That I just might make you think

That Jesus was your middle name
As though it seems to be an act of God
But for now go ahead and believe what
You want to believe
'Cause I think I'm falling

'Cause I think I'm falling
Falling out of touch with life
And I'm thinking it's all just a big mistake
I think I'm falling
Falling out of touch with life
So what have I been telling myself

Must be the rage deep down inside of me
Eating me away
Eating me away
Feelings are so vague
So wrong
So what have I been telling myself?
Must be the rage deep down inside of me
Eating away
Eating me away
Feelings are so vague
So what have I been telling myself?

Myself
You know what kills me?
Chemicals keep me under control

Why is everybody hooked on
When you feel so desperate you got your grip on me
I take away all the trust and all the sympathy

Why is everybody hooked on everybody else

I'll guess I'll never understand it
Come and fill your head with lies
No I can't explain
Why everyone seems so vague

Must be the rage deep down inside of me
Eating me away
Eating me away
Feelings are so vague
So what have I been telling myself?

Feelings are so vague
So what have I been telling myself?

Must be the rage deep down inside of me
Eating away
Eating me away
Feelings are so vague
So what have I been telling myself?
Deep Inside it's eating me away
Feelings are so vague
Feelings are so vague

    General CommentWell lets see here, i think what this song would be in refference of going nuts and barely hanging on to sanity. so he drinks or gets drunk hence the "i cant feel my face" and he's completely obssessed with this one chick so since he is going nuts hes gonna go see her simply because he can.

    General CommentBash me all you want but I think Jay has gotten lazy with his lyrics... Candyass had a lot of good lyrics but as the new albums starting coming out it seems as if he's losing it. "Sleeping at the wheel, I can't feel my face"? Obviously you're not gonna feel it, you're sleeping... I dunno... The song has awesome music to it, it just think Jay's lyrics are beginning to go to shit...

    General Commenti think his lyrics arnt going to shit
    sleeping at the wheel to me means
    you arnt in control of your life
    it's controling you
    so you take drugs or whichever to numb yourself
    from the pain of it or to keep you calm
    the whole son is awsome musically and lyrically

    My InterpretationPretty sure this is about drug abuse. Can't feel his face, chasing a line. That's coke. Seems straight-forward. Lyrics seem like he's struggling with addiction and he has to do this to feel normal but he's realizing that he's self-medicating to suppress emotions and becoming dull to them. He sees other people express themselves without this dependence, he can barely remember what it's like to be in touch with his emotions anymore. Hence, why things are vague. At the start it's like the addiction or drugs are talking to him, saying he can't avoid the temptation to use.
