Yo homie
Had I known you would have grown
Into a full blown example of how to act like an asshole
I never would have introduced you to booze and skipping school
Because right now I feel responsible to find an antidote
Back in junior high when you and I started getting high
Life was just a joke, we was to young to know the punchline
And you would sooner die than realize you're running out of time
Who is to decide there is no more recess after lunchtime?
Bam, here you am, intoxicated again
"Yo, how you doing man?"
Yeah, it's good to see you
Bam, here you am, intoxicated again
You used to be my man, understand?
I believe you slightly exceeded how many of them drinks that you think you need
When you are trying to boost the bonus points and reinforce your voice
But I'm not trying to walk within your obnoxiousness
We used to be friends back in the day when you had direction
But that was before your brain felt that infection
I ain't claiming innocence, I was right there with you then
But I'm just saying, when we was waiting to move up
Some of us grew up
We all knew what the difference between what wrong and right was
Sometimes the line blurred when we was influenced by a light buzz
But from what I see
You've established the persona basis
Built the foundation for emulating the general drama
Without taking the moments upon the trail of karma
That's paved through the field that you wandered
No longer am I shocked by the things you do
I'm just confused as to why it has to be me to confront you
I guess nobody else gives a damn
So I got to go up myself, because I am a man, understand?
You can take it as concern, or you can see it as your ego getting burned
Either way tonight though, one us is going to learn
And I guess nobody else gives a damn, but see I do
Because you used to be my man, understand?
Even if you beat me down to the cement, it's all love
I need to see you stick around until the end
Bam, intoxicated again, right?
Got to go up myself
Bam, because I am a man, understand?

    General CommentDefinitely, by far 1 of my favorite slug / atmosphere songs lyrically.

    "Had I known you would have grown
    Into a full blown example of how to act like an asshole
    I never would have introduced you to booze and skipping school
    Because right now I feel responsible to find an antidote
    Back in junior high when you and I started getting high
    Life was just a joke, we was to young to know the punch line
    And you would sooner die, than realize you're running out of time

    "Yo, how you doing man?"
    Yeah, it's good to see you
    Bam, here you am, intoxicated again

    Basically saying, if he knew drugs would turn his friend into what he is now, he never would have introduced him to them. He feels responsible, and because of that he wants to be the 1 to help him beat it because he feels like the 1 who caused it. Slugs saying when they were young and fucking around, it was all fun and games, but now it's not. I love the line "Who's to decide there's no more recess after lunchtime?" It basically says, who decides when it all stops being fun?

    "But I'm not trying to walk within your obnoxiousness
    We used to be friends back in the day when you had direction
    But that was before your brain felt that infection
    I ain't claiming innocence, I was right there with you then
    But I'm just saying, when we was waiting to move up
    Some of us grew up
    We all knew what the difference between what wrong and right was
    Sometimes the line blurred when we was influenced by a light buzz"
    Here he's saying, that they used to be friends before his friend got so fucked up on drugs. Slugs saying he's not innocent, he was right there getting high with him, but he grew up. They know right and wrong, but the line that separates them gets severely blurred with drugs

    "But from what I see
    You've established the persona basis
    Built the foundation for emulating the genera, drama
    Without taking the moments upon the trail of karma
    That's paved through the field that you wandered
    No longer am I shocked by the things you do
    I'm just confused as to why it has to be me to confront you
    I guess nobody else gives a damn
    So I got to go up myself, because I am a man, understand?
    You can take it as concern, or you can see it as your ego getting burned"
    He's saying he's so used to his friend fucking up that it no longer surprises him anymore, he just doesn't get why he's the only 1 to confront him.

    "
    Either way tonight though, one us is going to learn
    And I guess nobody else gives a damn, but see I do
    Because you used to be my man, understand?
    Even if you beat me down to the cement, it's all love
    I need to see you stick around until the end
    Bam, intoxicated again, right?
    Got to go up myself
    Bam, because I am a man, understand? "
    He's saying it might seem like nobody cares, but he does, because they used to be so close, and he doesn't want to lose his friend to this.



    This describes EXACTLY where I'm at. Word for word.

    It's exceeded, not succeeded
