Something these days in the air
I’m afraid to sing this song
‘Cuz no one answers me
Got in the way of this one chance of mine
I threw it back
It wasn’t gonna last
I jumped ahead
There was a slipstream
One good feeling there
I got out quick
Lower than I go
I’m a pinball
Sticking through a lot
Then down the side wall

The drop
The drop

I must have been alone
In the meantime
Nothing comes my way
I’m proud to say
I crossed a line
I said goodbye
This state to recreate
Is the drain of time
I lead you on
There were no days to wait for
No carrying on
Life’s still a disease
Help it along
It’s a sure thing
Everyone I meet is a laughing star

The drop
The drop

You all should walk through a poster
You should see how things align
Change how you see a decline
See how high you really climb

You all should walk through a poster
You should see how things align
Change how you see a decline
See how high you really climb

You all should walk through a poster
You should see how things align
Change how you see a decline
See how high you really climb

The drop
The drop

    General Commenti read an interview with john frusciante, and he said the title of the song came from the 3 measures of 6/4 during the chorus, hence 666. yeah it makes sense.

    General Commenti think it's about someone in pain who knows they are in pain and are trying to do something about it and being proud of trying even though they knwo that they are not able to try hard enough becaus eit is just not in their power to do so therefoe the drop!

    they don't rcoginize that they are actually stronger than what they think they are though
