"My Disease" as written by Brent Michael Clawson, Skye Jayne, Jack Tankersley, Gene Buerger and William Tyler Smith....
Wake up, and get dressed
Check your pulse and tie me in
I can't think cause you're starring at me
I'll snap that look right off your face

Glad I'm off this, suck one down with me
It keeps me believing, yeah

I don't wanna fight
I don't wanna be
This is my disease
It will be there in the morning
Will be there when I wake
The sad reality

Well back up, and strap in
This could be one hell of a ride, and I
Can guarantee my friend
You will make it out this time

Glad I'm off this, suck one down with me
It keeps me believing, yeah

I don't wanna fight
I don't wanna be
This is my disease
It will be there in the morning
It off's me as I sleep
This feeling's killing me (yeah)

This is my disease
This is my disease
This is my disease
This is my disease

I don't wanna fight
I don't wanna be
This is my disease
It will be there in the morning
Will be there when I wake
The sad reality

Well, I don't wanna fight
I don't wanna be
This is my disease
It will be there in the morning
It off's me as I sleep
This feeling is killing me, oh yeah

    General CommentTo me it's like this song is about a feeling of emptiness.
    Wake up, getting dressed; these are basic things.
    In a simple human life. But it's like he's not enjoying it.
    It's like a disease, reality is like a disease to him.

    General CommentUh yeah and it's about addiction, filling the void you mentioned with booze, smokes, coke, anything you can "suck down". Killer GD song.

    My InterpretationI'm inclined to think this song is generally about addiction too, though talking specifically about cocaine (though it could admittedly be about any drug that comes in powder form). This is obvious from

    "Line 'em up and suck one down with me"

    a clear references to chopping up and snorting lines of coke or whatever.


    It refers also I think to the general madness that addiction can slowly induce, such as paranoia and increased agression:

    "I can't think with you staring at me,
    I'll smack that look right off your face"


    It seems also that the protagonist of the song admits that his addiction is a way of escaping normal life:

    "I don't wanna think,
    I don't wanna breathe"
