First to admit I'm a doomed droog addict
And I always will be, hey man don't follow me
No excuse for drug abuse
Said these lines a thousand times
Don't want to live atrial fib from neurosis, cerosis

Please make me smile if you learn from my trial
Baby I'll pay the price maybe saving your life for ya
I can't state this point enough
The pickup's easy but the put down's rough
Up the nose or tap a vein no one els but you to blame

I can't believe I died last night. Oh God I'm dead again.
I can't believe I died last night. I'm fucking dead again.

Chemical joy turning thee paranoid
Recently buried deeply Greenwood Cemetery
I had no pulse last time I checked
I'd trade my life for self respect
There are some things worse than death

I can't believe I died last night. Oh God I'm dead again.
I can't believe I died last night. I'm fucking dead again.

    General CommentThis song is about his battles with cocaine abuse. He said in interviews that every time he woke up after a night of falling off the wagon and doing cocaine, he felt like like he had died. "Please make me smile if you learn from my trial - Baby I'll pay the price maybe saving your life for ya" is obvious. He would feel better about himself after his bouts with addiction if the rest of us would learn from him and NOT DO COCAINE! Don't ever try it because quitting it is monumentally harder.

    General Commentyeah and i was surprised at how long it took for the lyrics to this great album took to come up. Great song on a Great album.

    Its about his bouts with cocain and heroin, having an O.D. dying like Nikki Sixx did.

    General CommentOh yeah true to popular beleif Nikki Sixx came back to life... and is still alive now as we speak 3/24/2007 7:15 est.

    Whats weird, but in a benign way, is that this song is a tad over 4 minutes long and still seems punkish and short in context with the other great (epic/long) songs on this great album.

    General Commentdidn't find out about this CD until the day before it came out, then I got it when it came out. Type O 2007 and still kicking ass. I have but three other Type O albums but this is by far their best effort, from what I know, IMO.

    "I can't believe I died last night, I'm fucking Dead Again"

    yeah.

    My InterpretationSeems to be alluding to his heart condition in the first verse. Atrial Fib is heart flutters or palpitations.
