[Chorus 3X]
Only once the drugs are done
I feel like dying, I feel like dying

I am sittin on the clouds
I got smoke coming from my seats
I can play basketball with the moon
I got the whole world at my feet
Playin� touch football on Marijuana Street
Or in a marijuana field, you are so beneath my cleats
Get high, so high that I feel like lying
Down in a cigar, roll me up & smoke me cuz
(I feel like dying)

[Chorus]
Only once the drugs are done
I feel like dying, I feel like dying

Swimming laps around a bottle of Louie The 13th
Jumping off of a mountain into a sea of Codine
I�m at the top of the top but still I climb
And if I shall ever fall the ground will then turn to wine
Pop, Pop, I feel like flying, then I feel like frying, then
(I feel like dying)

[Chorus]
Only once the drugs are done
I feel like dying, I feel like dying

I can mingle with the stars & throw a party on Mars
I am a prisoner locked up behind Xanax bars
I have just boarded a plane without a pilot
And violets are blue, roses are red
Daisies are yellow, the flowers are dead
Wish I can give you this feeling
I feel like buying
And if my dealer don�t have no more, then
(I feel like dying)

[Chorus]
Only once the drugs are done
I feel like dying, I feel like dying

    General Comment:It's about getting so high on so many different drugs that you feel like it's an endless ascent into ecstacy. And when you come down you look around and realize that that feeling is gone, and then you start thinking about everything that's gone wrong or could go wrong or is going wrong, and it turns into an endless trail of paranoia and depression that you're causing just by thinking. The obvious solution is to do more drugs or die. And when you can't get any all you want to do is die. Obviously.

    As for you people saying the song is 'eerie', you clearly do not know how it feels to be in that position. Not accusing you of anything, just saying. I find it to be a beautiful song that reveals the thoughts of someone who is clearly on drugs as he writes. The first time I heard it I was high, and the way the song is setup sent me into a trail of words and knowledge that I didn't even know I had, because it was knowledge that I had read about and just forgotten. But even though I couldn't confirm it, I knew that it was all true, and as I analyzed my own thought process I reeled out all sorts of randomized thoughts that were connected only in a third section of my brain that was operating independently of the other two. I had so many thought processes going that I eventually forgot what I was thinking about and just wanted to listen to the song.

    General Comment:I love this song.
    One particular aspect that I love so much is how he never actually says "I feel like dying," but lets the recorded loop say it. To me its like how when having thoughts like that, its hard to say them out loud, even to yourself, and that you would rather someone else do it.

    General Comment:this really is a cry for help in my opinion. feeling like dying is obviously not something thats a good thing, especially when that person is relating that to the feeling when coming down from drugs. the whole chorus, and song at that, have a very eerie feel to it.

    General Comment:this song is definately about being addicted and slowly getting worse and worse into it. he starts talking bout smokin weed, and then eventually startes talking about getting into things like xanax which is no better than doing dope and how the withdrawls feel like dying

    General Comment:well obviously this song is about falling deeper into drug addiction and when he comes down from being high, he feels like dying. the chorus and just the song in general defintitly has an feel to it but in my opinion thats what makes the song so good. and i absolutely love the chorus.

    General Comment:this song is clearly more than just about drugs

    when has he ever rapped without connotation or metaphors?

    "I’m at the top of the top but still I climb
    And if I shall ever fall the ground will then turn to wine
    Pop, Pop, I feel like flying, then I feel like frying, then"

    He's at the top of top (he's really high, duh) but still he climbs (takes more drugs) And if he shall ever fall (O.D.) the ground will then turn to wine (death, and not afraid of it, obviously since he knows it'll happen this way) Pop, pop, (more drugs) I fell like flying (reeaaally high) then I feel like frying (pain, near-death) then.. (gone)
