Uh
Yeah
Hello

hey

I be high
When I split a dutch and fill it up
I be high
When I get my money doubled up
I be high
When a model wanna let me cut
I be high
When I'm shinin' cause my diamonds blush

I be low
When a nigga can't get away
I be low
When I can't seem to make a way
I be low
When I can't even feed myself
I be low
When I realize I'm by myself

But I be high
When I'm shopping for expensive clothes
I be high
When I get what I couldn't before
I be high
In the club while I'm poppin bub
I be high
When I'm cruisin, sittin' on them dubs

But I be low
At the shows in my dressing room
I be low
When I see that I'm a different dude
I be low
On the plane looking at the sky
I be low
But my highs keep the rhythm tight

I be high
Then I be low
I be low
Then I be high
It's like a battle knife to a gun fight
But I be cool
This the story of my life

I be high
Then I be low
I be low
Then I be high
It's like a battle knife to a gun fight
No need to worry
This the story of my life

I be low
When I gotta get ready for work
I be low
Cause after bills my pockets be hurt
I be low
When I can't take a girl out
I be low
Cause they can't even figure me out

But I be high
When the phony chicks show me love
Cause in my mind I read em' but don't give a fuck
I be high
When a nigga get attention
I be high
When ya girl catch feelings

Then I be low
When I go into the empty space
I be low
When I'm lookin' at a stressed face
I be low
Cause my brother face through hard time
I be low
With my nigga' ridin close behind

Then I'm high
When I know the places we can go
I be high
When I think of what the future hold
I be high
When she ask for my room number
I be high
But my lows keep a nigga' humble

I be high
Then I be low
I be low
Then I be high
It's like a battle knife to a gun fight
But I be cool
This the story of my life

I be high
Then I be low
I be low
Then I be high
It's like a battle knife to a gun fight
But I be cool
This the story of my life

I was high
When the label said that I was dope
I was high
In my eyes cause I had hope
I was high
When I first had the taste of love
I was high
When I left the city I was from

And I was low
When I had a recent heartbreak
I was low
Cause I truly thought I had a mate
I was low
When I lost her over silliness
I was low
Cause she twisted what my words meant

But I was high
When I finally had the chance to see
Everything that's pretty ain't always good for me
I was high
When she first said I like you
Man I must be too high to even write, dude
And these things show you growth
Some niggas show a little
But I'll show you the most

Highs and lows
and succeed for sho
The only thing left to do is say a toast
Cause...

I be high
Then I be low
I be low
Then I be high
It's like a battle knife to a gun fight
But I be cool
This the story of my life

I be high
Then I be low
I be low
Then I be high
It's like a battle knife to a gun fight
But I be cool
That's the story of my life

Now won't you please save Scotty, Lord?
Help me, please
Help me, please

Now won't you please save Scotty, Lord?
Wont you please save Scotty?
Help me, please

    General Commentwhere he came from was low and his life before he had a lot of emotional problems and stuff but then in his new life he is"high" in the sense that it is a great life, but then theres also those sections that mix i be high with i be low to show that even though he is the high life right now, theres always small doses of low that he sees in himself and around him

    General Commentyeah, he's definitely not saying that weed is why those good things happen to him, he gets high because good things happen to him

    My Interpretationmost people don't understand how constant weed gets you equally LOW as well as "high"
    if you understand this concept you can thoroughly comprehend cudis music

    General CommentKid Cudi is not talking about weed in this song. Although it may be a coincidence that he made for a reason. He is talking about the High and Lows of life. The highs being about him having all his money and getting to do what he wants, but the lows cancel the highs out. He sees how he has changed with his fame and all his money. "On the airplane looking at the sky" this song is deeper then you think.

    General Commenti think cntfeelmyface is exactly right. he's talking about both, the highs and lows that come with smoking weed alot and the ones that are just constant in life.

    My InterpretationI believe kid cudi is promoting weed here... i think he is talking about his success when he is high (i be High) than his downfall happen when he is sober (i be low)
