I can't live with my mistakes
Get out of bed or face this day

But I need to
Needle in my eye
I just need you to go sit down
'Cause I told you I'd bury it deep in the ground

A joke a stroke of genius
Probably somewhere in between
No joke the broken records laughing
While she gasps and screams
A lull from up above my neck
But still below my spleen

I am what I am who am I?
I don't know what that means.

But I wanna meet Dave Grohl
I wanna meet Dave Grohl
I wanna meet Dave Grohl

I'm not a kid?
That's my mistake
Get out of bed?
Nah fuck this day

But I need to
Needle in my eye
I just need you to be around
But I told you I'd bury it deep in the ground

A joke a stroke of genius
Probably somewhere in between
No joke the broken records laughing
While she gasps and screams
A lull from up above my neck
But still below my spleen

I am what I am who am I?
I don't know what that means.

But I wanna meet Dave Grohl
I wanna be Dave Grohl
I wanna be Dave Grohl

Never gonna stop me
Never gonna stop me

    General CommentOh and dave grohl is notorious for being a purveyor of the relatively clean lifestyle, no H for sure at least, and that's saying something since he was in nirvana.
    So he wants to be a Dave Grohl, a baddass rocker with no drug problems...

    General CommentI'm leaning towards heroin. He can't start his day without putting a needle in his eye, he doesn't want to face the day without it...
    He talks about a broken record, maybe the broken record of telling himself he's gonna quit and never being able to.
    Also a lull above his neck might refer to the rush after banging, "but still below my spleen" could then mean he can't shit, since H or opiates in general cause some rowdy constipation...
    Just a thought

    General Commentthis song is about violence and obsession to me
    and someone who turns a blind eye to his personality flaws and just dreams of meeting his boyhood idol
    Dave Grohl
    The individual personified in the song is seriously disturbed
