I get my drugs from god, oh yeah (oh yeah)
you should see how the shit he's got, oh yeah (oh yeah)
and then it starts, a trip of a lifetime
(our spaceship up against earth)
a war on drugs would surely bring...
I get my drugs from god, oh yeah
you should see how high I go oh yeah (oh yeah)
the 'shrooms kick off, a trip of a lifetime
(when lovers see more clearly)
I'm sure we're on a ride to (a day of love and religion)
I'm drifting in a blankness of (Ideas! Colours! Movement!)
Kapow! Kapow! Kapow!
I'm drifting in a vacuum of (Ideas! Colours! Movement!)
Kapow! Kapow!

    General CommentIt is indeed about one of the band members and a drug induced trip...

    Catchy song, if a bit short.

    General Commenti think its somebody else being on drugs rather than a first hand experience, or, yeah, god?

    My InterpretationI think it's about God, and how religion is a medication taken by some people who can't cope with the "vaccuum of ideas" that exists without a belief in a God. The drugs is a metaphor.

    "I get my drugs from God oh yeah (oh yeah), you should see the shit he's got oh yeah (oh yeah)
    And then it starts, a trip of a lifetime, our spaceship up against yours"

    I think that's about those religious people who are arrogant and tries to big up God's existance and the benefits of being in a religion. The second line being about once someone's in a religion they'll seek conflict with others "a trip of a lifetime, our spaceship up against yours". I imagine Biffy are speaking from an atheist's point of view, using a spaceship as a metaphor for what they see as the ridiculous beliefs of religious people, and using the drug trip thing as a metaphor for getting caught up in extremist religion.

    I'm sure it says "A day of no religion". But that might be me misshearing it to back up my claim of it's meaning :P
    That's my view anyway.
