"Trippin" as written by and Martin/dunk/ghazal....
Trippin' around down town
Throw me a crumb throw me a bone, yeah
Street kid comes along
Let me through, he say's,
I'm higher than you, now
I feel like a star
I feel like a star
Kicking the can around

The air is high, my mouth dry, feeling mellow
Sweet thing come along
I say hello, she say's hello and did you know
I feel like a star
I feel like a star
It's never very far
I feel like a star
(you're never very far)

Fallin' down
Burning out
Shootin' through the sky watch the meteor fly
Gather 'round
Gather 'round
Watch me as I hit the ground

Trippin around down town
Throw me a crumb throw me a bone, yeah
I feel like a star
I feel like a star
It's never very far
I feel like a star
Yeah yeah yeah

Fallin' down
Burning out
Shootin' through the sky watch the meteor fly
Gather 'round
Gather 'round
Watch me as I hit the ground
Watch me as I hit the ground

    General Commenti saw the music video for this way back in 98 or 99.. and for some reason the song has always stayed with me.. even though i never heard of Edwin again.

    i think it's pretty obvious that one of the main meanings of this song is about drugs... 'i'm higher than you know', 'falling down burnin up' etc.. and just the title itself. I've never heard one phrase ('I feel like a star') sum up the feeling of being on drugs so well, though i've never gone anywhere near as far as it describes here.. it also reminds me of the description of being manic in bipolar disorder... basically: You feel like a star. The way he says it is so ironic... it captures the irony of the situation.. because then there's always the comedown, you 'hit the ground' and you're not a star at all, you're just some junkie lying on a street downtown. Same with what I've studied and heard about bipolar disorder... you're flying, everything is beautiful, the world is one shining golden place... and then you crash.

    I like how the whole song keeps referencing space.. with 'star', 'meteor', etc. Great song. I wonder what happened to Edwin.. why he never released another album?
