Silent hell on the marble slab
The best trip that I've ever had
Higher than a jet plane, pass it around
My drinks on empty, need another round

[Chorus]
I want to fly, want to ride with you
Is this the best that you can do?
I want to fly, want to ride with you
Higher than a jet plane with you

Will we arrive in the middle of nowhere
Don't act like you know, I been here so many times
I never seen you before
But now that I have, I don't want to see you no more

Higher than a jet plane with you
Higher than a jet plane with you

[Chorus]

Ah-ah, auto pilot no control
Ah-ah, ah
Ah-ah, auto pilot no control
Ah-ah, ah

Higher than a jet plane with you
Higher than a jet plane with you

[Chorus]

    General Comment:the song, according to the band, is not just a drugs reference but how different the world looks when you haven't slept for several days and have been partying like a motherf*cker.

    General Comment:All drugs man....there's really no other way of putting it i dont think. Auto pilot - meaning that you have no control any more, and when your tripping or stoned, the drugs (autopilot) takes control.

    General Comment:I think "Rated R" is some kind of concept album about drugs. This song is drug-related too, about tripping.

    General Comment:Hmmmm...I love this song...chilling and dark..I think its about drugs and anyway the booklet in the Rated R album tells you what the songs are based on e.g drugs, sex, visions...

    Rated R-Strip club?! Where did you hear that...I didn't think it was that..
    Song for the deaf-Definitely a car radio...pretty sure based out in the deserts.
    Lullabies to paralyze-A fairy tale based in the woods etc.
    Queens of the stone age-Could it be set in Space? The walkies talkie radio communications and the beeping noises and static....

    General Comment:It's about living a meaningless, drug-fueled existence and having sex without any love.
