"(Can't You) Trip Like I Do" as written by Richard Michael Patrick, Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland....
I've got the understanding of a 4-year-old
I've got the peice of mind of a killer soul
I've got the rationale of a new york cop
I've got the patience of a chopping block yeah

Trip like I do
Trip like I do (oh my god this is the best)

I've got the acumen of a season broke
I've got the lack of say of a billion souls
I've got the world on my back but I don't seem to care
I've got the comprehension of a world unaware yeah

Trip like I do
Trip like I do (oh my god this is the best)
Trip like I do (mm..i want you to trip like I do)

Can't you, can't you trip like I do
Can't you, can't you trip like I do

Laid down my back I can't sleep cause I'm falling
Eyes in my teeth I can't see cause I'm eating
Head full of noise I can't think cause it's crushing
Back on my feet like a freight trian I'm coming

Can everybody feel like I do
Can everybody feel like I do (oh my god)

Can't you can't you trip like I do
Can't you can't you trip like I do (oh my god)
Can't you trip can't you think can't you feel like I do
Can't you walk can't you breathe can't you trip like I do
Like me

    General CommentAnother example of a great song supporting a piece-of-shit movie. This song is really self-explanatory. The narrator feels he's achieved a new state of mind after, well, taking acid. Really cool, hi-tech fututristic effects throughout the song.

    General Comment"The lyrics are childish," said Patrick, who added that he's not a reader of the Spawn comic series that inspired the movie. "It's like an innocent child trying to communicate 'The understanding of a 4-year-old/ and the rationale of a New York cop.' Essentially it's like I've done things in my life, why don't you give them a shot? Can't everybody feel like I do?"

    "...Just a kind of over-the-top fucking anthem about tripping on fucking acid."

    General CommentYeah, it's definitely a great song about tripping on acid or shrooms... I used to think it was just a random cool song but after the first time I tripped, I totally understood this song so much more....
