"Hail The Leaf" as written by and Philip Hansen Anselmo....
That brave river, I can't sail.

Because of that lone feeling,
That I might fail.
So fuck it.
I just smoke let me feel stoned
6th hour.
I still fail to rise,
And I cower in
Reality's eyes, so I
Just smoke

Let me feel stoned
Let that paranoia cut
My head off.
I'm low down
Crying shame today smoke stoned
I have fallen
Scattered the wave
Alone I'm crying
Broken shade
So I just smoke let me feel stoned
I can't feel you
You can't brave (the river?)
No more sadness no more pain
Not what feeds you but what raves
No more sadness no more

    My InterpretationThe speaker turns to marijuana ("So I just smoke / Let me feel stoned") to counter his lack of confidence ("That brave river / I can't sail / That lone feeling / That I might fail"). He either views this drug as the solution to his sadness and fear or he is being sarcastic when he says, "No more sadness / No more pain."
