You don't look but you kick me
You can't feel but you hit me
You can't deal with the way I pray
Why do we all have to look this way
I gotta heart I got blood feel pain

Time, time is not on my side
'Cause the way I am
Gotta gotta find gotta find the reason why
A woman ain't a man

You don't look but you kick me
You can't feel but you hit me
You can't deal with the way I pray
Why do you all have to think this way
I gotta heart I got blood feel pain

Fall in those single file lines
Like army ants
Yeah fall into those single file lines and complete the plan

You don't look but you kick me
You can't feel but you hit me
You can't deal with the way I pray
Why do we all have to think this way
I gotta heart I got blood feel pain

You don't look but you kick me
You can't deal with the way I pray

    General Commentas far as i can see, this song is about a couple of things.

    first off, it could be about weiland's disgust with the media making a big deal of his personal life, according to the first verse. he's saying he's only human, and do something better with your time

    the refrain is most likely about drugs, seeing as drugs have a tendency to shorten life "time is not on my side/cause the way i am"

    the last part is a double meaning that sums up the song beautifully. theres is definitely the reference to people as 'army ants' who follow everyone else and 'complete the as-of-yet-unnamed plan'. also, there is the desperation in weiland to go back to drugs, and the "lines of ants" can be seen as a drug reference, either lines of cocaine or herion tracks or whatever
