Drag

You're always ahead of the game
I drag behind
You never get caught in the rain
When I'm drenched to the bone every time
You're the first one to swim across the Seine
I lag behind
You're always ahead of the game
While I drag behind

I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind

You're always ahead of the pack
I drag behind
You possess every trait that I lack
By coincidence or by design
You're the monkey I've got on my back
That tells me to shine
You're always ahead of the pack
While I drag behind.

I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind

You're always ahead of the rest
When I'm always on time
You got A's on your algebra tests
I failed and they kept me behind
I just got to get off my chest
That I think you're divine
You're always ahead of the rest
While I drag behind.

I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind
I drag behind

    My InterpretationInteresting...I have a totally different interpretation.

    So we all agree he feels "behind" someone.

    In my opinion this other person is "sober him". if you've been an addict, you'll know the feeling. The "civilian" you feels weird, slow, awkward, while you have this image of you as a superhero when you're on "whatever it is you're addicted to".

    He hates this part of him, envies him, is jealous of it...yet is drawned to it.

    Please correct me if you see any flaw in this, because I've been hearing that way for years...
