Before you started tokin
You used to have a brain
But now you don't get even the simplest of things
I can draw a little picture

Or even use my hands
I try to explain but you just don't understand
Man you're really losin' it
And you've really done a lot of junk now

But you keep abusin' it
What in the world happened to you
It's bad enough you do it to yourself
But taking someone with you well you know that's something else

I say I'm not that kind of person
I'm not that kind of man
I try to explain but you just don't understand
I might be sympathetic or cut a little slack

If I thought that you were willing to give a little back
But you do it in the morning
You do it in the night
You lie to refrain from just facing your life

So I'll see you man tomorrow
You'll be gackin' up again
I'll see you in a coffin by the time your wad is spent
I think of all the times that I tried to lend a hand

I try to explain but you just don't understand

    General CommentI listened to this song over 100 times in one day. It's probably about a friend fucking up with drugs.

    General CommentIt's about someone who has destroyed their life with drugs, and the narrator has tried to help them, but is fed up and has quit helping after the subject is not willing to help themselves.

    General Commenti actually like this song and im not a fan of ska at all, the chours is so fucking great and the whole concept of the song is fucking amazing. i know people just like this, i watched one friend go from having everything to loosing his job loosing his friends and family due to drugs and sure im one to talk but all my friends do the drugs with me and its how we socialize and its what every girl i get with does too so it dosn't realy bug me.
