I see the red and white lights as the ambulance flies
Reminds me of midnight in a dope fiend's eyes
And my nine-year-old self as paramedics leave
Left to bawl my eyes out on a neighbor's sleeve
Cut to a couple of years later. A 9 year old Boots is at the scene of a scary crime. Red and white ambulance lights remind him of how drug addicts' eyes look after using all day. Obviously the crime has something to do with Boots' mom, because he’s bawling and only has a neighbor for comfort.
