I love you like the lye
“Lye” is a slang term for weed or weed smoke. This is a perfect line to start the song with considering the name.
Another, more scientific Lye related analysis:
Lye is strong acidic solution of potassium hydroxide used for washing and cleansing. Lye BURNS (as seen in Fight Club), as love does on occasion.
This also sounds like “lie,” which could be a metaphor for how lying to someone can sometimes save them from pain (the pain of a chemical burn maybe?). More likely than chemical burns, Fab is referencing how people often lie to themselves about their relationship with drugs.
This could ALSO be a reference to “Love the Way You Lie”, the hit song by Eminem and Rihanna.
