But I'm always getting high
Cause my confidence low
Abel is infamous for his drug use. Drug users often times use to escape reality and feel more in tune with who they are, so by Abel staying high he’s able to feel “alive.”
Note that Abel kept his identity and face secret for some time when his music was released. He’s admitted (see his recent Complex interview) that he hid behind the images of women, etc. because his confidence/self-image was low. He’s here acknowledging that his confidence is still a problem, thus he gets high a lot.
