Don't he know he could only get as high as he fell?

from Kanye West (Ft. Common) – My Way Home Lyrics on Rap Genius


“Fighting for hits to heighten they hell” … drug related and so is the next line … in response to the previous line. Does the drug addict not understand that you can’t get as high as you first did. As the addict gets high and comes down and attempts to get high again, he/she can no longer reach that original high when it comes to hard drugs like crack, cocaine, heroin and so on. The previous line is key … heighten they hell … the more high you get the more hell you face … hell is the forever falling. It gets to a point of not being able to get high but more to maintain the hell you now live in active addiction.
