Now I wake up sick
This has two meanings. After shooting up he becomes sick and vomits also his body has become dependent and he literally feels sick when he is not on the Heroin. Like Eminem said in Deja Vu In the lines
“Couple of weeks go by it ain’t even like I’m getting high
Now I need it just not to feel sick, yeah I’m getting "
Eminem was also on opiates and had to get high to to not be sick and function just to get by.
