And I'mma lean, till I fall, ooh yeah
And I don’t give a damn
I felt the ground before
He’s on that sizzurp, so he’s leanin'
and he’ll do it until he passes out, and isn’t worried because he frequently is on codeine.
The “lean until I fall” bit is also a double entendre: He also refers to pushing the limits in his life. His ultra-rapid rise to stardom has literally made him a wealthy, jet-setting sensation overnight — sitting courtside at basketball games with Drake, etc. This rapid increase in status and wealth took place so quickly that he can still remember what it was like to be a poor, struggling artist, and it wasn’t that bad. So he is prepared to push it all to the limit, go too far, or too hard, even at the risk of losing it all, because he’s been there before.
The Weeknd also refers to this line on “The Fall”.
