I ain't scared of the fall
I've felt the ground before
Abel loves to make analogies between his drug use and his career. Here he’s saying that even though he’s on the come up and experiencing much success, if it should stall or if his popularity starts to wane once fickle fans get tired of him, he’ll be alright cause he has experienced failure before and trusts that he can handle whatever comes his way (prolly by getting high).
He’s also letting us know that even though his drug high will end, and possibly referring to withdrawal symptoms and depression. But he’s alright with that. No one gets high and think about what it will be like after the high wears off. You enjoy the buzz and ride it out!
He has made a previous reference to feeling the ground before in ‘The Zone’, where he says
And I'mma lean, till I fall, ooh yeah
And I don’t give a damn
I felt the ground before
