The problem with me, is co-dependency
So afraid of the day that you won't remember me
Slug feels that his emotional dependency on a loved one has reached an unhealthy level. It terrifies him to think that one day that person may not be there anymore.
The listeners also take the roll of the loved one; he’s talking to us like maybe he has the clues, but he’s co-dependant on us, and is afraid one day we will see that and no longer need him (his advice, music etc.), and that he will eventually sink into obscurity.
