This line leads into the hook on this song, which is something most people going through something similar to what Jonny is dealing with can relate to. He’s speaking for those who feel alone, misunderstood or unsatisfied with the world and their place in it; so when he checks out, he believes people who knew him and can relate to his music will continue to sing songs like this.

He wants to get high…as fuck.

Also, this could be interpreted as him wanting to open and ‘elevate’ his mind until his thoughts go far beyond those of people who base their whole mentality around religion instead of thinking for themselves.

His general attitude towards life and people has not only caused him to have strong, alternative beliefs, but it made his life and his depression worse.

He continues to ask himself questions he never has the answers to…do people understand and support him? or do they think he’s a whiny brat and want him to stfu and gtfo? Should he even CARE since they enjoy his music so much?

Jonny admits that he might have a few screws loose but he blames it on the world at large, rather than himself.

A lot of his stubbornness, paranoia and general opinions seem to be linked to his mental issues and he wonders if people understand his point of view or if they just think he’s totally insane; from the looks of it, it seems to be a bit of both…

Jonny has a tendency to disregard people with authority if he feels as if their opinions make less sense than his or they can’t logically justify and defend their opinions or rules…he really is quite stubborn…

This might not always be a bad quality to have though, seeing as these people tend to throw their weight around for personal gain rather than speaking and acting in favor of fairness.

People with authority (parents, teachers, principals, police etc..) can be douchebags quite frankly and they tend to abuse their power at times, so when they realize they can’t control Jonny or anybody as rebellious as he is, they try to find other ways to assert their authority, often by way of punishment (or in the case of Jonny’s school situation, by way of threatening to call the police on him and having him banned from the school).

Once again though, Jonny’s paranoia is subtly apparent in the way he worded this line…

It’s not hard to tell that Jonny El Rey isn’t just like everyone else, even though he’s expected to be. He’s misunderstood and far from being the menace “they” seem to think he is.
