His mind escapes to a place less painful than the reality of his situation. He comes back, since the escape is only temporary, to find the situation remains.

See these days I feel so disconnected, it gets harder to drop to my knees
I guess that's a side-effect of living in Generation X-Y-Z
The Noose by Tech N9ne (Ft. ¡MAYDAY!)

He is struggling to pray to God anymore because he doesn’t have a reason to. He blames this on the generation which he grew up in, which includes a lot of doubt and inability to trust anyone.

Reaching for moments more but the cancer in her lungs took her from me
We drift, naturally, like two ships in the roughest of seas
The Noose by Tech N9ne (Ft. ¡MAYDAY!)

It has become harder and harder to remember his grandmother ever since she died from lung cancer. No matter how bad they want to stay together, they naturally became further apart after she died.

But I guess it's the laws of sick men
Send out young'ns and they fall the victim
Of an evil clan's plan, that's why I be saying, "Dwamn"
Cause on 9/11 I realized our fate is in another man's hands
The Noose by Tech N9ne (Ft. ¡MAYDAY!)

Soldiers are usually young men, the future of America, and they are they ones who are dying. The sick men who don’t have as much to live for are rarely in the military. But a lot of this is irrelevant, because you never know when another occurrence like 9/11 will happen. No matter how hard you work and sacrifice, your life can be taken in an instant by others that the US military has upset.

I think by “sick men” Tech is referencing to the people in our government who make these decisions to send out young soldiers to die.

Tech is saying its the laws made by sick men (U.S Government) they send out the “young'ns” and they are the ones suffering from the plans of evil people in charge.

I think it is sad that you think Tech is referencing to my fellow brothers and sisters having to defend you and your freedom because our “military” upset another country. No, “they fall victim of an evil clan’s plan”, Tech is saying that we have to defend you because of arrogant sick fucks attack us and we will not stand for it and we respond accordingly.

I've tried writing this letter now several times before
When the party is over and the liquor is no more
I'll tell you now that living now has become somewhat a chore
And following their rules is such a god forsaken bore
The Noose by Tech N9ne (Ft. ¡MAYDAY!)

Written from the perspective of someone trying to write a suicide note. They have tried to write this letter many times before, but could never get around to it. They try to avoid writing it by drinking and partying to distract from the pain, but when that’s over you’re right back where you started. You still have to struggle on in a world where it has become tough to live.
