In my bed I watch TV
I'm drunk by noon, but that's OK, I'll be President some day
Greatest Hits by Sublime

Despite his laid back drug-influenced lifestyle, Brad sarcastically says that it’s ok, he can still be president. This is making fun of people who say that they can quit drinking whenever they want, and that’s the only reason they aren’t successful. It isn’t really a political jab.

Hard to live, yes it's hard to live
And it will be a long time before that shit starts to give
And every single day it's getting harder to live
Greatest Hits by Sublime

His addiction, plus the added stress that the people around him pressure him into make it difficult for him to live everyday life. Like some of his other songs this becomes prophetic when he died of heroin overdose.
