Should be labelled as track 2 on the album. Couldn’t find where to put that!
This page should have the video added back on… not sure where it went.
I think his point is not that hipsters use of cocaine is cynical, but that these hipsters who use cocaine are also so fond of an artist, who like you said, is often preachy against drug an alcohol use. That said, it seems like they are the perfect audience if he truly wants to help others through these issues (that is as long as the are actually hearing the lyrics).
emphasis on the fact that he was speeding so fast that he “caught” the ticket.
and “She laughs with her jaw dropped like the movie mask”
is “She laughs and her jaw drop like the Jim Carrey’s "Mask”"
Isn’t letting me edit lyrics right now, but:
“Fast forward to the 4th escort I ball ??
Too quick 14 no license, that’s some awful full shit
Now must stack ketchup like condiments”
“Fast forward to the Ford Escort, I ball with it.
Towed quick, 14 no license, that’s some awful shit.
Now must I catch up, like condiments”
Also making the point that he used to be rich, but now he is “Bill Gates” rich.
Also a possible reference to the chorus of Kendrick’s Backseat Freestyle.
“so I can fuck the world for seventy-two hours.”
RHCP reference is waaaaaaay first. Just sayin.
I see where you’re coming from, macdaddyj, and it is a possibility, but I don’t think the original interpretation is at all wrong. I actually think it fits the vibe of the rest of the song a lot better. Especially in light of the second verse.
