  • This song describes a heroin and cocaine addiction. It doesn't address the major hardships usually associated with drug addiction, but rather the things that you might take for granted, such as spending time with friends or enjoying your favorite cereal. >>

  • Johnny from Los Angeles, CaThat isn't true at all! This song isn't about enjoying your favorite cereal! It's about the drug abuse in a BAD way, the protagonist of the song wants to be cool like Keith Richards or Lenny Bruce (people who took drugs) but he realizes it places him nowhere.
