The literal and primarily implied meaning of this song is the journey of a man's addiction to narcotics. It can, however, be interpreted to include the oncoming process of almost any form of addiction.
KatI think what makes this song so great is so many people connect with it for different meanings. It's art.

Andrew from 55744I met these guys just outside of Ft. Carson Colorado in 2005. It was a local small-time bar, but I had already about eight thousand times before I went to see them with some battle buddies :) ( Villa you know who you are ) They were personable as can be... down to earth as f--k! and his violin is describable... much respect and a must see live! go ARMY.
Ash from Rochester, Nyhow do we know if these songs are about his life or if there jus songs does he write all the songs does anyone know
Antonio from Brighton, CoThis song not only seems like a short story of addiction, but a need for human connection as well. For a full understanding of the song I think that you need to feel the sound and looking at the art work on the album.
Tom from England, United StatesThis song is great i mean J's voice as he bellows through it its so powerful.
In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
