Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from If Tomorrow Comes…, the debut album of Brooklyn rapper Maino, who embarked on a music career after being released from prison in 2003.
  • Allhiphop.com asked Maino if there any songs on If Tomorrow Comes… that stand out. The Brooklyn rapper replied that he loves this track, adding, "It's about loss, it's about losing homies to death and jail and how do you cope with that. I say, 'I don't want to feel sober, I want to feel numb, I don't want to feel sober.' So with most people aren't going through they say they drink and get high and that is kind of what the story is about. Man it feels like I'm floating on the clouds. I'm high, because I don't want to face the world alone. Because when you are going through these things you want to ease your pain. You don't want to think about what is making you hurt, that is what the record is about."
