  • Greg from Princeton, NjI have to agree with Joel from Yorkshire. It is a great song. I have also seen the video of House on Youtube. It's great. I don't feel however that the song is nessisarily about cocaine. It could be that the protaganist in the song is mentally ill.
  • Joel from Hawworth, Yorkshire, United KingdomThis is a brilliant song. I recently saw a video of House with this song on it. The video is on
    Youtube.
