You Don't Get Me High Anymore

Play Video
  • I don't like staying at home
    When the moon is bleeding red
    Woke up stoned in the backseat from a dream where my teeth fell out of my head
    Cut it up, cut it up, yeah
    Everybody's on something here
    My God send chemical best friend
    Skeleton whispering in my ear

    Walk with me to the end
    Stare with me into the abyss
    Do you feel like letting go?
    I wonder how far down it is

    Nothing is fun
    Not like before
    You don't get me high anymore
    Used to take one
    Now it's takes four
    You don't get me high anymore

    Runnin' through emergency rooms
    Spinning wheels and ceiling fans
    My handshake, cellophane, landscape, mannequin faking it the best I can
    Cadillac, Cadillac red
    No hands on the steering wheel
    I'm crashing this save-a-ho puppet show
    UFO obliterate the way I feel

    Walk with me to the end
    Stare with me into the abyss
    Do you feel like letting go?
    I wonder how far down it is

    Nothing is fun
    Not like before
    You don't get me high anymore
    Used to take one
    Now it's takes four
    You don't get me high anymore
    You don't get me high anymore
    You don't get me high anymore

    Walk with me to the end
    Stare with me into the abyss
    Do you feel like letting go?
    I wonder how far down it is

    Nothing is fun
    Not like before
    You don't get me high anymore
    Used to take one
    Now it's takes four
    You don't get me high anymore

    (High anymore)
    (You don't get me, you don't get me high anymore)
    (High anymore)
    (You don't get me)
    You don't get me high anymore Writer/s: SARAH BARTHEL, EDWIN BOCAGE, JOSHUA CARTER, ERIC FREDRIC, ALFRED SCRAMUZZA, DANIEL DODD WILSON
