Album: By The Way (2002)
  • I got dosed by you and
    Closer than most to you and
    What am I supposed to do
    Take it away
    I never had it anyway
    Take it away
    And everything will be okay

    In you a star is born and
    You cut a perfect form and
    Someone forever warm
    Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on
    Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on

    Way upon the mountain where she died
    All I ever wanted was your life
    Deep inside the canyon I can't hide
    All I ever wanted was your life

    Show love with no remorse and
    Climb on to your seahorse and
    This ride is right on course
    This is the way
    I wanted it to be with you
    This is the way
    I knew that it would be with you
    Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on
    Lay on, lay on, lay on, lay on

    Way upon the mountain where she died
    All I ever wanted was your life
    Deep inside the canyon I can't hide
    All I ever wanted was your life

    I got dosed by you and
    Closer than most to you and
    What am I supposed to do
    Take it away
    I never had it anyway
    Take it away
    And everything will be okay

    Way upon the mountain where she died
    All I ever wanted was your life
    Deep inside the canyon I can't hide
    All I ever wanted was your life Writer/s: MICHAEL BALZARY, JOHN FRUSCIANTE, ANTHONY KIEDIS, CHAD SMITH

  • Randy B from ArizonaEveryone wants to believe the song Dosed is about drugs or someone that had a drug problem or drug tragedy.

    I think it’s pretty clear that the song is about falling for and being in love with someone that love-bombed then was discarded perhaps possible
  • Rebeka from Rijeka, CroatiaI think it's kind of a love song particulary because of the lines : "This is the way I wanted it to be with you
    This is the way that I knew that it would be with you".. or that he is dosed with someone
  • Lucas from Heerlen, NetherlandsKnock me down was written for Hillel Slovak.
  • Layton from Paris, TxKnock Me Down was written about Anthony's battle with drug addiction through the late 80s and early 90s. No Chump Love Sucker was written about Hillel Slovak not Knock Me Down. Read Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis, gives you the whole Chili Pepper's story. Noobs!
