  • Wake up in the morning and it's hard to live
    Hard to live, yes, it's hard to live
    And it will be a long time before shit starts to give
    And every single day it's getting harder to give
    But God would be up for being down with a ho
    Lord knows that I got fuckin' mic control
    Do you got the mic control?
    You notice your style is well original

    This man, makin' money
    How I know
    It wont be no man of me
    In my bed I watch TV
    I'm drunk by noon
    But that's ok
    I'll be president someday
    Light my cigarette and
    I think that Bert Susanka made me drink
    Load the box and then pump that shit
    Got my greatest hits
    Got my greatest hits

    Is this band, makin' money? I don't know
    The writing on the wall
    All my friends drink alcohol
    I'm too drunk to light the bong
    I'm too stoned to write this song
    Light my cigarette and
    I think that Bert Susanka made me drink
    Load the box and then pump that shit
    Got my greatest hits

    Wake up in the morning and it's hard to live
    Hard to live, hard to live
    It's hard to live and it will be a long time
    Before shit starts to give
    And every single day it's getting harder to give
    But God would be up for being down with a ho
    Lord knows that I got fuckin' mic control
    Do you got mic control?
    You notice your style is well original

    This man, makin' money, how I know
    It won't be no man of me
    In my bed I watch TV I'm drunk by noon
    But that's OK I'll be president someday
    Light my cigarette and
    I think that Bert Susanka made me drink
    Load the box and then pump that shit
    It's the Ziggens greatest hit
    It's the Ziggens greatest hit
    It's the Ziggens his great-est hit Writer/s: BRADLEY JAMES NOWELL

  • Beck From The Dead from Long BeachIf any of you guys actually live the lifestyle of someone addicted to shooting up Ronny, you would know you don't just carry needles around with you you have a whole kit. You going to be able to cook your s--t in the spoon, then you need a filter to put on the end of the needle so you don't get impurities straight into your bloodstream and you suck run Ron Jeremy up into the syringe. You need a rubber tube to tie off that dinosaur. Many addicts call it their kit, the needle come in the referred to as the rig, much as his famously known about Kurt Cobain he kept his in a cigar box like a lot of people keep their kit in some sort of a box or bag. I know from experience it's not a fun lifestyle.
  • Joe from Somewhere, CtThis song is about blasting one of his favorite bands on a boombox, obviously while pretty messed up in the STP. You load the box with a cassette. The only reference to heroin one could really make is the depression he's feeling in the morning but that's a bit of a stretch.
  • Dulin from Brimingham, EnglandThe Lyric:
    "Load the Box and I'll pump that s*!t"
    Is not about heroin or any type of drug. its about a personal stereo system invented in the mid-seventies; something called the "Boom Box."
    Load the boom box and I'll pump the music. Not every sublime song is exclusively about drugs.
  • Pedro from Chula Vista, Caryan, you're right. it is about songs and not drugs. Sublime themselves have talked about that in many an interview. But the last "chorus" that you're talking about...it ain't a chorus and he says "it's the ziggens greatest hits"
  • Wendie from Houston, TxI thought loading the box referred to weed, isn't that where like everyone keeps their stash? Plus he mentions being stoned anyway, so yeahh...
  • Peter from Penistown, IlWait, couldn't greatest hits be a reference to taking hits from a bong? just guessing.
  • Hahahah! from Port Saint Lucie, FlActually he put alot of references about heroin in his songs. He believed heroin increased his artistic capabilty and used famous examples of rockstars to justify it.
  • Ryan from Lanesborough, MaThe song isn't about heroin...

    'Load the box and I'll pump that sh*t, I got my greatest hits' is a jukebox reference, the songs about getting wasted and listening to music, you'll notice the last chorus he says 'Got the Ziggens greaest hit' instead of 'my greatest hits'

    not every song he wrote, not even a lot of his songs have to do with heroin...
  • Tawni from Bellflower, Cais that supposed to be a good thing?
  • Kim from Stuart, FlHuh, I always thought the line was "Load the box and I'm drunk as s--t," and I took it to be a happy-go-lucky tune about getting totally off your face and singing along to your favorite songs. I'll have to take another look at the lyrics.
  • Izzie from Lala, Hianother one of sublimes fantastic songs!
  • Tessa from Ottawa, CanadaLoad the box and I'll pump that sh*t/but I got my greatest hit
    Always reminds me of my boyfriend...
