  • Uh-uh uh-uh uh-uh
    I eat my dinner in my bathtub
    Then I go to sex clubs
    Watching freaky people getting it on
    It doesn't make me nervous
    If anything I'm restless
    Yeah I've been around and I've seen it all

    I get home, I got the munchies
    Binge on all my Twinkies
    Throw up in the tub, then I go to sleep
    And I drank up all my money
    Dazed and kinda lonely

    You're gone and I gotta stay high
    All the time to keep you off my mind, woo ooh, woo ooh
    High all the time to keep you off my mind, woo ooh, woo ooh
    Spend my days locked in a haze
    Trying to forget you babe, I fall back down
    Gotta stay high all my life to forget I'm missing you, woo ooh, woo ooh

    Pick up daddies at the playground
    How I spend my daytime
    Loosen up the frown, make them feel alive
    I make it fast and greasy
    I'm numb and way too easy

    You're gone and I gotta stay high
    All the time to keep you off my mind, woo ooh, woo ooh
    High all the time to keep you off my mind, woo ooh, woo ooh
    Spend my days locked in a haze
    Tryin' to forget you babe, I fall back down
    Gotta stay high all my life to forget I'm missing you, woo ooh, woo ooh

    Staying in my play pretend
    Where the fun ain't got no end, oh
    Can't go home alone again
    Need someone to numb the pain, oh
    Staying in my play pretend
    Where the fun ain't got no end, oh-oh
    Can't go home alone again
    Need someone to numb the pain

    You're gone and I gotta stay high
    All the time to keep you off my mind, woo ooh, woo ooh
    High all the time to keep you off my mind, woo ooh, woo ooh
    Spend my days locked in a haze
    Tryin' to forget you babe, I fall back down
    Gotta stay high all my life to forget I'm missing you, woo ooh, woo ooh
