We Are All on Drugs

Album: Make Believe (2005)
Charted: 47
  • When you're out with your friends
    In your new Mercedes-Benz
    And you're on drugs
    And you show up late for school
    'Cause you think you're really cool
    When you're on drugs
    And you put on your headphones
    And you step into the zone
    When you're on drugs
    But the world don't care
    If you are or are not there
    'Cause you're on drugs

    Give it to me, we are all on drugs, yeah
    Never gettin' enough (never gettin' enough)
    We are all on drugs, yeah
    Give me some of that stuff (whoo!)

    And you twitch in your seat
    'Cause you wanna hit the street
    When you're on drugs
    And you 'cause such a fuss
    'Cause there's no one you can trust
    When you're on drugs
    And the best of your days
    Will all vanish in the haze
    When you're on drugs
    And you wish you could quit
    'Cause you're really sick of it
    But you're on drugs

    Give it to me, we are all on drugs, yeah
    Never gettin' enough (never gettin' enough)
    We are all on drugs, yeah
    Give me some of that stuff (whoo!)

    I want to reach a higher plane
    Where things will never be the same, oh

    Give it to me, we are all on drugs, yeah
    Never gettin' enough (never gettin' enough)
    We are all on drugs, yeah
    Give me some of that stuff (whoo!)

    We are all on drugs (we are all on drugs)
    We are all on drugs (we are all on drugs)
    We are all on drugs (we are all on drugs)
    We are all on drugs (whoo!) Writer/s: Rivers Cuomo

  • Brian from Vancouver, Canadalol. I wouldnt being doing a drug song if i was weezer
  • Jeff from Austin, TxI agree with Jason. I'm a huge Weezer fan, and this song is just not that good.
  • Joe from Vegas, NvThere are actually two versions of the song, one with the lines "I want to confiscate your drugs/ I just can't get enough" which is from the initial pressing of the album, this is called the "wrong" version by Weezer. The second version has the line changed to "I want to reach a higher plane/ where things will never be the same"
  • Andy from Custer, SdThis potentially interesting song is marred by poor pronunciation of the English language. It's like the singer can't even say the word drugs correctly. He lisps the R so that the word sounds more like chugs than drugs. It's like those annoying kids in the Welch's grape juice commercials that can't even speak correctly. Sorry, can't get past it. That ruins it for me. Can't even listen to the words, too busy trying to figure out why this guy can't pronounce a simple 25 cent word.
  • Leah from Humboldt, Iai really like this song. it is cute. and i find it very funny that in the "we are all in love" video, all the people are mouthing "we are all on drugs" because they didn't record it again, they just put we are all in love over we are all on drugs. i like the message that we are all on our own kind of drug, and the whole world is crazy.
  • Joe from Roseville, CaI think that when Rivers is saying, "we are all on drugs," he's basically saying that everyone has their drug, whether it be some illicit substance, material possessions (a new Mercedes-Benz), or something else (putting on your headphones and escaping to your own little world). If you notice, he uses a lot of vague references (there's nothing about any specific drug), with phrases like, "give me some of that stuff"), then caps it off with "I want to confisicate your drugs/I don't think I can get enough," which alludes to greed and how you always end up wanting more. I think it makes a lot more sense when you consider the kind of person Rivers is, sorting of mocking and unaccepting of social norms (he's been celebate for some time, I've heard).
  • Jeevan from Brampton, CanadaWeezer is so funny! I like this song because it is funny and has a good tune.
  • Chris from Scranton, PaCuomo is simply trying to say that life is intense. He in no way thinks everyone is on drugs in the literal sense.
    I do have to disagree with the below statement. It's not even close to one of Weezers's worst songs. The build-up in the beginning is truly brilliant, and it has a catchy tune and decent lyrics. Although it is slightly repetitive, it's repetitiveness is dwarfed by "Beverly Hills."
  • Marshall from Sacramento, CaThis song is wretched. I'm a major Weezer fan, and this is easily their worst. It's so awful the way it pounds into your head, and the lyrics are below simple. Wow, somehow we hadn't figured out that drugs are really bad! Rivers has lost his edge.
  • Jaron Swartz from Mt. Laurel, NjThis is the most ridiculous song ever. wtf weezer is capable of so much better. i hate make beleive and every song on it
  • Chad from Andover, MnAt least there is Fuse, who plays the video unedited, as "We Are All On Drugs".
  • Jordyn from West Richland, WaI went to a Foo Fighters/Weezer concert and i didnt even like Weezer, but when i saw them live, they were sooo good, and like this song was so fun live. When i got back and saw the new version on MTV i almost shot someone, it was so lame, it made no sense the new way. MTV sucks.
  • Mike from Chicago, IlMTV IS BOGUS
