I
have never felt such frustration Or
lack of self control I
want you to kill me And
dig me under I, wanna live no more One

who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be I've
tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me For
me I

want to taste dirty stinging, pistol In
my mouth on, my tongue I
want you to scrape me from the walls And
go crazy like you've made me One

who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be I've
tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me For
me You

you, are so special You
have the talent to make me feel like dirt And
you you, use your talent to dig me under And
cover me with dirt One

who doesn't care is one who shouldn't be I've
tried to hide myself from what is wrong for me

    I think he was talking about demri, addiction problems, sucidal tendencies, btw how do you sing to heroin? Lol but correct the cycle of drug addiction weighs a ton although it wouldn't be so bad if doctors didn't descrimnate drug addicts and treated them with their choice of plan for medication whether it methadone maintenance or vicodins why should doctors play dictator over our fragile life, but about the song I was surprised this song didn't achieve a single but awesome song it has a good vocals and a nice rift.

    Layne was basically singing to heroin. The song repeatedly states that he doesn't want to live anymore because of what his addiction makes him feel like, he descibes what it's like to be in that cycle.
