Alice In Chains – Real Thing lyrics

I messed around as a little boy
I grew up, made the blade my new toy
Friends said boy with what you screwin' around I said
Don't concern yourselves and just
Gimme another blast
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt
Take it away, don't want no more
Even if you say just one more
I won't leave you alone, Ooo

I grew up, went into rehab
You know the doctors never did me no good
They said son you're gonna be a new man
I said thank you very much and
Can I borrow fifty bucks?
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt
Taake it away, don't want no more
Even if you say just one more
I won't leave you alone

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line }
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Straight to nowhere }

I messed around as a little boy
I grew up, made the blade my new toy
Friends said boy with what you fuckin' around I said
Oh my God and here we go again,
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt
Take it away, don't want no more, no more
Even if you say just one more
I won't leave you alone

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Straight to nowhere }

Follow me down...
Sexual chocolate baby

    To me its about messing around with drugs gradguating to harder drugs "herion". "give me another blast", "under the hill with a few notches on my belt" talking about shootin dope. After you shoot dope for a while you will get a good size lump "hill"from where you hit your vein at over an over again, and alot of addict use there belts to tie off with. "take it away dont want know more! I wont leave you alone" hes reffering to dope "follow me down sexual chocolate baby" again hes reffering too H. If you ever were a drug addict and used needels you would understand the song more.
