You said you can't get to heaven unless you get high
But there's no word of hell on the way back down
You said it's now or never
You only live once

Would you be so quick to walk over to my grave?
You said you'll never be younger than you are tonight
Now I've never felt weaker in all my life
You said it's only a one off, only a line
But now it's a circle, all of the time

Well, it's a one man cult and he's serving his line
It's a "Lust For Life" but it's a lifeless wine
He kissed her hand and then he found out her name,
It's Death and now he can't seem to wake

You can't run with the foxes and yet hunt with the wolf
You can't run with the foxes and yet hunt with the wolf

Tell me the truth
Are you addicted?
Tell me the truth
Are you addicted?
Tell me the truth

I think I'm losing my mind
I think I'm losing my mind
They say the poison's in the dosage and they must be right
Left with panic attacks and death riding our backs
It all looks so much worse on the way back down
I think I'm losing my mind
I think I'm losing my mind
They say the poison's in the dosage and they must be right
Left with panic attacks and death riding our backs
It all looks so much worse on the way back down
I'm so fucked up since I hit the ground
I'm so fucked up since I hit the ground

Revive me

    What i'm wondering about is the title of the song, it's also the title of a classic fairy tale in which a fox leads a wolf into trouble by showing it the temptation to take things like sheep. The wolf is greedy and this results in his eventual destruction. Interesting, no? Considering the relationship of the fairytale puts a stronger emphasis on the other person mentioned in the song.

    i definitely think this is about either coke or meth. "only a line" and "now it's a circle" suggest that because when you do coke or meth, you start with a line, feel good, and then you chase that first good feeling all night until you run out, which leads to addiction. the chase never ends, just like a circle.
    "the poison's in the dosage." too much drugs is poison.
    "You said you can't get to heaven unless you get high, but there's no word of hell on the way back down" getting high feels like heaven, till you're coming down off your buzz when it gets worse and worse.
    "It all looks so much worse on the way back down" well, it does. this could be talking about coming off an addiction, where you truly see the evil of the drug you were addicted to, or just coming down when you feel like shit.
    so yeah, def about some coke or meth.
    bad oli.

    This is about the breaking point in his drug addiction.
    Hence the line:
    Now I've never felt weaker in all my life
    You said it's only a one off, only a line
    But now it's a circle, all of the time

    Only a line (line of cocaine) but now it's a circle, meaning it's a never ending drug use.

    Well this is obviously about drugs.
    I'm guessing someone has introduced him to them, and now he's addicted. And the person who started him off, is addicted too.
