Well I got a bad disease,
Up from my brain is where I bleed.
Insanity it seems,
Is got me by my soul to squeeze.
Well all the love from me,
With all these dying trees I scream.
The Angels in my dreams,
Have turned to demons of greed,
That's mean.

Where I go I just don't know,
I got to, got to, gotta take it slow.
When I find my piece of mind,
I'm gonna give you some of my good time.

Today loves smiled on me,
It took away my pain, say please
I'll let your ride be free,
You gotta let it be,
Oh yeah

Where I go I just don't know,
I got to, gotta, gotta take it slow.
When I find my piece of mind,
I'm gonna give you some of my good time.

Yeah

Oh so polite indeed,
Well I got everything I need.
I'll make my days a breeze,
And take away my self destruction.

It's bitter baby,
And it's very sweet.
I'm on a rollercoaster,
But I'm on my feet.
Take me to the river,
Lay me on your shore.
I'll be coming back baby,
I'll be coming back for more.

Doo doo doo doo dingle zing-a-dong bum,
Ba di ba da ba zumba crunga cong dong bing,
Like an apple gift, but I went out and never
Said my pleasure, I'm much better but I wont regret it never

Where I go I just don't't know,
I got to, got to, gotta take it slow.
When I find my piece of mind,
I'm gonna give you some of my good time.

Where I go I just don't know,
I might end up somewhere in Mexico.
When I find my piece of mind,
I'm gonna keep you for the end of time.

    Basically the song's meaning is about his experiences with drugs and the death of Hillel Slovak. It's about those things he faced during those times. The lyrics "Where I go I just don't know. I might end up somewhere in Mexico" is a good example since during the Hillel died, Anthony went to retreat to a fishing village in Mexico since he can't take or accept the fact that a friend of his that he considered as a brother died.

    I think it's about him getting over his heroin addiction which he previously had, and him finding himself again.

    or

    It may be about him cheating on his girlfriend and the problems he has with it. Untill he finds his 'peace of mind' basically meaning he stops cheating.
