You're all slaves.

So sit back bitch, what the fuck's it gonna be?
Are you listening to me?
It's your dependence robbing innocence,
Is this really who you wanted to be?

Rock bottom is your wakeup call. (2x)
Oh my god you're pitiful, your dependence robbing innocence.
That makes you a slave to substance, eeah!
Slaves, you're fucking worthless.

You see that you've hit the bottom, you see everything is wrong.
You see that you've hit the bottom (slaves in shackles).
You see that you've hit the bottom, right now your mind is gone
You see that you've hit the bottom (slaves in shackles).

Slaves! To substance, eeah! That makes you a slave!
You're fucking worthless!
I'm gonna sit back with my shades on
Watching you make all the same mistakes we all went through.
Everything that I've been through that I regret,
I'm watching you use now ever since we met. (3x)

It's your dependence robbing innocence,
Is this really who you wanted to be?
Slaves in shackles! Never to be set free,
That makes you a slave! (2x) to substance, eeah!
That makes you a slave! You're fucking worthless!

(And now you see that you've hit the bottom,
And now you see everything is wrong.
And now you see that you've hit the bottom,
And now you see that your mind is gone.
And now you see that you've hit the bottom,
And now you see that everything is wrong.
And now you see that you've hit the bottom,
That's why I wrote this song! )

    I went christian with it an kind of imagined the song to be from a christian point jesus or the word of god being the substance and people try to live for "him" and try to help people but are blinded and eventually use the word to bring people down instead of helping hence robbing the innocence by pointing the finger with the word making people feel bad might push them to wrong life choices. Please don't judge it's just a view from a point.

    How people that use drugs eventually hit the bottom and depend on and use other people like their loved ones to get what they want. "it's your dependence robbing innocence" and "that makes you a slave to substance" refers to that in my opinion.

    It is about someone who is suffering from addiction and how their addiction is not freeing them, it is hindering them.

    He's saying how although he's made some mistakes with substances in his past, he's watching someone else do the same thing, but they refuse to change.
