I love the lyrics of that song, seems so personal and real...
Is it a song about depression or drug addiction ?

maybe, not too sure what Dexter was thinking about when he wrote it but i love the jumpy beat of the song I have to sing along everytime I play it.

It's about nothing. The song takes him nowhere, that's the whole point. And once he is nowhere, the song is still about nothing. The rest are just some random filler words that Dexter throws in just to make it to the chorus.














Honestly though, it's either about drug abuse or alcoholism. Or about something else. Whichever you prefer. Most Offspring songs are simply too hard to interpret.

Drugs.

Probably my favorite part is:

"The lines I draw to look at myself are turning into somebody else."

Cocaine users often use mirrors to snort lines, because the mirrors are evenly flat surfaces. I think this one phrase conjures up vivid images of addiction and the self-realization of personal decay. Word.
