...be the death of me... - djpenquin999
It's not about drugs.. it was about a drawing by John's son.. when he asked about its name he said lucy in the sky with diamonds so he got an idea which was writing a song about it
Whoever said its not about drugs is on acid. Look at what the title abbreviates to
This is about a painting of a girl named Lucy that one of their sons made. - djpenquin999
Lucy = L / Sky = S / Diamonds = D - BoiV 1 Comment
This song's gloomy atmosphere and lyrics perfectly depict being trapped in a drug addiction. "Your life burns faster / obey your master! "
It's the anthem of all metal! Obey your master refers to, in my opinion, the fact that the drugs are controlling you and you have no control over stopping it.
Yes, it's about drugs but unlike some other songs on this list, this is an anti-drug song and it doesn't glorify drugs: it perfectly describes what drug addiction does to you and your life. Basically drugs ruin both:
"I’m your source of self-destruction",
"Twisting your mind and smashing your dreams. Blinded by me, you can’t see a thing",
"Life of death becoming clearer". - Metal_Treasure
Roger waters said it wasn’t about drugs
Best Song Ever - Glauberson
"This is a song about a substance we used to play with" - SoldierOfFortune
A song about cocaine. - Gasmaskboi19371945
Paul McCartney said that this is his ode to pot, and this is my favorite song by the Beatles. I think it's amazing. It can be easily taken for meaning love; however, lyrics like "I took a ride," and "Another kind of mind," should be some red flags for those who aren't open minded enough about it.
That’s such a clever song title. - Catacorn
This should be #1. It's EMINEM PEOPLE!
