My interpretation of "Low" is that the song is about the struggle of heroin addiction. Not only do lyrics in the song point to this conclusion, but the time it was written (1994) In the early and mid 90's heroin was big in the rock and grunge scene. "Don't you wanna go Down?" The lyrics reference poppies, aka poppie plants, which is the plant that heroin is made from.
