Weak and Powerless Lyrics

Tilling my own grave to keep me level
Jam another dragon down the hole
Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a solitary siren
One that pushes me along and leaves me so

Desperate and ravenous
I'm so weak and powerless over you

Someone feed the monkey while I dig in search of China
White as Dracula as I approach the bottom Desperate and ravenous
So weak and powerless over you

Little angel go away
Come again some other day
The devil has my ear today
I'll never hear a word you say
He promised I would find a little solace
And some peace of mind
Whatever, just as long as I don't feel so

Desperate and ravenous
I'm so weak and powerless over you
Desperate and ravenous
So weak and powerless over you

Thoughts & Meanings

A continuation of the desperate desire to pursue whatever source of addiction we have. This song really defines the desire and overwhelming control an addictive source can have on the psyche. Whether "addicted" or not, everyone has a weakness, even if we don't give in to the temptation.

This one perfectly describes the overwhelming need an addict feels to obtain their drug of choice. "Someone feed the monkey while i dig in search of China white as Dracula as i approach the bottom" references a heroin/opiate addicts tireless endless need for the drug. China white is aka fentanyl or a very pure form of heroin. "Tilling my own grave to keep me level" refers to an addict knowing they are killing themselves slowly, but they need the drug to just get by, to feel 'normal'. Getting high is no longer the objective. Feeling normal and staving off dope sickness/withdrawal is now the number one priority. Great song that has a very foreboding message. Trust me, I've been there.
