The song is about celebrity excess and how said celebrities would drive themselves to their own demise just by following their lifestyle. The beginning portion was a quote made by John Wink (performing a faux-Australian accent) of The Faculty, which was heard on Trina's answering machine. He made it while he was under the influence and he forgot about it until it was brought up before the song was sent to play on the radio.
(Unknown Australian Man's Voice)
Yeah so, I heard from the grapevine that you were that into me.
I just want you to know that I-
Wait, who's this?
The white coats made my day
Cuffs cut off my veins
Drink what's in the flask
Don't care what shall remain
I know who you are
But you face tells me different
Another old cog
In the machine of life
When you came into my world
You ceased being omnipresent
Huddled in a bright-ass cage
(just go right in)
Pleas for release don't break distance
Signed your warrant for your arrest
Yet you act like you're innocent
But you are just another motherf---ing cause.
You sit and wait for
You ask me to taste
What you just wasted
Drive your venom into my mind
Just to suffer for eternity
You'll never get to know peace
[Jim Morales dialogue]
Hello person, it's Jim. I miss you. What was twelve years feels like twelve minutes that play back every twelve seconds. See you in an hour.
Music Video Edit
The video features the band traveling to Los Angeles, stalking and beating a generic pop singer whilst there. It includes facial distortion (ala Black Hole Sun) and cuts to stop-motion scenes featuring a desolate mountain home (the band performs the song inside) with rats and insects crawling out of a hole in a bottle of bleach. At the end of the video, the band members turn into dogs and run towards the house.
