“The stuff I did, I’d get so into it…”

The stuff I did, I’d get so into it that I missed a lotta shit. I can see that now. I’d get into things so deep that if I didn’t get into it, I didn’t even know about it. And I think that it’s still the same way. I don’t think that’s changed at all… and now I have to try and find that joint I left somewhere. Nothing’s changed.
