    I think this song is about a harsh return to reality. I suppose it could be about drugs, but I think it could be about any kind of delusion. It could be anything you've convinced yourself of, tried desperately to believe. This song is the moment when you realize that you can no longer lie to yourself anymore. It's the moment when the truth comes out and you have nowhere left to go. If you think about having your head in the clouds, then it is gravity pulling you back down to earth, to reality. That realization is harsh and confusing, which is why there is both distortion and sorrow in this song. Gravity never lets you go--the truth is inescapable. I think that "I don't pull me down" is simply expressing a sense of yearning and hopelessless. The singer doesn't want to face reality. He wants to continue living in his delusion, but gravity is pulling him down anyway. It's gravity; it's not him. It's not his fault. But gravity is relentless, and he must face the truth.

    Very nice! I like the suicide one! But I think it is more of an appreciation of the law of gravity. "Never let me go". This song is why I love these guys. you never think about gravity, but we couldnt exist without it

    It's clearly about smoking weed he don't want to come down from the high, I listened to a bunch of their songs and most of them sound like they are about smoking pot. plus I can't make out what he's saying in between the sing but it does sound like this. Puff puff puff puff puff pass, Go on and puff it nigga

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Ok, this one's easy. I don't pull me down on you. I don't pull me down on me. Gravity does that. Thats the depressing thing about it, always pulling you down... "never let me down gently" as gravity doesn't change its power. It is an all-powerful thing, you can't stop it. He is really replacing depression with gravity because something's always bringing him down.
