Follow Me Lyrics
You don't know why
You can't turn around and say goodbye
All you know is when I'm with you
I make you free
And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea
Follow me everything is...

This is definitely about Heroin/dope. Coming from a former/recovered (im not a 12 stepper) heroin addict, i can tell you that the first time i heard this song, back during my active use, i immediately knew what it was about.
I would think it would only be obvious to someone either actively using, or someone who made it out the other side with their mind, and life, intact. If you havent been there, i can see why people could hear other meanings.
Awesome song, but it does bring me back, for better or worse

The song was originally based on heroin addiction. Research people, research. He said, she said, I think this, You're wrong on that.... Opinions, NONE matter. People are stupid anyway and will argue my interpretation response cause they think they know everything.
Pretty sure the artist knows what the song was about. There were several interviews where he confirmed the song's true meaning according to its' writer AND watching people argue this without truly knowing what the writer was expressing in the lyrics is pathetic.
Yes, this can easily be turned around into infidelity by a man or woman, but the facts are facts. It's all over the internet ffs, how people still argue all of this baffles me.

I think this song is about addiction. It could be the addiction talking to the addict. when I listen to this song I am reminded of what active addiction felt like. I really like this song good reminder of where I never want to be again.

I think that the song's more about the person singing telling someone they care about (i.e.: relationship partner, friend, child, etc.) that they may not be perfect, but they're the best thing said loved one has ever had and they won't "find nobody else like me [them]".

i always thought of this song about a women who just kept wanting more and more and then he didn't have anything left to give so she kicked him out i thought that was the meaning because he says i cant give you money i cant give you the stars your better of if you dont know why and swim through your viens like a fish in the sea could mean love

Its a fact........Uncle Cracker had said in an interview this song is about heroin addiction. Its like heroin is singing the song to the addict.

i believe that its about a girl whose bf or husband treats her badly and shes found another guy to take care of her.

It's probably not about heroin

I guess this song could be interpreted in 2 different ways. This song to some people could be about some cheating on there partner. Or it could be about heroin addiction. I guess its just the way you to understand the song. :) so in hine sight it has to different means. And its up to each person to Make that decision about it :)
