I Took A Pill In Ibiza - Mike Posner



The Experience: You don't wanna be high like me, never really knowing why like me, you don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone. You don't wanna ride the bus like this... darling all all I know are sad songs... Drugs, and how hollow they leave you...



Music video: He takes the pill, and immediately turns into a paper mache bighead version of himself. He can't blink, can't feel, can't get a sick grin off his face. No matter what he does, he can't feel it. He gets stoned, gets sex, gets his party on. But it's not worth it, because he loses himself, loses his feelings, loses who he his. He's high, but you don't want to be high like me.

The Meaning of I Took A Pill In Ibiza: Darling, all I know are sad songs. You don't know who to trust. You spend the night with girls you don't know, but you can't open up to a real relationship. Drugs take you high, but you don't wanna be high like me. In the end, once you pop that pill you're stuck up on a stage for everyone to see, singing sad songs. And you can't stop. Mike Posner paints both sides of a user's life. The high... and the very real lows.

Ask yourself: Do you still pop that pill, knowing that it's not worth it?

LYRICS:

I took a pill in Ibiza
To show Avicii I was cool
And when I finally got sober, felt 10 years older
But f-ck it, it was something to do
I'm living out in LA
I drive a sports car just to prove
I'm a real big baller cause I made a million dollars
And I spend it on girls and shoes

But you don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

I'm just a singer who already blew his shot
I get along with old timers
Cause my name's a reminder of a pop song people forgot
And I can't keep a girl, no
Cause as soon as the sun comes up
I cut 'em all loose and work's my excuse
But the truth is I can't open up

But you don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs

I took a plane to my home town
I brought my pride and my guitar
All my friends are all gone but there's manicured lawns
And the people still think I'm a star
I walked around downtown
I met some fans on Lafayette
They said tell us how to make it cause we're getting real impatient
So I looked 'em in the eye and said

But you don't wanna be high like me
Never really knowing why like me
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone
You don't wanna ride the bus like this
Never knowing who to trust like this
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing
Stuck up on that stage singing
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs
