God's Bathroom Floor

God's Bathroom Floor is one of my favorite Atmosphere songs. This is largely because it is the first song that I really remember from the group. I first heard it about five years ago when Slug and Eyedea were performing a show at the Weisman Art Museum. The group didn�t have the following that they enjoy today and were able to play to a small crowd at an unusual venue. The song is about the effects of heroin. It talks about the pain and addiction as well as the numbing bliss that make it such a dangerous drug.

�I�m tired out by the distances achieved walkin in my sleep
floors got shifted since the high got a tad too deep
ask Dad to keep cool ill call him back
as soon as I resume normal, and get out of this bathroom�

�Autopsy pages read euthanasia i.e. irony
well here I be within a pool of my drool, sedated
windows dilated comatose life overdose
tell Jacob Miles keep it wild-style
I promise I'll smile
and check the floor, god's got nice tile�

�From a head full of pressure
rest the senses that I clutch
made a date with divinity but she wouldn't let me fuck
I got touched by a hazy shade of god, help me change
caught a rush on the floor from the life in my veins�
