heeeeeeeeeeeeeeee was high. when your high off of weed, your mind is stimulated in a relaxation way which influences you to think beyond the norm. and you figure well sh*t, wayne is on cocaine, which makes you feel like your Superman himself, then waynes on Ex, which gives you wings and makes u stay WIDE awoke 4EVER, and then he's on the best marijuana in the whole country, the WHOLE WORLD PERHAPS. so what do you come up with??? a well thought out song.

for all who didnt know, lil wayne can actually be a conscious rapper when he's tripping balls

Analysis

Through the controversy of Lil Wayne's messages, many have failed to realize the greatness of this song. "I Feel Like Dying" exemplifies not only Wayne's depth as a rapper, but also his poetic ability that is frequently overshadowed by club beats and weak lyrics.

Lil Wayne begins the track with unsettling optimism. He claims, "I am sittin' on the clouds, I got smoke comin' from my seat / I can play basketball with the moon, I got the whole world at my feet." He chooses to portray himself far above society through the cloud imagery, even claiming that the whole world is at his feet. This delivers a sense of both freedom and ownership. Lil Wayne is far beyond the normal world with his unearthly powers.

The second verse of the song transitions Lil Wayne's condition. Now, he appears more futile than in the previous verse. The imagery changes from beyond earth to a more normal landscape: "Swimming laps around a bottle of Louis the Thirteenth / Jumpin' off of a mountain into a sea of Codeine." Later, Lil Wayne claims, "I'm at the top of the top, but... still I climb / And if I should ever fall, the ground would then turn to wine." The diction of "mountain," "swimming," and "ground" all elucidate a sense of earthliness - greatly contrasting the first verse. Finally, Wayne ends the verse with "Pop, pop, I feel like flying." This final line coincides with the succeeding verse.

Verse three depicts Lil Wayne's fall from the euphoric state he was in. It begins with a familiar optimism; however, he quickly admits, "I am a prisoner, locked up behind Xanax bars." As he declares himself a prisoner, it becomes obvious that his state is an unwanted, but necessary being. In lieu with his tremendous lifestyle, he claims, "I have just boarded a plane, without a pilot." Instead of the boundless clouds he once sat upon, Wayne is now trapped within the plane, symbolically the drugs. While he admits to being trapped within this enslaved state, he claims "And violets are blue, roses are red / Daisies are yellow, the flowers are dead." Each flower represents the popular gangs of the Bloods and Crips; yet, the yellow color remains obscure. Lil Wayne likely references the archetypal color of yellow to represent the hope for the street life. The yellow, like the other colors, however, is already dead. The hope for all is gone as the flowers are dead. Finally, Lil Wayne provides social commentary for society: "Wish I can give you this feeling... I feel like buying." The freedom he once felt, a feeling that can no longer be achieved, must be purchased. Here, Wayne provides the deepest message: the materialism of society is incapable of purchasing independence.

Def. a great song. The metaphors were running rampant. I always used to think of that "boarding a plane without a pilot" line as him saying there is basically no way for him to land safely, so he know he's about to k!ll himself with all them drugs, and the only way he'll stop being at the top is when he's dead.

Most wayne songs don't make me think about sh*t lol.
