Army (3:22)

Cover of The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner

From The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner and 8 other releases

“Well you know it’s funny because I’m not a pot smoker at all and I was really nervous about it, decided I would smoke some pot in my bedroom in high school. So I’m in there getting high and I thought, ‘Y’know what? I think I need to join the army so I can pay for school’ and I went out to tell my father, and he’s sitting there watching TV and I said, ‘Hey poppa d’ya think I should, I think… I think I’m gonna join the army’ and he just looked up at me and said, ‘You’re fucking high’ and looked back at the TV set. And I went back to my room going, ‘Can he tell? Or is that just an expression? Maybe he can tell. It’s just an expression… can he tell?’”

Well I thought about the army
Dad said, "Son you're fuckin' high"
And I thought, yeah there's a first for everything
So I took my old man's advice
