i was just about to say this... blunt roaches stink specially, thats why i dont smoke blunts and i smoke fat ass joint that i roll with hemp bob marley papers.

Maybe brad was pissed at the stink in his weed when he found the roaches in it? thats what i think... :D

I think he means that he doesn't like feeling happy when he's pissed out about something else, and he doesn't like finding old used roaches in his stash.

a roach is the very end of a blunt or a J. a roach clip is what u use so u dont burn lips and so it doesnt shit in ur mouth...

i know, i'm sure brad didn't debate about a roaches meaning when he penned this down. if you're smokin, then roaches suck. if you've got roaches in your house, then that sucks because they're grimy as hell. life sucks either way - deal with it.

Since 114 people have already talked about this, it is soooo not necessary for my opinion, but working on my rank, if I might be so honest. And also, am I the only one on here around 10pm-2am Eastern Time? I need to get more sleep. Anyway, since I am here already, I have always assumed that he meant the roaches (not cockroaches, those though do suck) in his bag of weed, as the member above me just said, in addition to many others. Anyway, either way, roaches = not good.

I always thought it was two lines as well...cuz' on "Garbage Grove" Brad and Miguel switch off each line throughout the whole rant...

...and I always thought it was weed roaches in a fresh sack, but the cockroaches in the toilet and cooking pot are very possible explanations...as is the consensus, they would all suck...but its gotta be the joint roaches in the sack...for sure...

Some one may have already said this, but I am too busy to read it all and too interested not to contribute.

Theory #843:

"Finding roaches in the pot"

With multiple stoners living in a single dwelling one stoner will often times smoke in a bathroom in order to avoid sharing with the stoners he/she lives with. Tossing the old roach into the toilet (pot) and letting it float there mockingly can be something thoroughly entertaining to revel in later.

And isn't the other line, "Saying I'm happy when I'm not.."? I'm not sure, and again too busy to check.

considering the whole song is pretty much about his shitty life, i'm willing to bet he's finding roaches as in cockroaches in the bathroom... in his house. maybe so bad they're everywhere? but, with all the smells and shit under his shoes... trash and other crappy things in his heroin enduced life. i doubt it has to do with a stingy stoner.

altho... it's not uncommon for stoners to put the burnt down roaches back in the sack, too. i duno why... but i've witnessed it. i guess to smoke later.

even more the whole debate over the deuce deuce.

1. gun?
2. beer?
3. speakers?

I think there supposed to be seperate. Im pritty sure when sublime are playing at the house of blues brad says "feeling happy when im sad" its on the everything under the sun box set. If you put it in the form "feeling happy when im sad" it being one line dosent make sence. So i think that kinda shows its supposed to be 2 lines. I could be wrong though, just my humble opinion.
