i dont know if its been answered cause i didn't read all the posts...sorry.

brad is reefering (refering) to roaches as the stubs of a smoked joint. when he finds them in "the pot" it obviously means someone else has smoked that stash, and brad isn't happy about it. i'd be pissed too.

i'm pretty sure its two lines seeing as every line in the list of things brad doesnt like has its own line, so i dont see why he would switch it up on one...but idk, i always assumed it was about findin cockroaches in the toilet cause i've never found a roach in a newly bought bag, and even if i did, i own a scale so i always check the weight before i smoke any
well i'll tell you a story of whiskey and mystics and men...dadadah...

Maybe Brad intened them to be 2 lines but the coz he is so fucking genius, they fit together as one line and he kept it!!

I always though it meant finding little chewed leftovers of joints in the marijuana bowl.

anyone?


Good theory, I agree.

thats an awful theory.

he doesnt like finding roaches in his pot. so dont stash the roach in the bag. dump it in an ashtray or something.


i really hope someone down the line has already given this simple explanation.

well just to re-itterate, he's singing that whole section of the song about a bunch of shit he DOESN'T like to do or deal with.

so common sense here tells you saying he's happy when he's not
[which sucks to say if you're not really happy, and people do it]

and finding roaches in the pot
[which also sucks because it stinks of the rest of the bag, but happens]

are 2 separate lines.

It's happeded to me before and I was pissed. Although I'm not sure why I was pissed. I guess I just wanted a nice sack. Not one with somone elses old roaches and shit.
I've always thought it was this too it definitely makes the most sense
im justa cisco kid wrote:a roach is the thing you put on the front of the joint to keep it from burning your lips. i havent a clue why it would piss him off to see these in his stash
Obviously doesn't know what a roach is

IMO, it has to be 2 seperate lines, why would he dislike "feeling happy when he's not finding roaches in the pot"

he might dislike finding roaches...but it would be an odd lyric to state that he dislikes his confusion of emotion when he doesnt finds a roach

I can not believe this is still going... crazy... and how could people not realize it is two lines?

its def two lines...

im more concerned about how you can be happy when your not? how is that possible?

is there anyone from cali that can tell us if "pot" is slang for toilet bowl. then we can put a rest to that theory.

He did live in a crack house. so idk do roaches like weed? someone get a couple roaches, put them in a box... put a bag of weed on one side and some crack on the other n see which one they go too.

and yeah out of all these crazy theories, the roach in the weed bag makes the most sense (as in someone smoked ur weed and to stick it to ya they put the smelly ass roach in your bag)

just my dose cents :)

feeling happy when you're not is kind of like putting on an act of being happy when you might actually be feeling miserable but you don't want to talk about it.

i know the feeling... it's not easy.

Maybe I missed something in this thread before i was here, but it sounds to me like the lyrics are

"'saying' I"m happy when i'm not, finding roaches in the pot."

ahhh that just reopened the door my friend... okay so the theory is now....

He didnt like telling people that he was happy when he was tripping balls because while he might be happy while trippin balls, he was not happy with himself for trippin balls.

Or he doesn't like saying that he is happy, when in reality, he is not.

Everyone is thinking a little too hard about these lyrics.
