Song Interpretation
The song is a fun journey through a drug trip. The drug has altered in the song from time to time, but the most common thought would be Marijuana (Heroin referenced dripped in during 1994 versions). A Jimi Thing is a condom, the reference is more of a joke than a literal reference or some homage to Jimi Hendrix. Dave has said that the opening rift did remind band members of a Jimi Hendrix song, but very early versions were actually devoid of the Jimi line.
