Soul Worn Thin is a lyric from the Stone Temple Pilots’ song Big Empty, reproduced fully below. Scott Weiland has had a very public battle with bi-polar disorder and heroin addiction. I can’t help but think the words are a reference to the effect of drug use. I can tell you for sure that my soul is worn thin.

Big Empty

Drivin’ faster in my car
falling farther from just what we are
smoke a cigarette and lie some more
these conversations kill
falling faster in my car

Time to take her home
her dizzy head is conscience laden
time to take a ride
it leaves today no conversation
time to take her home
her dizzy head is conscience laden
time to wait too long
to wait too long
these conversations kill

To much walkin’, shoes worn thin
too much trippin’ and my soul’s worn thin
time to catch a ride
it leaves today, her name is what it means
to much walkin’, shoe’s worn thin
