I'm trying to understand the lyrics of the song 刹那 by Creepy Nuts (link to Youtube video with lyrics).
I'm in the woods and the most enigmatic is this passage here. The lyrics go:
Starting with the meaning of ハスラー I found only this answer suggesting it is 薬取り扱う人, which I guess from the context must be drug user.
My pure guess would be:
I can't stand being sober, but I guess I need to hide it (like a weed smoking-artist does not let the smoke out of the backstage)
Is it career, position, the times, or it's connections
That would be a good excuse (for not getting the job).
But my question is mostly about ミスターハスラー楽屋から火だすな (I'm not sure how it connects to the latter part).
