Listen what I say, oh
I got your hey oh, now listen what I say, oh

from Red Hot Chili Peppers – Snow (Hey Oh) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kiedis is getting confronted about his drug addiction, and therefore, he is telling his close ones that he is trying to choose wether he wants a stable life, or an unstable life.

This sounds like a demand from a drug dealer. This person has his “hey-oh” (i.e. cocaine) but to get it, Keidis has to listen to him. This shows how pathetic he was while under the influence of drugs: he was totally subservient to some stranger instead of doing what he actually wanted to do.
