She says, "you don't want to be like me
Looking for fun, getting high for free"
I'm dying, I'm dying

from Lana Del Rey – Carmen Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Carmen reiterates that she doesn’t think that she should be a role model.

As a prostitute she is often gifted or paid in drugs, thus she is being given them for free. Yet this excess of narcotics will ultimately lead to her death — in her own mind she knows she is already dying.
