"Helium On The Brain" is about self-righteousness and arrogance. All of us have had at least one or more arrogant moment in our lives. Some more than others. Sometimes we see someone so arrogant that it just annoys us no end. Arrogance is a form of self-righteousness. In fact, they're very closely related. Arrogance and self-righteousness are ways of expressing to people that you are in some way better than them and they are below your standards. The problem with this is that there are a lot of people in this world and there is nothing to say that someone's taste or style is better than another's. God is no respector of persons and does not expect you to be. Anyone can throw a ball through a hoop or say a few lines in front of a camera. It still doesn't make those people any better than anyone else. They have yet to become immortal and achieve some status that no one else can. We are to be humble, not arrogant before God. We are lowly beings when compared to God and should not try to make ourselves out to be any better than we really are.
