"Silvergun Superman" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Find you in the dark
Read you like a cheap surprise
Without shame
Sell me out and frame your name
I can hear when the pig whispers sweetly
Jealousy is the weapon you kill me
Keep a dime for a truth you might tell

You toed the line and I know it was mine
Couldn't hide write a wave ride a lie
Let me know can I friend ask you why?

Rolling back the days
With my friend I love to play
The little one
Superman with silver gun

I can hear when the pig whispers sweetly
Jealousy is the weapon you kill me
Keep a dime for a truth you might tell

You toed the line and I know it was mine
Couldn't hide write a wave ride a lie
Let me know can I friend ask you why?

Wait for me, take a dive take a piece of my life
(Leave me numb) wait for me, tell a lie, try to take my life
(Leave me numb) wait for me, take a dive take a piece of my life
(Leave me numb) close to me, and I'll leave you numb

You toed the line and I know it was mine
Couldn't hide write a wave ride a lie
Let me know can I friend ask you why?

You toed the line and I know it was mine
Couldn't hide write a wave ride a lie
Let me know can I friend ask you why?

You toed the line and I know it was mine
Couldn't hide write a wave ride a lie
Let me know can I friend ask you why?

    General CommentThis song is about jealousy. A friendship gone sour b/c of jealousy. It tells how envy and coveting can come between a friendship and tear it apart.

    General CommentAt the end, Rob DeLeo has a crazy drum solo. Afer the solo, someone laughs and moans "Oh God".

    General CommentI think it may be about media journalists making stuff up about a famous person and ruining their lives for a bit of money, hence the "Take a dime, take a piece of my life". And maybe their jealous side being revealed could lead to their downfall, so they use it as a weapon against them

    If not that then I agree with Cuevo's interpretation of jealousy.

    General CommentI don't know anything about STP, but this track has been stuck in my head for a week now.
    To me it sounds like a relationship gone sour, but with a child envolved. For some reason i just see oblique references to a custody battle.

    General CommentI'm no expert on STP, but didn't Eric Kretz play drums, while the DeLeo brothers played bass and guitar?

    General CommentYeah, to me it seems as though this song is about jealousy and how it ruined a friendship. There may have been some backstabbing as well.
