Your pussy's glued to a building on fire
I paint my mind just cuz i'm alive
And if you see me roaming the hilside,
Wont you come along...
You paint your eyes
Mine are in the sky
No wordly word I could say could be golden
The smile on my face isn't always real
But the way you make me feel
Is all that's really real
Your little dark horse
Oh, won't you come along...
You paint your eyes...

    General Commentin my opinion the whole song speaks relatively clearly (as clearly as a john frusciante song can go, at least) until the part where he says "you little duck house". i don't get that.

    General CommentTo say there's an exact meaning to a John song is ludacris, so I'm just going to say what I've seen in it.
    To me, I always interpreted the song through the title.
    Your pussy's glued to a building on fire. It always makes me think of being attached to a "burning building" by something that gives you pleasure, or brings feeling in you. If you don't detach yourself from the building on fire, you'll go down with it.
    The rest of the song is open-ended enough for the building to be interpreted as love, drugs, whatever appeals to you.
    That's just what it always meant to me. Even if that wasn't the intention he had in mind.
    And on a final note, this song is absolutely beautiful.

    General Commentthe pussy represents a pussy and the building on fire represents a large flaming erect penis. The pussy is glued to the penis. Another way of saying a girl is in love with a guy, and vice versa. Since they are glued they are stuck and will not part. JUST A THOUGHT

    General CommentI think its energy is reminiscent of a tortured, "hold me closer tiny dancer..."

    Lyric CorrectionPretty sure it's 'little dark house'?
    Would make more sense than duck...

    I can totally hear the Tiny Dancer-ness in it too.

    General Commentthats beautiful peeper my meaning of the song is sort of like that but the name of the song has no intention to me its more of what john is saying about life
    and he didnt like life back then for reasons you know
    but
    the line "i paint my eyes jusy cuz im alive" it makes me feel like i can do what i want but in a respectful kind of way
    i love JFon December 22, 2004   Link
