"Can't See Me" as written by and Gary/brown Mounfield....
Down by the river side I waited there for you
Take you back in time
You're in suspension, hey I caught you
You cannot hide, it's all inside, easy
She knows you can't see me

Yes Mr Miser, Mr, Mr Mystery she's saying to me
Saying he can't see you, he can't free you, he can't be you
He just want to be you
He needs a dealer as a healer

I've seen that expression on your face
I could have sent you to that place
Expression can't see me

Yes, I'm reminded of those days
Take you back in time, it's all unite
Here comes a reason to my rhyme
The man used to fly, he used to fly easy
But know you can't see me

I know mine, mine know me
I can sail upon your sea
I can sail upon your sea so easy she knows you can't see me

I've seen that expression on your face
I could have sent you to that place
I know you can't see me
I know you can't see me

    General CommentI think this song is about John Squire and the general break up of the Stone Roses. Its kinda sarcastic at the bit where the lyrics go "I know mine, mine know me, I can sail upon your see, I can sail upon your sea so easy, she knows she cant see me".....if you listen to the vocal melody here, its exactly the same as Squires guitar solo in the B-side 'Ride On', which was on the Ten Story Love Song Single. Its blatantly taking the piss!!!

    Song MeaningFrom Wiki

    This track refers to an incident when Brown saw Squire in a village in Hale, not long after the split of the band. According to this story, Brown waved to Squire, but Squire hid behind a newspaper and would not acknowledge him
