"Curtains" as written by and John Frusciante....
The curtains are made for moving
Cuz you know sometimes you're not always there
You don't need it now
Your head's shaped like a cow
Till all is here, the world's just a sphere
No bigger than the balls you suck

Hey you with your head down
Don't you know that can't be where it's always at?
You've all been always there
Your head's shaped like a pear
You search thru the lights
Instead of jumped in the pie
Of life that you slice till it's just right

You're so often seen along
The west side wheel of the mills that you steal
To get around the coating of the slobs

It's always made you feel the best
You always need less and less of the casual
Forces that lead you away from the nest

I know your face
It's all out place
I know your face
It's all out of place

    General Commenti think its about watching someone who you love fall apart... but thats the beauty of john's lyrics. They can be interpreted in a way thats hits you close to your heart.

    General Commentwhy johnny ramone? he sucked, I mean he was a member of the NRA and a Republican. Why should John Frusciante write a song about someone like that?

    General Commenti think there is a little bit of feeling lonely, in this song, and also some anger, and bitterness, but I don't think it is necessarily about those feelings. i think it's about drifting away from who you really are, and becoming something you didn't expect, or want to become.

    My InterpretationThe curtains are made for moving
    Cuz you know sometimes you're not always there

    (What you know and think should be challenged, rethought, and sometimes you realize that you are not living the way you actually think you should)

    You don't need it now

    (But you can change)

    Your head's shaped like a cow

    (You think what you are told to think)

    Till all is here, the world's just a sphere
    No bigger than the balls you suck

    (Till you die everybody's world and the way you see it is just as big as your values... for most -material things)

    Hey you with your head down
    Don't you know that can't be where it's always at?
    You've all been always there
    Your head's shaped like a pear
    You search thru the lights

    (That is why there is depressed people, chasing things that they dont need, but they always lived that way and you can't think any different, your mind is shaped/not free, because you are searching for that happiness and peace by doing and thinking that you need what is shown on TV)

    Instead of jumped in the pie
    Of life that you slice till it's just right
    (But you need to just live and not be afraid and you will find your happiness)
    You're so often seen along
    The west side wheel of the mills that you steal
    To get around the coating of the slobs

    It's always made you feel the best
    You always need less and less of the casual
    Forces that lead you away from the nest

    I know your face
    It's all out place
    I know your face
    It's all out of place

    (the rest is the same idea.
    So in short, I think the message is: start living and find the true meaning of life, un derstand that the essence is not in the things you own... open spiritually and search within...
