"Wicked Garden" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Can you see like a child?
Can you see what I want?
I wanna run through your wicked garden
Heard that's the place to find ya
Cause I'm alive So alive now
I know the darkness blinds you

Can you see without eyes?
Can you speak without lies?
I wanna drink from your naked fountain
i can drown your sorrows
I'm gonna burn Burn you to life now
Out of the chains that bind you

Can you see just like a child?
Can you see just what I want?
Can I bring you back to life?
Are you still alive?

Burn
Burn your wicked garden down
Burn your wicked garden to the ground

Can you feel pain inside?
Can you love?
Can you cry?
I wanna run through your wicked garden
Heard that's the place to find ya
Cause I'm alive So Alive now
I know the darkness blinds you

Can you see just like a child?
Can you see just what I want?
Can I bring you back to life?
Are you still alive?

Burn

    My InterpretationMy interpretation:
    Can you see like a child?
    Can you see what I want?:

    * When you see the world through a childs eyes looking at life in general; they are free from bounderies they are innocent, yet too discover the world, lacking inference which most of us base our decisions from. So basically can you look at it this way with out judgement, and then you will see what I want.

    I wanna run through your wicked garden
    Heard that's the place to find you
    cause I'm alive
    So alive now
    I know the dark has found you:

    He is saying he wants to run through her wicked garden: Basically this is a side of her he wants to see, it' a place to be free. How he says it; he knows that this place exist and he realizes it now. He want's to bring her back to a place of freedom., out of the dark; its a metaphor, for instance: being unaware. like wake up, let it all go.


    Can you see without eyes?
    Can you speak without lies?:

    Are you capable of seeing and speaking without judgment, he feels she is damaged, a bit corrputed maybe by todays society, or a past relationship, can you let all that go? He wants the purest part of her, to look beyond what some people cant look past.

    I wanna drink from your naked fountain
    I can drown your sorrows
    I'm gonna burn,Burn you to life now
    Out of the chains that bind you:

    I want a taste of what is pure. I can help you forget, I'm going to set you free from the problems that haunt you. lets be free together.

    Can you see just like a child?
    Can you see just what I want?
    Can I bring you back to life?
    Are you still alive?

    *When you see the world through a childs eyes looking at life in general; they are free from bounderies they are innocent, yet too discover the world, lacking inference which most of us base our decisions from. So basically can you look at it this way with out judgement. Can I help you see life in a new way... Are you capable of seeing and living free?

    Burn, burn, burn
    Burn your wicked garden down
    Burn, burn, burn
    Burn your wicked garden to the ground, yeah.:

    * Get rid of all your problems, what ever is holding on to you, set you free from what ever it is that is holding you back. He wants to set her free...


    Can you feel pain inside?
    Can you love?
    Can you cry?

    * Are you numb or can you still feel
    basically: are you capable of feeling, he is asking her? If you can, that means you are alive and do you realize this?

    I wanna run through your wicked garden
    Heard that's the place to find you
    Cause I'm alive
    So alive now
    I know the dark has found you

    Can you see just like a child?
    Can you see just what I want?
    can I bring you back to life?
    Are you scared of life?

    Burn, burn, burn
    Burn your wicked garden down
    Burn, burn, burn
    Burn your wicked garden to the ground, yeah.

    General CommentThis song is straight out about sex.
    And Keanusmomma is right, Wicked Garden represents female genitalia.
    "Wicked" is referring to the cruel emotions that women can sometimes convey. Women have a tendency to persuade men with sex, and act like "teases". So that's where that term came from. And yes, I am a girl, so I am not downing women.
    "Garden" is the often humorous name given to the area.

    General CommentWhy does "wicked garden" stick out as a euphamism for female genitalia? Maybe it's because of that joke...Anyway, I haven't spent a long time thinking about it, but my vote goes to "it's about SEX."

    General CommentDef their best song. Im not gonna comment on how their sound changed. Just cuz its a waste to have to hear more stupid rambling about how certain people think their new shit sucks. Its just annoying after awhile.
