"Church On Tuesday" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
And I don't believe it
Is she really gone again?
And I don't believe it
Is she really gone again?

I'll find a way to you someday
I'll find a way to you someday

And I don't believe it
Is she really gone again?
And I don't believe it
Is she really gone again?

I'll find a way to you someday
I'll find a way to you someday

Father's always smokin'
and your mom's at church on tuesday
and your brother's always drinkin' and dyin'

Father's always smokin'
and your mom's at church on tuesday
and your brother's always drinkin' and dyin'

And I don't believe it
Is she really gone again?
And I don't believe it
Is she really gone again?

I'll find a way to you someday
I'll find a way to you someday

Father's always smokin'
and your mom's at church on tuesday
and your brother's always drinkin' and dyin'

    General Commentdoes anyone ethink No.4 is a concept album??

    After listening to this album alot I think this whole album is completely about Scott's addiction and it leading to the downfall of his first marriage.

    Down-The addiction kicks in. Scott keeps asking the drug what its point is, the drug's "response" is "You're all mine now."

    Heaven and Hotrods- The regret for trying heroin in the first place kicks in. "You don't get it, if you've never had it so you better off just leave it alone."

    Pruno-Scott's arrests, more references to his heroin addiction and his search for answers

    Church on Tuesday. Janina (I think that was her name?) leaves Scott. He thinks this is only temporary and he'll find his way back to her.

    Sour Girl-Scott realizes his wife is leading a happier life without him.

    No Way Out-Depressed and his addiction taking over, Scott feels without a family anymore, still trying to find the "answer" to what the meaning of his addiction to heroin is.

    Sex and Violence-The anger over the divorce kicks in and Scott begins to blame her for his current state.

    Glide-Not sure exactly. I can tell it has something to do with heroin once again and its control over him but I can't really figure that one out.

    I Got You-Scott isn't singing to a girl like it would seem like on the surface, its him coming to terms with his own addiction and that he needs help.

    MC5-Reprise of themes from Heaven and Hotrods, you won't get it unless you try it.

    Atlanta-Scott coming to emotional terms with his divorce, calming down, and remembering the good times with his wife. Moving on.

    General CommentIt's pretty clear to me this song is about a girl who's parents don't really care about her so she runs away from her family.

    General Comment"No Way Out" isn't bad and it's heavy...

    I agree this song is too repetitive but not as annoyingly repetitive as "MC5". I think that is STP's worst song.

    My OpinionI love this song. And I love "No.4"...And "Shangri La-Dee-Da" had more great songs than "Days of the Week" & "Hollywood Bitch." "Wonderful" is an amazing track, as is "Transmissions from a Lonely Room" & "Too Cool Queenie." Also, "A Song for Sleeping" was a beautiful track.

    "No.4" may have promised a harder sound, but take it for what it is rather than what it was supposed to be. It's a great album, repetitive at times yes...But great, none the less. Every track is gold.

    General Commentyou are right "No Way Out" is a good songbut this album was supposed to be their return to harder rock after a pop sounding tiny music album and other than those few songs it was a disappointment

    General Commentthis maybe the worst stp song there is,way too repetitive which became a consistant thing on no.4,an album that they promised would be a real heavy rock album but was a real disappointment aside from down,heaven and hotrods and sour girl.
