"Pruno" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Falling farther with a flaming hand
I knew the question but I lost the answers
I'll hold the wall for all
I'll hold it all for all
As long as no one asks no questions.

I got the message
And the message stood

One, Two, three
I got another, got another
One, Two, three
I got another, got another
I got another hit that held me the last time
Don't ya know what I mean boys?
One, Two, three
I got another, got another.

Falling fast but doing all I can
I know the questions but I lost the answers
I got the message and the message stood

Lease the one who makes it
Profit from the riddle
Kill the one that breaks it
Always in the middle
Keep the dream alive
with sleeping pills you shouldn't fiddle
Lease the one that makes it
Profit from the riddle

I got the message but I lost the race
I got the message but I lost the race

    General CommentWell... Pruno is a term used in prisons for fermented fruit (alcohol) made in plastic bags to get f-ed up on. I think the song is about keeping up a veneer of having your things together while you're really falling apart.

    General CommentYeah I agree emsguared. As well, the line "I got another hit that held me the last time" really reminds me of like a bong hit or some sort of drug hits or a swig from some alcahol, etc. It simply sounds like hes getting fucked up or did.. On something! Haha

    General CommentDrugs or no drugs, they'll always be my favorite band, and I will always think Scott is talented, preferably when sober =)
