"Stacked Actors" as written by and David Eric/hawkins Grohl....
Oh mirror mirror
You're coming in clear
I'm finally somewhere in between
I'm impressed
What a beautiful chest
I never meant to make a big scene

Will you resign to the latest design
You look so messy when you dress up in dreams
One more for hire
Or wonderful liar?
I think its time we all should come clean

Stack dead actors
Stacked to the rafters
Line up the bastards
All I want is the truth

Hey hey now, can you fake it?
Can you make it look like we want?
Hey hey now, can you take it?
And we cry when they all die blond?

God bless, what a sensitive mess
Yeah but things aren't always what they seem
Your teary eyes
Your famous disguise
Never knowing who to believe

See through
Yeah, but what do you do?
When you're just another aging drag queen?

Stack dead actors
Stacked to the rafters
Line up the bastards
All I want is the truth

Hey hey now, can you fake it?
Can you make it look like we want?
Hey hey now, can you take it?
And we cry when they all die blond?

    General Commentwhen i first heard it i thought (and still do) it had something to do with Cobains death seeing as he was part of nirvana (duh) and kurt was married to the bitch who the song it was about.
    quotes like these help my theory i guess

    "I think its time we all should come clean" aobut how she killed him...

    "your teary eyes, your famous disguise" the way she faked her sadness when he died the word fame i think means that once it happened to better believe she instantly became famous.

    Also words like all i want is the truth and can you fake it could also be used for that.

    My last part is a stretch but what the hell
    "And Cry when they all die blonde" who was a famous rock sing/guitarist that died who had blonde hair who knew dave and the bitch?

    I rest my case.
    I may not be right though...

    General CommentI think (would like to think) that this song is a direct stab at Courtney Love.

    My OpinionYeah-its about the blonde whore.

    I was around & VERY dedicated to NIRVANA and DAVE G

    I always laugh when the issue of HOLE is brought up. Even though I DESPISE courtney love-
    the songs (holes) are not bad, some may even say they are quite good.

    And they ARE, but thats only because SHE didn't write them.

    Check out PRETTY on the INSIDE (courtnet & the gang wrote) and then listen to LIVE THRU THIS (KURT wrote) and CELEBRITY SKIN (mostly written by BILLY CORGAN)

    It sad how far she has gotten riding others coat tails (and laps)

    General CommentThis song was said to be written by Dave to Courtney Love because of his hate for her. He once quoted that "Actors should never try to be musicians." Just like Courtney Love... and of course he mentions blondes. I'm not sure though. He's never clerifyed that, not that I know of anyway.
