harsh stone white eyes behold bruise baths soak crying bones every days appeal to stop spirit calm on valium hate permeates and fills the air icy clouds the atmosphere illusions pull hair no reaction how was this done it exists by extraction of reason drooling drips the bile of sanity through the thought lines vomiting were even the clock wailed and sped past two tic tic toc in time in the real understanding myself thinking stand back unafraid and unaffected stand back non molested were even down down down again down here in the cracks face hidden cracks harsh stone white even were even

    General CommentHehe - now all the ads to the right are about are about drug testing and detoxing. I feel compelled to try to make them something more esoteric:

    Rhino, Watermelon, Rajistan, Vacuum, Purple, Paper.

    Obviously about D**gs, so no point discussing that, but I feel that when that machine gun bass drum kicks in, its one of those great musical "moments."

    General CommentOne of SP's many songs about drug addiction. And they definitely speak and write the truth about it.

    General CommentListening to a radio program about Mars i heard them talking about icy clouds in the atmosphere. The red planet has nothing to do with coke, but i find it fun to think about.

    My InterpretationThis is song is certainly about heroin addiction.

    As someone who went through heroin addiction, and still battles it. I know exactly what Ogre is talking about here.

    He also warns you in this song, that's it's not worth trying, stay away from it, it will kick your ass.

    stand back
    unafraid and unaffected
    stand back non molested

    This song brings tears to my eyes, it's very powerful.
    really hits home for me.

    Song MeaningI SUBMITTED A YOUTUBE VIDEO LINK.
    A backing video from their concerts, the song is indeed about drug addiction.
    But while a member RIP did die from a heroin overdose, the song is about crystal.
    heroin isn't rock, (stone). During this time ogre was on a major downward spiral with meth. In fact during the entire recording of last rights, he was out of his mind the entire time. Thats why/when the decided to break up, William's death while unrelated, delivered a severe blow to the remming members.

    General CommentI don't think the song is specifically about one drug. Near the beginning of the video backdrop, there is an Opium poppy (flowerless, left as a pod) shown amidst stacks of cash. Later a pill is shown in a spoon, being readied for injection. At the end, he yells from cracks, to crack crack. I think a myriad of hard drugs were used. Meth ups, heroin lows and others in-between.

    Song MeaningI believe the song title is not related to the "drug or drugs" mentioned lyrically. No reaction, how was this done? People on crystal definitely react to just about anything and everything (speaking from experience (decades ago)). Heroin promotes bruising at injection sight, around on flesh and in veins etc. as well as causes bone pain = Bruised bath soak crying bones. Everyday wishing it to stop. Meth users can really only think of fixing up again, not stopping. Knew heroin users that used, but wouldn't stop talking about wishing they could quit. Meth, not as much with the vomiting, heroin it's a big side effect. I think the Harsh Stone White is mainly the toilet, for a lesser part maybe the bathtub and sink. Down down down the drain = a correlation between the vomit and bloody water going down the drain as he felt his life was.
