"Suffer Some" as written by Perry Farrell, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins, Robert A. Ezrin and Martyn Lenoble....
She's so lucky that she had to suffer some
Left her happy home began to drink and slum
She's got problems?
C'mon name me one?
She makes problems
Like makin' new friends
She had to suffer some
Be like everyone
Had to suffer some
She gets free down at the scream
Oh yeah
All night running through her living room
All her sucked up her friends and daughter too
You poor mother! You cashed your little one in
For a three bag fill up and a new syringe
She had to suffer some
Be like everyone
Had to suffer some
Was in the pink now she's in the blue
Oh yeah
And you know
She's seen better days
Did you hear?
How far she's gone
Far away
Far away
She's gone far away
May be the last song you'll be sung
Ain't no sweet left in that emotion
She's got problems
And more problems to come
Cause it's worse than murder
That's what you done
Now you go suffer!
Yeah she had to suffer some
Be like everyone
Had to suffer some
Was in the pink baby's feeling blue?
Yeah she had to suffer some
Be like everyone
Had to suffer some
She gets in free
Always was a freak
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

    General Commenti thought the line "Was in the pink now she's in the blue" could mean maybe a transgender person... (stereotypically blue for boys/pink for girls) because that could be why they were called "freak" and it would fit in with the suffering throughout the whole song too...

    General CommentOn a pregnancy test, pink means not pregnant, blue means pregnant. It sounds to me that she had a daughter from having fun (thus suffering some from it). So she cashes her little one in (?) just to get more drugs. This songs sounds like a downward spiral ("more problems to come") as a result of living life however you want.

    General CommentKjarkas is right about the song. I think its about Perry Farrels mother who was addicted to drugs and died of a heroine overdose when he was four.

    General CommentHis mother did not die of a heroin overdose, she either shot or hung herself (can't remember which) when Perry was three.

    General CommentEven though the original Suffer Some demo meddles a bit in the middle it crushes the neutered version on the Strays album.

    The lyrics don't seem as contrived either. If I get the time I'll throw the demo lyrics up here or perhaps start a new page since 2/3's of the lyrics are different.
