sold your souls down in hollywood, one by one
walking towards north hollwood, now they know your name
river phoenix, (???)

walking what happened i thought he was speaking so why did he cry, (???)
walking what happend i thought he was laughing so where did he go after the show?
river phoenix, (???)

    General Commentyeah, it is 'Joaquin what happened'- it is also "i thought he was vegan, so why did he cry when MARTHA ate the crab?" talking about girlfriend Martha Plimpton who ordered soft shell crab in a restaurant on one of their first dates, he apparently got very upset. so the story goes..

    General CommentI heard the same about the vegan line, but my question is why would he would even be asking that, isn't it assumed a vegan would be upset about someone eating a crab? Perhaps he is saying "he wasNT vegan", or maybe the HE should be stressed like HE was vegan so why would he care what MARTHA is eating??
