I know you think I’m wrong but I’m not your tour guide
Have a guess, I don’t let you look inside
Cold dry stone

What makes you want to carve your initials in me?
Rained and weathered, erasing, hard to read
Find me distant, outwardly rough, obscene
Cold dry stone

Cold and dry a stone
Cold and dry a stone

I’m not a cornerstone in a palace for you
Time will bring your very own hard truth
Not to worry, ice covered rocks still move
Cold dry stone
Cold dry stone

    General CommentAbout people who are famous such as rock stars, don't wanna be used by others, they are human beings like anyone else. They exist in this world and are not just withered stones with no emotions, they are like anyone else. Don't use them, don't carve your initials into them to ride their coat tails and try to get own self famous in the process.

    General CommentI could feel the stone(s) weight on my back, which must be what was planned and could be referring to the weight on the members' backs since Layne's death, maybe even since they were formed. Words good and bad, rumors, guesses all through 25 years, a quarter century.... They're tired and moody, but could still sound heavy and mysterious, as if saying " we're not dead yet ".

    Lyrics; a mild rebuke, or an implied criticism towards everybody, which I got my share. Just very heavy words if you sense !
    "Time will bring you your very hard own truth,
    Not to worry, ice covered rocks still move. "
    This is the survival part, refreshing hopes, mending broken things......

    As the final note, Stone is a stoner.

    My InterpretationTake a look at the young woman. Any guesses? Does appear to be using a "basket" to collect things. Damn tired i'd bet. What gets me is strenth of the cart.
