"Kickstand" as written by and Cornell/thayil....
Kicksand, you got loose and I threw up
Yeah kickstand, you got the juice to fill my cup
My mother say that it's alright
My mother says that's the only life

So do it right
Do it right
Come stand me up
Come stand me up
Come stand me up

Yeah kickstand, I got saddle made of leather
Oh kickstand, I got the words to come together
I got the urge to ride your trike
My mother says that's the only life

So do it right
Do it right
Come stand me up come stand me up come stand me up

Oh kicksand, you got loose and I threw up
Yeah kickstand, you got the juice to fill my cup
My mother say that it's alright

Do it right
Do it right
Stand me up stand me up, stand me up

    My InterpretationCocks and motorcycles? You losers..
    His mother's said it's alright? About his cock? Are you even thinking?
    Let's apply the old "if you don't know what a soundgarden song is about, it's about heroin" logic..
    Kickstand = bent spoon to cook heroin in
    Getting loose and throwing up? Somethings wrong with the spoon.
    It has the juice to fill his cup because, hello.. Heroin in the spoon..
    My mother says it's alright /only life. In heroin circles a "mother superior" is a veteran junkie, because of the length of their "habit", it's a thing, I'm not making it up.. So the veteran junkie is telling him it's ok, it's the only life..
    Other than that, I don't care to put more effort into this song because it's shite, it has to be the worst soundgarden song ever...

    General CommentI first heard this song when I listened through the soundtrack for the PC racing game Road Rash, and I've loved it since!

    This comes right after "The Day I tried to live" as a quick pick-me-up. After such a depressing song, he's all upbeat and thinking he's gonna seize the moment again. Basically he just feels his moment of loss has passed and he's ready to stand up and get back into it again.

    Like "Never Named" and "Drawing Flies", it's another short segue that means absolutely nothing and kicks ten insane types of ass.

    General CommentIm afraid if you found a tied meaning between two consecutive songs schizima, it is a 99% chance that youre wrong. I agree i like the flow of the album but artists dont write songs that way and they are put in a different order on the cd than the way it was recorded. Albums usually do have a group of songs with a similar feel because they are written in a ceratin era of emotion, but most dont write songs for their songs.
    Only album i remember that truly tells an entire story and is ordered to tell it is Operation Mincrime by Queensryche

    General CommentI think It means both: He likes riding motorcycles cause he's a man with a big cock and motorcycles are fitting vehicles for real men with big cocks.
