"Pepper" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Mike Shinoda, Dave Farrell and Joseph Hahn....
Mikey got with Sharon, Sharon got Sheriee
She was sharin' Sharon's outlook on the topic of disease
Mikey had a facial scar and Bobby was a racist
They were all in love dying they were doin' it in Texas
Tommy played piano like a kid out in the rain then he lost his leg in Dallas he was dancin' with the train
They were all in love with dying they were drinkin' from a fountian
That is pouring like an avalance coming down the mountian
I don't mind the sun sometimes the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people's eyes
Some will die in hot pursuit and firey auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountian
That is pouring like and avalance coming down the mountian
I don't mind the sun sometimes the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people's eyes
Another Mikey took a knife while arguing in traffic
Flipper died a natural death he caught a nasty virus
Then there was the ever-present football player rapist they were all in love with dying they were doin' it in Texas
Holly caught a bullet but it only hit his leg
While it should have been a better shot he got him in the head
They were all in love with dying they were drinkin' from a fountian
That was pouring like an avalance coming down the mountian
I don't mind the sun sometimes the images it shows
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look through other people's eyes

    General Commentok this is what i think its about: heroin.
    "they were all in love with dying they were doing it in texas"..there was a heroin epidemic in texas in the 90's
    "they were drinking from a fountain that was pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain"..i think its kinda like..avalanches look like white powder..heroin comes as a white powder but then u do wtv to it to make it the liquid that you inject..what they "drink" could be the heroin (not really drinking it but injecting)
    "cinnamon and sugary"..apparantly if your like near someone on heroin it smells like a cinnamony smell (from what ive heard)
    "you never know just how you look through other peoples eyes"..on drugs, you always appear different to other ppl than how you think you appear. bcuz u believe u appear to be making total sense but sober ppl r like "wtf" lol

    and i think the people they mention like "mikey" and "sharron" could just be users maybe.
