"Chris Chambers" as written by Kelly Jones, Richard Mark Jones and Stuart Cable....
It sickens me to see
Photograph in front of me, carnation-colored pink
Stand aside and take a drink
Night club, another scene, 31st, it's Halloween
Slave to each new trend, uptown junkies, push again

The lovers and the wannabes
(They don't know how)
The radio's and TV's
(They don't know how)

Newspaper story reads
(They don't know how)
Cheap girl magazine
(They don't know how)

Stand aside and cry, never wonder why
Ask themselves why, the river has dried

Laughter after after three, shaped up to be free
Number one the most missed chart
Must have broke a thousand hearts
Parallel with the scene, tarnished star evergreen
Live life disguised

The lovers and the wannabes
(They don't know how)
The radio and TV
(They don't know how)

Newspaper story reads
(They don't know how)
Cheap girl magazine
(They don't know how)

Stand around and cry, never wonder why
Ask themselves why, the river has dried

    General CommentI always thought this song was about River Phoenix and his death. The like "ask themselves why the river has dried" kinda gave me this feeling and plus Chris Chambers was his charater name in Stand By Me.

    General CommentThought so. Cool! I was just thinking that the line "suck my banana" in Doorman reminded me of Stand By Me when the kid says "you can suck my fat one."
    Obviously they have some kind of stand by me thing going down.
