She, she flies without no feathers
A fool to try to catch her
Well I don't know
'Cause I don't know, I'm a fool

Yeah, a visionary's daughter
She don't care that you want on her
She'll kill you once
You won't mind

You'll ask her twice
Hey hey rocket boy
Gotta lotta life behind you
Hey hey mockingbird girl

Gotta fly don't let him hold you
'Cause you were born a lucid flower
A tulip and I killed her
I was born to play the fool

Unlike you
No sex
I'm bored with anticipation
This love song radio station

I guess you'll sleep
I'll count sheep
And watch you dream
Hey hey rocket boy

Gotta lotta life behind you
Hey hey mockingbird girl
Gotta fly don't let him hold you
So let's make a run and buy a rocket 'copter

I bought it from a crooked cop
Her breath it smelled like a beer
A warm beer

    General CommentYa know? Weiland's lyrics on this ENTIRE album are vague as hell...

    I can't explain the chorus part, but in the verses it seems to detail (something along the lines of) a guy who is totally completely obsessed with a girl ("she flies without no feathers." Angel?)

    and he knows there's no point in pursuing her ("a fool to try and catch her.").

    And how he'd do anything for her ("She'll kill you once, you won't mind...You'll ask for twice.")

    The 2nd verse sounds like he'd rather just lie with her and watch her sleep than have sex with her (No sex...I'm bored with anticipation) and than ("I guess you'll sleep, I'll count shepp. And watch your dream)

    ...There's my interpretation anyway.

    General CommentThat sounds like a good interpretation. I always thought it was you got to find a man and have him hold you down. show me a reason tell me a lie it's a sin because of your reply. I think the girl is a user.
