I'm the man you don't think about when you think about love. A lame white devil from the bars uptown with a tattooed smile pulled tight around me like a killer's glove. I'm the man you don't want to know. I'm the one, I'm that ugly one. Walking slow death ten feet behind you wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go. You'll feel the presence of a crippled man inside my mind wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go. You'll jump like danger at every face you see wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go that reminds you of a life like me. Wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go. You'll know my name, you'll know what I am, for what I am. Yeah baby, I'm the man that you will never want when you want to have sex. Broken body and a misshaped head. Only bring to conscious mind the unclean smell of bitter sweat. I'm the man you will never make when you want to make love. I'm just the man who holds your glance in violence wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go. You'll feel the presence of a crippled man inside my mind wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go. You'll jump like danger at every face you see wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go that reminds you of a life like me. Wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go. You'll know my name, you'll know what I am. Yeah, for what I am. Oh, baby, baby, I'm the man. Yes, I'm the man. I'm the man that you will never need when you need to break down. I don't have the soft answers you need, all I have are questions and my shoulders just aren't strong enough. I'm the one you don't want to know. I'm the man inside every man. I'm waiting patiently and watching wherever you go. Hey, wherever you go . . . Yeah, girl wherever you go .

    This is my favorite song by colorfinger. It seems to ba about a man who is always rejected by woman. The one girls never want. But it almost seems like he might be a stalker or something. "I'm waiting patiently and watching wherever you go" It's got a great tune to it though. yeah...

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
