THEY MOVED DOWN INTO TOWN
NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN
TO STAY AROUND
THE JASMINE'S SWEET
THE AIR IS COMPLETE NOW

THEY SET UP A CORNERSTORE
TO TRY AND MAKE THEIR LIVES
A LITTLE MORE
THEIR GRIL WAS BLIND
BUT SE SAW MORE
THAN YOU OR ME WILL EVER SEE

YOU ARE THE SUN
I WANNA SEE EVERYTHING
I WILL NOT RUN
I WANNA BE EVERYTHING IN YOU

THEY SILD BAIT AND FISHING STRING
AND GROCERIES AND THINGS
EVERYBODY NEEDS
THE JASMINE'S SWEET
THE AIR IS COMPLETE SHE SAID
BUT LATELY AT THE CORNERSTORE
I TRY AND MAKE MY LIFE A LITTLE MORE
I HANG AROUND TO SEE HER
A LITTLE MORE

YOU ARE THE SUN
I WANNA SEE EVERYTHING
I WILL NOT RUN
I WANNA BE EVERYTHING IN YOU

THEY MOVED DOWN INTO TOWN
NOT TO BE FORGOTTEN
TO STAY AROUND
THE JASMINE'S SWEET
THE AIR IS COMPLETE SHE SAID
BUT LATELY AT THE CORNERSTORE
WE TRY AND MAKE OUR LIVES
A LITTLE MORE
I HANG AROUND
JUST A LITTLE MORE

    I love this song...one of Dogstar's best...Bret can sure write those lyrics! Not sure if this song should be taken for face value of a family with a blind daughter moving into town and setting up a store and teaching the "narrator" things that he could've never learned on his own or from a person that could see...he needed his eyes opened by a blind person...or if it's meant in a deeper way...not sure...help! :)

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."
