It was way after midnight, all the village was asleep,
All except for one young villain through the night did creep,
He went down to the church, started ringing the bell,
Everybody came out looking, running like the hounds of hell;

"There are lights in the castle, they are blazing all night long,
Let me tell you everybody there is something going on,"
So they took to the torches and went over the wall,
Someone went ahead to tell of horrors hiding in the hall;

"What did you see?" "I saw an apparition,"
"What did you see?" "A monster on a bed,"
"What did you see?" "I saw an old magician,
Waking up the living from the dead!"

Keep away, keep away, they are making the perfect man,
Keep away, keep away, they are making the perfect,
Making the perfect man!

So they called for the doctor, the doctor said, "it's strange,
He's got pistols on his finger, he's got love on the brain,
He's got a tongue good for lying and the legs to run away,
He will fool all the people all the time some day!"

"What will he be?" "A leader of the country,"
"What will he be?" "A member of the press,"
"What will he be?" "A banker selling moonbeams,
You can watch your money going west!"

Keep away, keep away, they are making the perfect man,
Keep away, keep away, they are making the perfect,
Making the perfect man!

"I'd like to spend a night with you,
and show you what I am"

"What will he be?" "Could make a politician,"
"What will he be?" "A member of the press,"
"What will he be?" "A banker selling moonbeams,
You can watch your money, you can watch your money,
You can watch your money going west!"

Keep away, keep away, they are making the perfect man,
Keep away, keep away, they are making the perfect,
Making the perfect man!

Perfect man, perfect man,
Making the perfect man, making the perfect man!
I'd like to spend a night with you
Making the perfect man, making the perfect man!

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."
