She's so pretty
In blue jeans
She walks my mind all night
Keeping my thoughts clean
I can't forget her
These nights we share
Is love that's shattered

Tonight
When I walk you to your car
As I meet you at your front door
And now I wait
For this moment
When I can say
That nothing matters anymore

This town is like an anchor
With a broken chain
And i'm on that ship that's sailing away
So please don't say a word 'cause
That's exactly what I
Want to hear

And I can't sail
On angry waters
And I can't sail
With my feet on the ground
And I can't sail
On angry waters
And I can't sail
With my feet on the ground

This town is like an anchor
With a broken chain
And i'm on that ship that's sailing away
So please don't say a word 'cause
That's exactly what I
Want to hear

And I can't sail
On angry waters
And I can't sail
With my feet on the ground
And I can't sail
On angry waters
And I can't sail
With my feet on the ground

Turn the radio up to
Ignore this silence
I think you think too much
And don't care enough

And I can't sail
On angry waters
And I can't sail
With my feet on the ground
And I can't sail
On angry waters
And I can't sail
With my feet on the ground

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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."
