You tell lies when you look at me, smile when you look away
Spin a web any fool can see, put your candy on display

It's a game of who needs who, who's on top, me or you
Pleasure and pain feel the same when the night is through

Girl you want me to cry, feel like I'm gonna die
Girl you want me to bleed, feel the thrill of my need
Girl you want me to bed, wish to hell I was dead
'Cause you love me to hate you, yeah you love me to hate you
Girl you love me to hate you, and the more that I hate you I love you

You're like a cat on a hot tin roof, I love it when you scratch and bite
You got my heart in a hangman's noose, pull the rope and make it tight
Love's like a chain holdin' you to me, you're the lock, baby I'm the key
Don't wanna walk 'cause we're caught in a fantasy

Girl you want me to cry, feel like I'm gonna die
Girl you want me to bleed, feel the thrill of my need
Girl you want me to bed, wish to hell I was dead
'Cause you love me to hate you, yeah you love me to hate you
Girl you love me to hate you, and the more that I hate you I love you

It's a game of who needs who, who's on top, me or you
Pleasure and pain feel the same when the night is through

Girl you want me to cry, feel like I'm gonna die
Girl you want me to bleed, feel the thrill of my need
Girl you want me to bed, wish to hell I was dead
'Cause you love me to hate you, yeah you love me to hate you
Girl you love me to hate you, and the more that I hate you I love you

'Cause you love me to hate you, yeah you love me to hate you
Girl you love me to hate you, and the more that I hate you I love you

And the more that I hate you I love you
Yeah the more that I hate you I love you

And the more that I hate you I love you
Yeah the more that I hate you I love you

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

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."
