Someone's waiting to fly with me
Someone's saying goodbye everytime she says hello
Cuz they both connect no one with somebody
I'm floating down this airstream
I'm floating and it's every dream I've ever had
And I'm so happy and sad
Cuz they both connect me with when I'd never been a body
Every house is a frame
Anything real has a brain
We talk ourselves out of it
But I've reconsidered it and I'm convinced
Everywhere I look has a face
Everyone who has lived has a place
Right here's every world
Every time draws a line to right now
Hold and turn the infinite
Someone's taking me all over out there

    General CommentJohn Frusciante introduced this song when he played it live at Angel Orenzans in New York. I have the mp3, and I wrote down what he said:

    "This song is written to a very good friend of mine named Jean, who is a spirit. She was possessing a person who is a very good friend of mine, who was asleep. And we've talked many times, and she tells me about what it is like in other dimensions, like places you'll go after you die. You're actually there right now; there are places that you go after you die, and you're already there. And you're already living that life simeltanously with this, because they're in a kind of time zone...where they are at every time at once. And we're only at this short period of time. People who are spirits, they live in every time zone at once, because they don't have a sense of time. Consequently they can't write songs, and they can't do drugs, they can't have sex, they can't...do all these things that we do, because we have time. You don't realize that it's time...it's not your flesh, or anything like that. It's time. You're very lucky to have time. You should appreciate it while you have it."

    His introduction ties in well with a song.

    "Someone's waiting to fly with me" seems to refer to where he will go when he dies, and the spirits that will be there with him (or waiting for him). I've seen this idea in interviews before.

    "Someone's saying goodbye everytime she says hello" refers to how the spirits are connecting to everything, thus they can say "hello" and "goodbye" (the opposites of each other) at the same time.

    The next four lines seem to be what the spirit is going through, but I'm guessing more than anything. The spirit is floating, and having every dream it ever had, and, again, being happy and sad (opposites) at the same time.

    "Right here's every world
    Every time draws a line to right now" This one is more obvious, as John talks about it in the quote.

    The lines I didn't cover I somewhat have an idea about, but I wouldn't be able to explain myself well. Some more to do with how things are connected (to the spirits? I'm not sure there) in some way.

    Anyway, this is what I got from the song.
