[?] the town too early
[?] givin' up way to soon
I don't know what you're going through
Please know that I am there for you
Oh God I've given all I can
Won't hurt to understand
This love you give to us each day
Is more then we can comprehend
I can't carry on this way
I need you more and more each day
Oh God come and heal our hearts
Times were hard and they just got harder
Learn from mistakes in the past
Just have faith and God will lead you
Through a life of joy and happiness
Oh God I've given all I can
Won't hurt to understand
This love you give to us each day
Is more then we can comprehend
I can't carry on this way
I need you more and more each day
Oh God come and heal our hearts
Every night I pray for you
Hold my hand, we'll make it through
Every night I pray for you
Hold my hand, we'll make it through

    the first line is "You threw in the towel too early". The second line is "You've given up way too soon." At least that's what my ear tells me.

    this is so great when I hear this. I first just figured that it wasn't cool hand luke and that somebody just put that name on the song, some dumb pop punk high school band, but the more I listened to it, I realized that it is chl, it's so funny...

    it's from a demo they put out a LONG ol' time ago. other songs on the demo are "Listen to Her", "Waisting Time", and "Yesterday is Gone". they perform exactly none of these songs now.

    anything before 'Wake Up...' is practically worthless.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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."
