Oh...
Imajin
'98
What?
Can you keep a secret
Cause I can
Hay hay hay
If you won't tell
Then I won't tell
Ohh
Keep it to yourself what?

Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matter what we do
It says between me and you

Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matterc what we do
It stays between me and you

Don't tell your sister
Or your bestfriend
What we did last night
Try to keep it inside
Cause if they knew they would'nt
Keep it to themselves
(They'd be talkin' bout)
How they heard it from the horse's mouth
So...

Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matter what we do
It says between me and you

Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matterc what we do
It stays between me and you

Verse 2 (Olamide)

Don't whisper secrets across the way
Because you (never know)
Who knows who and where they've been
Cause what they don't know they wonder about
And what they can't see they lie about
All I want is privacy
Me lovin' you and you lovin' me

If I give my heart to you
And do the things you waant me to
Would you kiss and tell
(Would you kiss and tell no, no, no, no)

Baby if I give my heart to you
Would you keep your word to me

Keep it to yourself don't tell nobody else.
Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matter what we do
It says between me and you

Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matterc what we do
It stays between me and you

Baby I'll do what you want to do
I got so much love for you
And it's just the kinda thing
I want to keep between us two
I want to keep between us two

Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matter what we do
It says between me and you

Keep it to yourself
Don't tell nobody else
No matter what we do
It stays between me and you

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.

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."
