Can you see like a child?
Can you see what I want?
I wanna run through your wicked garden
That's the place to find ya
'Cause I'm alive So alive now
I know the darkness blinds you

Can you see without eyes?
Can you speak without lies?
I wanna drink from your naked fountain
I can drown your sorrows
I'm gonna burn, burn you to life now
Out of the chains that bind you

Can you see just like a child?
Can you see just what I want?
Can I bring you back to life?
Are you still alive?

Burn, burn, burn
Burn your wicked garden down
Burn, burn, burn
Burn your wicked garden to the ground

Can you feel pain inside?
Can you love?
Can you cry?

I wanna run through your wicked garden
That's the place to find ya
'Cause I'm alive so Alive now
I know the darkness blinds you

Can you see just like a child?
Can you see just what I want?
Can I bring you back to life?
Are you still alive?

Burn, burn, burn
Burn your wicked garden down
Burn, burn, burn
Burn your wicked garden to the ground

    General CommentYes the lyrics are a bit tattered and misquoted, but I think we all pretty much know what they really are, as for the rest of the comments... Why is everyone spoutting off about Weiland's credibility instead of what the song really means? I think we've jumped off cue a bit.

    Personally, I think the song is about being free and breaking someone of their innocence, in a sense. It's obviously about a person he wanted to be with but I think there may have been some resentment towards them in a way. The song is too vague for me to make a pure interpretation of, but I do like it a bunch. STP is definately one of the best bands out there, and Weiland is definately an amazing lyricist -heroin or not.
