Regenerate the impoverished souls
that echo you
Bleed to feed the masses
soup line two times two

They got your picture from the Sunday plain dealer
that listed you (dead)
Forget the story
there's a bounty on your head
They fingered you

Right away, right away
Green light, get a move on
Right of way, right of way
Stop sign, put the brakes on
Right away, right away
Green light, get a move on
Right of way, right of way
Stop sign, put the brakes on
Positive cell regeneration
Positive cell regeneration

Celebrate the immortal youth
that wasted you
Peel the skin back from all the lies
that blistered you
They hold for ransom all the watered down truths
That splintered your faith
So sell your soul, because you're already dead
They've listed you

Right away, right away
Green light, get a move on
Right of way, right of way
Stop sign, put the brakes on
Right away, right away
Green light, get a move on
Right of way, right of way
Stop sign, put the brakes on

To the fields where lesser mice go
To the fields where men follow
To the fields where lesser mice go
To the fields where we all follow
To the fields where lesser mice go
To the fields where men follow
To the fields where lesser mice go
To the fields where we all follow

Right away, right away
Green light, get a move on
Right of way, right of way
Stop sign, put the brakes on
Right away, right away
Green light, get a move on
Right of way, right of way
Stop sign, put the brakes on
Positive cell regeneration
Positive cell regeneration

    wow what a great analogy,i can see the similarities now between the two "sell your soul cause your already dead theyve listed you" and "dont plan the funeral before the body dies " each song is unique in its own about the same issue the media had layne dead or dying before he actually did and they have nearly done the same to scott.

    I think it follows in the footsteps of "Grind" by Alice in Chains in that how the media will always claim that a rockstar well known for drug abuse(such as Scott)is dead,when it is far from it,just so they can get noticed.

    i think this song is about all the rumors scott dealt with on his road to being sober

    "Peel the skin back from all the lies That blistered you"

    Such a shame that this brilliant musician would always be portrayed like "a druggie that will soon find his way to the coffin" since 1996 or so and even more during the 1998 jail thing. And was scapegoated since then. Not sure he payed that much attention to what the media said of him, or even cared at all. Being that this is the second or third song he's talking about this, it seems to be more of an inner struggle. Being jailed for not exactly commiting any "crime", just because bullshit laws. All the while, the guy who raped him at 12 years old had all the freedom in the world with his very real crime never being punished.

    Scott said there was a celebrity death pool prediction that he would die soon. This was after his 2nd arrest/relapse, iirc. He also had a very bad OD in the late 1990s. (Dr Drew said ‘we almost lost him’.)

    i've been trying to figure it out myself... i think the last few lines have something to do with the novel "of mice and men" or the poem it was named after, but i'm not sure if it does or what it means.

    I love the dark and sinister lyrics and overall music. It gives me the chills. And I also thought that the last lyrics were about "Of Mice and Men" a great book by the way.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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."
