My last, chance at sex was simple enough where I could breathe Why can't,
everthing just be a certain way to let me see common sense, would tell me that
the cancers eating right through me and failed tests, would tell me
that my life's in jeopardy

Why can't I breathe one more time

My last, chance at life was spent trying to burn the world with you I guess,
it's easier with three people trying to kill me

Why can't I breathe one more time So I can breathe again just breathe

fallen down so low it burns me it's tim to change the scene faith is one way to
relieve me you built this up so help me breathe

So I can breathe again why can't I breathe one more time

You're paralyzed I can't breathe

Why can't I breathe One more time

    well this song means to me that someone is dying and wondering why they can't breathe one more time and most likely he's close close to death because his soul is telling him he's paralyzed and he want is to breathe again.(sorry to all the ladies for all the he references).

    i think its about the fact that he's about to die and regrets what all he has or what all he hasn't done .it's about regret.

    Crossbreed freaking rules. Neways I think this song is about needing your space, Like people are always on your back and stuff, and you just need some space to 'breathe'

    It's about a sexualy transmitted disease you f*cks. "My last, chance at sex.." He has sex and he picked up a disease and found that his whole world turned around all because of that and all he wants is for everything to go back to normal.

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

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."
