Connect the cable.
Have sex a lot.
A hostile climate clouds and sickens you.
Two room condo, treeless cul-de-sac.
A nun's dark habit.
All arm, no follow through.
As a favor to me.
As a place to go.
As a favor to me.
Little stitch to sew.
Loose leaf paper
At a loss for words.
A can of dinner.
Hard to get a rise.
Hook up the Sega.
Have sex alone.
Stick a fork in a socket.
Still it's no surprise.
I think I'm coming unplugged.
I just scratch and shrug.
Itches in my teeth.
As a favor to me.
I can't watch you all the time.
Much as I would like to,
As I think I ought to.
It's hard to argue for this life.
Harder still without you.
Don't make me survive you.
Ripe fruit falls from the tree so bare.
Dead in sunshine, decomposing there.
Spoiled and keeping.
Keeping tracks to pick.
Fitful sleeping.
Were you never sick?
Another mouth to feed.
As a favor to me.
As a need to need.
As a favor to me.
Warm and sated.
The walls get interesting.
Don't know what they're saying.
Perhaps they're listening.
So I stopped talking to hear the pins drop.
I'm in the back room so I won't hear you knock.

    This is about a friend coping with depression. Blake mentions this in a live show.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

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."
