100 Girls or maybe more
Who left me passed out on the floor
I know it might be wrong
I had to write this song
For a hundred girls and hundreds more

There was Katherine in Manhattan
Her mouth was always flappin'
She's always a distraction
'Cause she always wants some action
At 1 she took me in a cab
2 in a soho bar
3 she got real bad and dumped me in a subway car

These are Mary's voodoo ways
We would stay in bed for days
In an alligator haze
In her swampy southern place
She broke me down on bourbon street
curled up at her feet
As Mary flashed the parades
I fixed myself with hurricanes

[Chorus]
100 girls or maybe more
Who left me passed out on the floor
I wish I heard you tell me
Make up your mind
Wake up, make up your mind
Make up your mind

This is Daisy, this is crazy
always tellin' me I'm lazy
Her endurance would amaze me
And her swearing didn't phase me
It was based upon a sweet lie
Like a butterfly she showed herself in many phases
Had a thing for public places
Late one night in Fenway park
She led me naked through the dark
Daisy let me suffer there
Smothered in my underwear

[Chorus]

There was Hilary and here's the thing
I thought that she was 17
she was 18 but looked 16
and told me she was 23
Valerie who hated money
Stuck me to the sheets with honey
Caroline from Amsterdam
Took off with some other band
Megan, Kim and the rest
I love you all and that's the test
If I wake up in time
How will I make up my mind

[Chorus]

100 girls or maybe more
who left passed out on the floor
I know it might be wrong
I had to write this song
For a hundred girls and hundreds more

    This is a cool song. Mostly I think it's about some really @#$%ed up realtionships, with some really crazy girls.

    It's about a guy who had all of these girls that he really liked, (maybe even loved.) he has screwed them all up in some way, probably because of his fear of commitment.

    I don't know if I agree with ya slud, While it might be about all these girls he's liked or even loved, he also says, "100 girls or maybe more have left me passed out on the floor" so maybe they left him. "Caroline from Amersterdam..." Or maybe it's a mix.

    Maybe he's just gloating :).

    I think he's just lived a life of sex and drinking and had some great times. Now that he's getting older, he's afraid of ending up alone . He realizes he had 100 opportunities or more to build something more substantial.

Ministry
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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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."
