(Lyrics: Jason of R.K.L.)

As I sit here all alone and wonder why now once again
What? The others weren't enough? You had to take another friend?
Now once again too soon I search for words that just aren't there
I give to you my feelings in a song and with a tear
We're somehow close and still so far
I hold you deep in my heart
I hope and pray these words you'll hear
That you're at peace and free from fear
The question asked full in my rage, how could you make this end?
Just seems so wrong that in his prime you'd go and take my friend
If goodness comes from tragedy then let this be the case
So only thoughts of joy are thought each time we see your face

Why did you go? I have to know
I hope it's not in vain
Cause there has to be a reason
Or some goodness in my pain
Passion churning sensess blurred
All the things you taught we learned
Some things in life we'll never know
Like how much time we've left to go

Never fair or justified
I sat alone I sat and cried
Of all the questions we must ask
Not when, where, who, but why so fast?!
Now looking back I see the day our eyes they first did meet
An alligator shirt some jeans and Docs upon his feet
With outstretched arms we said hello his face a welcome grin
You wanna go and spark a bowl nice to meet you my name's Lynn
A battle forges on but it just don't seem the same
Cause I'm gonna win this battle and I'll do it in your name
I say goodbye to you my friend I bid a fond farewell
At least you're up in heaven now not stuck here in this...hell!

On with the show we have to go
My thoughts they have been spoken
You touched our lives gave others hope and now our hearts are broken
Of all that come and all that go there's few that have the spark
The strength the joy the energy to truly fill our hearts
Of whom I speak I sing these words and give this final hymn
So I say it loud with love and pride and shout...

Then someone looked up to the sky look there's Lynn he said
And off you flew Dobbs by your side I knew then you weren't dead
You just changed shapes free as a bird to soar the sky's above
And so we turned and waved goodbye as sadness turned to love

    there were a lot of people dying in jason's life around the time that lynn died, and he was so used to death that his death didn't hit him as much as it would have. this song is about how much he loved lynn in life, and how he met him, and how he'll miss him, but knows he's better in heaven.

@[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."

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.
