Well there goes Sally, my old lady
She gone crazy drawing lines on her face
And you know I got a feeling that Sally been stealing
'Cause I was hip to this, that you don't trust Skinny Lips

Sally's got a good heart, raised in a churchyard
But it ain't ever far from the backyard
To the boulevard
Cemetery girls ain't fun
They don't taste sweet like sugar plums
She wasn't always like this, but she did have skinny lips

Well I don't believe it
She don't, she don't need it from me
Hey hey hey hey hey hey

Now I seen her on weekends, my little rose garden
I say hello to all her friends and the gentlemen
Now I heard it from a junkie that my old lady
Wasn't mine but everyone's Skinny Lips

Well I don't believe it
She don't, she don't need it from me
Hey hey hey hey hey hey

Come on, come on, come on, I need a witness
Man it shouldn't be like this
'Cause I know you won't be the pill
That makes me feel that I'm the best
Come on, come on Skinny Lips
Come on and give me just one kiss
'Cause you know I only got one wish
I wanna be in love with Skinny Lips

Well I don't believe it
She don't, she don't need it from me
Hey hey hey hey hey hey

Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

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."
