You found a new love now.
He is your type.
No need to pose now child.
I had to say goodbye.
I heard things were better now.
With your wonderful life.
Your life is perfect now.
But mine just died.
And do you miss me when I'm feeling sad.
I called your friends to see what you said.
It's the weekend.
Go have fun.
It's the weekend.
You never loved me at all.
The places that you go at night are pre-planned secrets in the back of your mind.
And you tell me that I'm not second best but I know I am, you liar.
As I clinch my teeth and I hold my breath
And these tears begin to pour from the words I said
Hey kid write a song about her.
That's right you can't.
It's the weekend.

    Such great lyrics. The whole album revolves around having to just let someone go, & this song is no exception. pretty self explanitory, she's moved on. & now he has to.

    Rookie of the Year is such an awesome band. I love Silhouettes (all eyes above.) But that song isnt on here...hmm. This song is similar lyrically to Your Own Disaster by Taking Back Sunday. (Hey lush, have fun, it's the weekend.) Chances are there is no connection though...

    This song is so sad! Its sad because it relates to me on a very personal level. My ex is moving on pretty well without me, and Im strugling to move on without him.I hate the fact that he is finding new girls to like, girls that arent me. Im moving on though, slowly but surely...

    This song owns the best part is, "Are secrets in the back of your mind And you tell me,"You're not second best" But you know that's a lie.Tonight, and another good part is, hey kid write a song about her, thats right you cant!

    The Weekend - This song was written to my High School Sweetheart (Jeneane).. after we broke up... 4 years!! is a long freaking time! hehe But after time.. the song kinda became more about Summer after changing some of the words around.. The song explains itself... if you listen.. i love the line "the places that your go at night, are secrets in the back of your mind" so true for alot of you girls and boys out there!!!! and if any of you think your second best in a relationship! leave it! If you have limewire or the RE Released Version of (Having to let go) this song has a bit harder edge to it at the end.. alot of people were mad we didnt do that on the album version.. but i wanted it to be more ambient and pretty the whole way thru for the record. Were gonna start doing this song live.. .just me on a acousitc soon.

    And do you miss me when I'm feeling sad? I called your friends to see what you had said. Tonight, it's the weekend. Go have fun. You never loved me at all. And the places that you go at night Are secrets in the back of your mind. And you tell me, "You're not second best" But you know that's a lie. Tonight

    I really wanna put that on my Bebo but it'd be so fricking obvious who I was referring to that I couldn't bear it... I need to move on :(

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.

@[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."
