[...Inaudible...]
[Further] we make claims on [our teas]
[Dawn inner here] for we've nowhere to be
Nowhere to be
Nowhere to be

[Father stains], we're all on our knees
Down on our words and we've nothing to be
Nothing to be
Nothing to be

Further down we're all on our [sails]
[Paid to upheed] though we've nothing these days
Nothing these days
Nothing these days

[Further still, their stall in a daze]
We're down on our knees and we've nothing to say
Nothing to say
Nothing to say...

    these lyrics probably are not the actual one, but i think they are the closest to them i ever found.

    Father, we make claims on our knees Dawn enter here for we've nowhere to be Nowhere to be Nowhere to be

    Father, stains they're all on our knees Down on our words and we've nothing to be Nothing to be Nothing to be

    Father, down we're all on our saints Paid to appease though we've nothing these days Nothing these days Nothing these days

    Father, here they're sprawled in a daze We're down on our knees and we've nothing to say Nothing to say Nothing to say...

    This song is named after the tone on Eno's guitar...I believe he referred to it as warm jet guitar.

    I always thought it was about wanking.

    "We're down on our knees and have nothing to say - here come the warm jets!"

    My Interpretation

    On an old Eno fan forum, someone demonstrated, through "remixing" with a common graphic equaliser, that there are two overlapping sets of lyrics being montaged - and in doing so he appeared to confirm that fabled "down on our worms...nothing to pee" lyric - about oral sex in public toilets.

    It's an "end of war" song; a memorial to those who fought in the 2nd world war and those who survived there after. 11:11

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.

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."
