Started out last night,
I was thinkin' of days gone by
Of the times I've had,
And the things that I've left behind

Some change,
Some die,
Still we manage to survive
It's knowin' when and what to do
It's up to you
Don't know what's goin' on,
I can't wait 'til

One summer,
I'll find a way
One summer,
Will always remain
One summer,
Remember the way

Hauled down
Turned around,
Find myself facin' the wall
I think back to school,
It's all the same,
Slightly different rules
Outside on your own,
Watch yourself 'cause you're all alone
I know what's going on,
I can't wait 'til

One summer,
I'll find a way
One summer,
Will always remain
One summer,
Remember the way
One summer,
Never the same

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

I think back not far,
Drivin' down the beach in my car
Another place,
Same time,
Icky runs along a fine line
Down there,
No chance,
He's trapped in a different romaance
He's life a fait accompli,
He never did see

One summer,
I'll find a way
One summer,
Will always remain
One summer,
Remember the way
One summer,
Never the same

One summer,
I'll find a way
One summer,
Will always remain
One summer,
Remember the way
One summer,
I'll find a way
One summer,
Will always remain...

    The song is about changes that we go through during our lives and the decisions we make to grow and experience different things. It refers to learning life's lessons and letting go of habits and interests at stages of your life in order to experience new ones. The final verse refers to someone who has stagnated and is repeating the same routines and has never really changed. It is their own loss to be stuck in the same old rut and never learning or broadening their life experiences.

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."
