Through my skin you climb
To my eyes
I say goodbye
Now that you're on the inside
Blinded eyes in front of you hide
Fucked with me
I was an idiot
You fucked with me
And I haven't done shit
All about everything that I'm against so fuck this I don't need your shit
Life is pain and pain is my life
Life is pain and pain is my life
In your mind I was just a novelty
So does this define how you feel towards me
Do unto me what has been done to
You feed off the pain that's been reproduced
Fucked with me
I was an idiot
Fucked with me
And I didn't do shit I fuckin' hurt so bad now
So I think I'll just lie down...
I don't need you I just need me
I don't believe in you, so don't believe in me
Pain pain go away, come again some other day
Pain pain go away
Don't need this mother fuckin' shit, now anyway
I don't need you I just need me
I don't believe in you, so don't believe in me
Life is pain and pain is my life
I don't need you I just need me
I don't believe in you, don't believe in me

    Betrayal and back-stabbing. Calling yourself the idiot for trusting such a fucker. Could be inspired by the original bassist Shawn, but I doubt it since he was still with the band when this song was recorded.

    Song Meaning

    The lyrics strike me as referring to a relationship that is WAY to close to be a band member or a mere friend. Come on now, "Life is pain, and pain is my life"? Or "I fuckin hurt so bad now, so i think i'll just lie down"... That sounds much more like it's referring to a girlfriend or something like that than a guy you hang with or work with.

    Personally, this song TOTALLY makes me think of my wife.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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."
