assuming everything
ariel dances in my room
i clutch a red balloon
and hope i don't get taken to
vacant rooms and tunes

assuming everything
ariel dances in my room
at night her eyes are blue
but will i ever want to see them
bleed them dry to cry
i would die

cause i can't help it if your soul is
shallow in the tides

assuming everything
ariel strikes a pretty pose
i'm taking off my clothes
and everybody knows what up
with my baby snows

assuming everything
ariel shakes her silly hair
i'll come before you there
and welcome to a summer slumber
under sheets that tear
and eyes that tear

cause i can't help it if the songs
get hard for you to hear

am i among the heirs of this ariel?

cause i can't help it if my heart gets
hard for you to hold
once... twice... sold.

    just because it rhymes don't mean it's great, yo.

    This song is wonderful to rock out to in the car, though. I love the "and everybody knows WHAT UP with my baby snow-oh-ohs"

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."

Amazing

This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
