"i want to be your hero"
says the guy to the camera
moving stage right
his eyes are the only things alive
and i know who he looks like

so cheers to the ocean
tuesday's always pouring

i heard you're hurt
your heart is under my shirt
we haven't been born yet
two silhouettes
and don't forget cigarettes

a ceiling of sound
is snowing down on
us on the ground
the carols of yesterday
are sharing the chair
taking turns curling up
with what's there

goodbye company
goodbye family
hello halos
for martyrs
like you and me

"i want to be your hero"
says me to the mirror
i hide stare at the ceiling
and smile
i'm glad you're on my side

cheers to the ocean
tuesday's always pouring

a celing of crowns
hangs over the crowd
and brings down the clowns
carry the clouds
that mark off these towns

cheers to the ocean
tuesday's always pouring
the angels share

    i'd like to know what this song is about and if harrison ford actually plays into it at all. on my radioshow, i played this back-to-back with vermont's 'arrest harrison ford!' cos i think it's weird to see two songs with harrison ford in the title. [it's safe to say that this is the dorkiest comment i've ever written.]

    Harrison Ford is a cool actor, which Bob describes in the song. "I wanna be your hero" "cigarettes" stuff like that.

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."
