There's something lost somewhere inside
Another darkened room where dreams all go to die
Once more a tear drops slowly to my feet
Again I recognize the triumph in defeat so tell me

What can I do when it all falls apart?
Torn straight through tell me how to feel
My broken dreams a life in disarray
I shut my eyes my silence is my cell
Cold sweats and nightmares keep me awake
The time keeps running down on how much I can take
Ripped myself to pieces on the fragments of a dream
Grim retrospective of a life torn at the seams

When the emptiness becomes too much
The voices lie I can't trust my touch
The pain of living the fear of death
You choose

    good riddance writes songs that i can really realate too, such as this one. and all the other ones. they are a great band because of the variety of things they write about. they write about death, life in general, politics, friends, love, and pretty much everything. sometimes certain things get old, like anti-flag, dont get me wrong i love them and they kick ass, but honestly how much can you say about the government over and over again? and the ataris...all cheesy love songs, but still good. thursday seems to like death. but good riddance just cant get old because of the variety, and the awesome music they make. anybody who talks shit about good riddance can shove a bike up their ass and burn in hell. if i ever hear anybody talk shit about them i'll personally kick the shit out of them. anyway, this song rocks!

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."
