Smacked up again behind the door
Begging please give me some more
A vein that's open for the day
Feel the pulse beneath the skin
And smiling as it all begins
Oh where have you been?

Judy's staring at the sun
Judy's staring at the sun
Judy's fantasy has come

So amplify this little one
She's a volume freak
She hears as much as she can see
And what she sees she can't believe
It's just what Judy needs a moment of release
To give her peace peace peace

Judy's starting at the sun
Judy's day passed out of sight
Judy will be suffering tonight
She's suffering

She passed by and said good-bye to him
And in a rare and lucid state
She said my days are unoriginal
I wanna fade fade fade
She's suffering

Judy's staring at the sun
Judy's day passed out of sight
Judy will be suffering tonight

    General CommentThis one's not that mysterious. There's a genuine quality to Judy that just can't be fully expressed becuase of her heroin (heroine) addiction.

    Its a song of sympathy and remose and, possibly, affection.

    Don't stare at the sun kiddies...

    General CommentThe headstones also have a song called "Judy". It's meaning is not as clear, but there are similarities.

    "She spends her days looking in to the sun"

    Song MeaningPoignant song about heroin and the grip of addiction. Seminal song for 90's alternative music. And the lead singer's cousin is Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden.
