Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/7/18

***

Today, for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt of find/found. Thanks, Helen!

I was drawing a blank on this one, especially after last weeks prompt of ‘search’. Come to find out, Helen is on a three week (possibly four) streak of prompts that connect in some way. It will be a surprise, unless we figure it out ahead of time, and we can guess what it is. I’ll have to give it some thought.

Anyway, I like this song. In reading about it, it seems it is loosely based on a true story of trying to find a missing or kidnapped person who was later found deceased. So sad.

Here’s an interesting fact to me…my daughter had a pet rabbit a long time ago, and she named it Weiland, after the singer in this band.

This video is an acoustic version, performed on Headbangers Ball (MTV), which I like a lot. The official video is good, but I was detracted from the lyrics and the meanings of the song by the craziness of that video.

“Plush”, by Stone Temple Pilots, was released as a single from their album, “Core”, in 1993. It was written by Scott Weiland and Eric Kratz, and is on the Atlantic label.

[Verse 1]
And I feel that time’s a wasted go
So where ya goin’ ’til tomorrow?
And I see that these are lies to come
So would you even care?[Pre-Chorus]
And I feel it
And I feel it[Chorus]
Where ya goin’ for tomorrow?
Where ya goin’ with the mask I found?
And I feel, and I feel when the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone?
[Verse 2]
And I feel, so much depends on the weather
So is it rainin’ in your bedroom?
And I see, that these are the eyes of disarray
So would you even care?[Pre-Chorus]
And I feel it
And she feels it

Where ya goin’ for to tomorrow?
Where ya goin’ with the mask I found?
And I feel, and I feel when the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone?

[Bridge]
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it

[Chorus]
Where ya goin’ for tomorrow?
Where ya goin’ with the mask I found?
And I feel, and I feel when the dogs begin to smell her
Will she smell alone?

[Outro]
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it
When the dogs do find her
Got time, time, to wait for tomorrow
To find it, to find it, to find it
To find it
To find it
To find it

  1. OMG!!! The acoustic version gives it just that extra umph!! I had no idea what the song was potentially based on. Another example of me hearing without listening. I am trying to pay more attention to lyrics of my song choices these days. Thanks for sharing.

      • Oh, yeah! That’s a good one! I had to spend some time this morning just listening to a lot of their songs. I may not have remembered the name of the song, but I sure remembered hearing them so many times. They had a lot of really good ones!

    • Isn’t it great with just the singer and the guitar! I like the song originally, but this just makes it so much better. I’ve been paying more attention to lyrics, too, after doing this challenge for awhile. So many songs I never really thought about more than if I liked the music.

    • Thanks, Mary! I’ve always liked their songs, and I hadn’t heard this one in such a long time, so I’m glad I remembered it! Sometimes the acoustic versions are a lot better. Didn’t MTV used to have that Unplugged show, too. I watched a lot of those.

  2. I’ve heard the acoustic version of this song played on the radio occasionally and didn’t know where it originated from. As much as I generally do not like grunge or early 90’s alt rock, I do love both this and “Interstate Love Song!”

    • Interesting you’ve heard it on the radio. I don’t think I’ve heard it, or the official one either, except on MTV a long time ago. These days I listen to an oldies station sometimes, but who knows, this song may be old enough to be on an oldies station playlist by now. 🙂
