Lyrics:

I was Standing in the shower thinking
About what makes a man
An outlaw or a leader
I’m thinking about power…
The ways a man could use it
Or be destroyed by it
The water hits my neck
And I’m pissing on myself…
Standing
In the shower
Thinking…

Standing in the shower thinking
About a man I know don’t like me
He don’t like the place I’m headed
Same place he’s headed…
I know he’d beat me to it
If he could but he won’t do it
But he would man
If he could…
And the water is piping hot..
The water is piping hot
It beats upon my neck
And I’m pissing on myself…
Standing
In the shower
Thinking…

Standing in the shower thinking
Is my woman afraid of me?
She’s seen how far I’ve twisted
It’s just cause I can trust her
And ever since we met
She understood so she let
Me twist her good…
I twist her good…
And the water is piping hot
The water is piping hot
It beats upon my neck
And I’m pissing on myself…
Standing
In the shower
Thinking…

Jane’s Addiction is an American alternative rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1985. The band is composed of Perry Farrell (vocals), Dave Navarro (guitar), Eric Avery (bass) and Stephen Perkins (drums). After breaking up in 1991, Jane’s Addiction briefly toured in 1997, reunited in 2001 and then parted ways in 2004. Jane’s Addiction have since reunited again in 2008, with founding member Eric Avery returning on bass. The band’s varied musical style have influences rooted in punk, gothic rock, and heavy metal.
Jane’s Addiction was one of the first bands to emerge from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States. Their initial farewell tour launched the first Lollapalooza festival, an annual touring alternative rock showcase. As a result, Jane’s Addiction became icons of what Farrell dubbed the “Alternative Nation”
