binky the doormat is about a man/woman feeling like a prostitute by his/her partner.. falls to climb is probably the closest we have to an autobi. from stipe.. at my most beautiful is about/for patti smith his teen idol,guide and friend. walk unafraid is about not being scared to be differant.. fall on me is about pollution in the air.. let me in was about the last time stipe spoke to kurt cobain.. dont go back to rockville is about an ex of mike mills leaving town.. swan,swan h is about the dreams stipe had as a child.. the one i love is satire and resentment towards an ex lover.. hand is killing me from typing,but i hope ive cast some lite on things 4 u...if u need any more,e mail me!
