Perry Farrell discussed what he wants to write about lyrically on Jane’s Addiction’s next studio album in an interview with Straight.com:
“I really want to write more about love, that climb up the mountain to get to love,” Farrell says. “It’s not an easy climb, and just like climbing a mountain, it can be fatal.
“Most murders have to do with people that were, at one time, in love,” he adds. “At one time, they couldn’t wait to see the other person. They’d look in the mirror and they’d clean themselves up and go, ‘I hope I’m good enough to be with this person.’ And the next thing you know they’re choking them to death. It’s a bizarre thing—and it’s definitely compelling.”
